With summer at its peak and Labor Day just around the corner, we thought it was high time we shared some of the exceptional cookout and BBQ recipes our talented roster bloggers have been posting recently. From main dishes to desserts, you’re sure to find plenty of salivation picnic table inspiration below!
Brooklyn Supper – Smoked pork shoulder with molasses BBQ sauce
If you have the means (meaning a charcoal grill, a little space, and neighbors who don’t mind some smoke), this is a good starter recipe. Once you have the basics down, experiment with flavors. The recipe yielded completely delicious hickory-infused pork.
Foodie Fiasco – Kale Guacamole
I adore guacamole. Give me a tub and I’ve got dinner. Sometimes I like to have a little chip with my dip, but it’s honestly just to look civilized.
30 Handmade Days – Mom’s Classic Potato Salad
I struggle with side dishes. Other than salad or bread, I’m stumped for what side to pair with what dish. My Mom made a simple but super good potato salad growing up. It’s the one that I now make for my family.
No Biggie – The best 4 ingredient chicken marinade
Our friends shared this quick marinade with us last Summer, and I have to say…we love it! It is now my go to marinade when it comes to chicken.
Pretty Prudent – Mango Sriracha Popsicles
YES! You can make a sriracha popsicle. In the great history of paletas, mixing spicy and sweet is a grand tradition.
Presley’s Pantry – Cherry Chipotle Pork Ribs
Here is my video showing you exactly how I made my delicious cherry chipotle ribs, from start to finish, using the 2-2-1 method. Oh and can I just say they were the best darn ribs I ever had! Toot, toot (my own horn.)
The Ideal Room – Pasta Salad (in a jar!)
The BBQ season is here! And that means warm summer nights and picnics with delicious food. One of our favorite BBQ dishes is this Pasta Salad.
Crazy for Crust – No Bake Mocha Mud Pie
Call it a chocolate delight, a lush dessert, or a chocolate lasagna; whatever it is it’s absolutely delicious.
Baby Gizmo – Death by Chocolate M&M Magic Bars
These ooey-gooey bars are super easy to make and so deliciously fabulous that I totally recommend you whip up a batch today. Or tomorrow. Or whenever you need something rich and delicious.
I made peppercorn encrusted burgers topped with provolone cheese and they were fantastic! Plank grilling will definitely happen more at our house!
