5 Grilling Ideas to Try This Spring

Apr 20, 2015 03:36AM ● Published by Family Features

Grilling season is officially here. From juicy, perfectly cooked chicken to boss burgers, these five simple ideas will help deliver epic grilled flavors all season long.

 

Grilling Chicken
  1. Banish dry chicken from the grates - Use the reverse sear grilling method: start with low heat to evenly cook and create maximum juiciness, then turn up the flames for a quick, crispy char.

    Recipe: Sweet Soy Bourbon Chicken

Burger Toppings
  1. Go beyond basic burger toppings - Build a boss burger of epic proportions with unique toppers and condiments like tangy ranchero-infused mayo, mango slaw or grilled avocado.

    Recipe: Vietnamese Banh Mi Burger with Sriracha Mayo, Caribbean Jerk Burger with Mango Slaw, Southwestern Smoky Ranchero Burger with Grilled Avocado

Brunch to the grill
  1. Bring brunch to the grill - Give eggs in toast some smoky flavor by grilling on a cedar plank and sprinkling with Grill Mates Applewood Rub seasoning.

Salt and Pepper
  1. Shake up classic salt and pepper - Create simple grilling salts with citrus peel, smoked spices and even bacon to add big flavor and texture to your beverages and outdoor meals before or after grilling.

    Recipe: Bloody Mary with Applewood Bacon Grilling Salt, Applewood Bacon Grilling Salt, Mojito Lime Grilling Salt

Veggies and Dip
  1. Upgrade veggies and dip - Put a twist on the old standby starters of veggies and dip or cheese and crackers. Grill vegetables and bread to create DIY shareable toasts with toppings like artichoke hearts and hummus or spicy broccoli rabe and fennel.

    Recipe: Grilled Vegetable Antipasto Bruschetta, Grilled Ciabatta with Spicy Broccoli Rabe & Fennel
