There is just something about these top summer recipes that you make on the grill that makes my mouth water. The amazing weather combined with foods that are juicy, tender, and delicious… Well, you can’t beat that! I love that there is such a wide variety of grilling recipes and you can make so many different ones. There are veggies, fruits, and alllll kinds of tender and cooked to perfection meats!

I have rounded up some of my top summer grilling recipes in this post. These are all tried and true recipes that my family absolutely loves! You can mix and match and make so many different meals! In fact, with all of these options, you won’t have a repeat meal all summer long! Although some of these things are so good… I can’t resist having grilled pineapple at least once a week! In fact, take a look and try some of these recipes out! I’m sure that you will find a few that you love and can’t live without too!

Tips for Grilling Delicious Food

To make sure that all of these top summer grilling recipes turn out perfectly, I have put together a few tips for grilling. Follow these and you will be all set for the entire season!

  • Start with a clean grill: The reason that you want to start with a clean grill is because you don’t want to mix old, stuck on food flavors to your delicious and fresh recipe. Clean the grill so that this doesn’t happen!
  • Don’t flatten your meat: I know that its tempting to want to flatten your meat and spread it out as it cooks. But don’t do it! This makes it so that all of the juices go out of your meat and make it dry out. Let it be and only touch it if you have to flip it!
  • Use a meat thermometer: Meats are done cooking at different temperatures. To make sure that you aren’t eating undercooked meat then get a meat thermometer and use it often! There are so many options of different recipes for grilling meat in the summer, just make sure that you are cooking it safely!
  • Let it rest!: If you want the most juicy and tender meat then let it rest! Once it’s finished on the grill, set it aside and don’t cut into it for about 10 minutes. This is actually when the meat is absorbing all of the flavor and juices and is SO important to getting that tender and amazingly delicious meat.
