Hi everyone, I thank our featured foodie Kristy, from Mommy Hates Cooking for this latest post on grilling recipes. Just in time for Labor Day.
As we embark on Labor Day for some of us it’s the end of the grilling season and cookouts. For my family it’s just the beginning. Here in our home state with temperatures nearing over a hundred degrees for months, we are looking forward to fall cookouts as oppose to summer cookouts. Labor Day is the start of our grilling season, because temperatures are more bearable to sit outside, grill and enjoy our family.
I am a meat eater; I love grilled and smoked meat. One of the best smoked meats that I enjoy is brisket; however, sometimes finding recipes for smoked meats and grilled meats are hard to come by.
I have put together a list for you of the best grilling ideas and recipes this season.
- Chopped Brisket: After smoking a brisket, there are typically a lot of leftovers, a good way to utilize brisket is to slice up half of it and chop the rest. This leads on to various options to use it for sandwiches, spuds, and salads.
- Corn Salsa Burgers: A new favorite of mine is mixing up the typical hamburger that has lettuce, cheese, and tomato by creating the Corn Salsa Burgers. It gives a nice crunch to a plain hamburger.
- Grilled Chicken: For those that like to go the healthier route during grilling season, try one of the many grilled chicken recipes that have a burst of flavor.
- Hot Dogs: Hot Dogs show up at most cookouts especially when kids are around. As far as kids are involved you can’t go wrong with these hot dog recipes.
- Grilled Side Dishes: Another great thing about grilling season is the amount of side dishes you can also cook on the grill. These sides are sure to be a crowd pleaser.
Now take this list and a little creativity to make your cookout one of a kind and enjoy the cooler temperatures, friends, and family!
