While you’re thinking of all of your new year’s resolutions, maybe culinary arts isn’t up there on the top of your list. But with that new grill you got for Christmas, it should be! Whether you use a pellet grill like a Traeger® or Smokin’ Brothers®, a gas/charcoal grill like a Napoleon® or a kamado charcoal style grill like a Big Green Egg®, the recipes are endless. While grilling used to only evoke thoughts of steaks and burgers, you can now effectively use your grill to cook anything from pizzas to cocktails to desserts. Here are the top 5 grill recipes you need to try this year!.
Appetizer To Share
First on our list of grill recipes you need to try this year is an appetizer from Big Green Egg! This beer cheese dip is a must-make for your grill this year. Using items you most likely already have in your pantry, it’s perfect for beginners and seasoned grillers alike. Whip it up in as little as ten minutes for an amazing addition to any meal or party.
Soup of the Day
The second on our list of must-try recipes for your grill comes from Napoleon Grills. This smoked french onion soup uses smoked beef marrow bones, and honestly, do we need to say anything else? Soup is a transformative dish that can be used as an appetizer or main course. Who knew it could be made with your grill?
The Main Attraction
Now that we’ve had our appetizer and our soup du jour, let’s move on to a main attraction. When was the last time you turned down a rack of baby back ribs? This smokin’ baby back ribs recipe comes from Smokin’ Brothers, and the pellet grill will give these ribs an amazing smoky flavor. With only three ingredients, these will be as easy as they are delicious. Smokin’ Brothers has its own line of spices and sauces, which this recipe utilizes, to guarantee spectacular flavor.
A Sweet Treat
This is the point during your dinner where the waitress asks if you’d like to see the dessert menu. YES. Since we know you’ve had a filling dinner up until now, we went easy on you with this recipe for baked Hasselback apples from Traeger. Smoky, buttery apples topped with streusel, and perhaps some ice cream for good measure. You won’t be running to the store for specialty ingredients with this one. A simple, yet delectable dessert smoked right on your Traeger is a surefire way to end your meal on a sweet note.
A Cocktail for Good Measure
Did you know that you can use your grill for happy hour? This smoked barnburner from Traeger will have you believing your pellet grill can in fact do anything you dream up. Using fresh raspberries and creating your own smoked simple syrup, your dinner guests will be pleasantly surprised!
