Great Recipes to Grill - a roundup of 20+ great recipes for the grill.

With hot weather on the horizon, now is the time to fire up the barbie! By cooking outside, you move the heat of meal prep out of the kitchen, helping your home to stay cool. You also add great flavor to your meals.

We love our grill, despite the fact that it is breaking in spots and the lighter no longer works. It’s a Holland Heritage grill that we bought new off Craigslist five years ago for a hundred bucks. The cooking grid has a few holes in it, but I’m loathe to part with it. I love the small openings of the grid which make it easier to cook small things like vegetables and shrimp. (Except for the part where it’s breaking, of course.)

Anyway, here are some of our favorite recipes that we cook outside:

  1. Drunken Brats and Caramelized Onions
  2. Bratwurst with Sauteed Peppers and Onions
  3. Hot Dog & Sausage Bar
  4. Buffalo Chicken Wraps
  5. Easy Marinated Chicken without a Recipe
  6. Grilled Chicken in Buttermilk-Yogurt Marinade
  7. Grilled Chicken for the Freezer
  8. Salsa Verde Chicken
  9. Spicy Chicken Rub
  10. Grilled Shrimp or Fish Tacos
  11. Warm and Spicy Fish Rub
  12. Turkey Tarragon Burgers with Bleu Cheese and Chipotle Mayonnaise
  13. Cilantro-Chipotle Cheeseburgers
  14. Popeye Burgers with Spinach
  15. Meatloaf on the Grill
  16. Grilled Steak Gyros
  17. Mediterranean Steak Salad
  18. Tri-Tip Sandwiches
  19. Grilled Pizza
  20. Grilled Balsamic Pork Chops
  21. Spice-Rubbed Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Grilling is a great way to cook and add a little vacation atmosphere to your meal, even when you’re just staying home. Making it a weekly tradition for the summer months is a great way to bring zest and routine to your meal planning all at the same time.

    Grilling on the BBQ is something my husband does all year long. We could have snow on the ground and he’ll be out there cooking a steak or some chicken or even hamburgers when we just can’t have any more soup during the cold weather. I often wonder what the neighbors are thinking when they smell something cooking outside in the snow. He loves it. I don’t grill. I cook inside and he cooks outside. I don’t even want to know how because then it might become my job. 🙂 In reality though, he loves it and I really don’t think he would even want me near his BBQ. Aside from cooking just about anything on the grill, we also use our rotissieri quite often. Sometimes if I happen to have a smoked ham in the freezer, we put that on and let me tell you how good that is! That’s how we cooked our Easter ham this year. We also love pork roast, roast beef, and roasting chicken on the rotissieri. It just tastes better than from the oven. On the side of our grill is a large burner so if we’re having a BBQ and I want to make ricotta donuts, I cook them outside where the party is rather than be in the house by myself. So we definitely get a lot of use out of our grill.

  2. We love cooking out (that’s what we call it in NW MO). I have especially loved putting veggies on the grill. Tonight we cooked out hamburgers and I added zucchini, red and green bell peppers, and asparagus. It was all good. Tomorrow night is pizza on the grill and Friday is chicken legs and thighs with BBQ sauce. I can’t wait to try one of your recipes in this post.
