With summer just around the corner, it’s time to break out your propane barbeque grills and invite your friends over for a cookout. But before you send the invite you’ll want to make sure your propane grill is ready for the summer fun. Before firing up the grill or deciding on a recipe, you’ll want to make sure your grill’s propane tank is working and full. If you need a propane tank refill, enroll in your local propane delivery service in Port St. Lucie, to make sure you’re always ready for a barbeque.
Now that your grill is ready to go, it’s time to decide what you’re going to make. While you could always throw some hot dogs and burgers on the grill, why not impress your guests with one of these awesome grilling recipes this summer instead?
Many times when people think of barbeque grill recipes a very traditional and common flavor profile comes to mind. This typical recipe usually includes some sort of barbeque flavored meat marinade and ends by throwing that protein on the grill. Getting a great and traditional barbeque flavor can take hours of marinating and is generally a slower cooking process. However, the rule of cooking barbeque ‘low and slow’ may not always be conducive with your timeline so trying some other proteins and flavors might be exactly what your grill has been missing.
Chicken is a great protein to throw on the grill. You can pack a lot of flavor into chicken thighs or breasts, without having to cook heavier meats such as pork and beef. Chicken is also great for summer because it is a lighter meat and doesn’t sit like a brick in your stomach. You also do not need to marinate chicken for as long as other meats, although you can if you want to, making it easier for last minute tailgates or cook outs. You can keep it simple with a dry rub of salt, pepper and poultry seasoning or you can get creative by making your own wet or dry rub with fresh spices, fruits and/or sauces. If you are looking for something a bit different try this Grilled Hawaiian Teriyaki Chicken recipe!
When you think of barbeque the first foods that come to mind are usually dark meat, such as steak, ribs or other beef cuts. If you give your guest something a little unexpected, healthier and just as delicious, your barbeque will quickly become a destination event. Throwing some heartier fish, such as salmon or tuna, or even shrimp skewers on the grill can easily elevate your outdoor event without compromising on taste! Cajun style spices are no stranger to the barbeque and actually pair really well with seafood. Trying out this Grilled Cajun Shrimp Skewers recipe is a great way to spice up your barbeque. For salmon, give this Citrus Salsa Salmon recipe a whirl!
Vegetables are commonly overlooked when planning a barbeque. Because they are typically an afterthought, your choice of vegetables at a backyard grill-out is usually limited to one simple salad. Now, there is nothing wrong with a salad but if you’re firing up the grill anyway why not make your vegetable choices more interesting? When you grill your veggies you add a smoky layer of flavor to your vegetables you wouldn’t get if you sautéed or oven roasted them. Next time you are planning a barbeque, experiment a little by throwing these vegetables on the grill:
