Summer is (finally) upon us. With the amazing weather here to stay for a few months, everyone wants to get outside and enjoy it. One of the best ways to soak up all of this sunshine is to get the grill going and have a barbecue! Are you looking for some new ideas to spice up your grill? Check out the options below:
Dress It Up
Before you even hit the grill, your food needs to get gussied by adding extra flavours that take your food to the next level. There are so many things you can do to add flavour to your meal: You can add seasoning or a dry rub to your meat with your own special blend of herbs and spices, you can add a homemade barbecue sauce, you can purchase one from the store, or you can create your own flavour sensation by putting together a few ingredients then spreading it over your food to make it sing!
Grill It Up
Now that your food is dressed for success, it is time to hit the grill! Burgers and hot dogs are the more popular foods choices to turn to when barbecuing, but it is also fun to try some more of the out-of-the-box grill ideas like barbecued spaghetti. Yes, spaghetti on the grill! There is no shortage of options you can try when you are barbecuing this summer!
Use it Up
What are you going to do with all of that left-over heat after your meal is cooked and plated? Use it, of course! Using the heat from your grill after you have cooked your meal on it can actually help you with a meal for another night. Since your grill could get as hot as 500 °F, it could take a while for it to cool down. You could make a second meal that you can easily heat up for another night! It does not take a long time and can also help save on your energy!
Barbecuing is a great way for families to spend time together and for friends to catch up on what’s happening in their lives. Whether it is the weekend, a holiday, or any night of the week, these tips will make firing up the grill more fun and helpful!
