There is something for just about anyone! Vegetables, meat, fruit, you name it, I have it!

I have rounded up some of my best and most popular grilling recipes and put them all in one place. You can find your entire meal here from your entree, salads and any side dishes with all of these summertime grilling recipes. Bookmark this page because I can bet that you will be coming back to this often!

Grilling Tips:

Learn how to prepare your meat so that you can cook it to perfection and enjoy a perfect meal for all of your summertime grilling recipes!

  • Clean the Grill: Yes, you will want a clean grill before starting. Heat up the grill and then clean it off using a brush or a grill cleaning spray.
  • If the meat sticks: Try not to move your meat around on the grill too often. It is best to leave the meat cooking in one place and then flip it over to finish cooking it through. If the meat is sticking to the grill then leave it and it will unstick after it is finished cooking.
  • Don’t squish the meat: When grilling it is tempting to lay the spatula on top of the meat and squeeze it down to see all the juices run out. Don’t! This is all the fat and juiciness that you need for flavor and cooking.
  • Let it rest: Be patient and let the meat rest before cutting into it. This will help the meat hold tight to all the juiciness in the meat.
  • Cutting meat: When cutting the steak, remember to cut against the grain. The lines in the meat are the direction you want to find and cut opposite of those lines. This will enhance the flavor of the meat and keep it tender.
