Dinner is on the Grill: BBQ Recipes!

Fire up the Grill!

The weather is getting warmer! Warm weather means Barbecue!!! I simply cannot resist these opportunities to just go out on the porch and have some BBQ with your closest pals and family. I love that summer is a time where families and friends can get together more often and spend time outside. Some of my favorite memories are talking around a campfire or just simply sitting outside on the porch listening to stories and making memories with my loved ones. And let’s be honest, I think the best way to make memories together ALWAYS involves some sort of food!

We got our first nice gas grill a few years ago and I love cooking dinner on it, especially when we enjoy great barbecue flavors and the kitchen stays nice and cool. A few of my personal favorites are the grilled carrotscheesy spinach burgers, ribs, garlic herb steak tips and the chipotle kebabs. Yum!

You don’t have to spend a lot to get a good outdoor grill. Shop around for a grill with good ratings and your desired features and power source. Don’t forget to shop Amazon for grills too! Most of the prices are competitive and you get free shipping. None of us like to lug a grill out of the grocery store so might as well get it shipped directly to your home for free.

It will save you loads of money and you will be amazed at how in control you will feel of your life and budget.
