When it comes to outdoor gatherings, food is king. We’ve put together a few of our favourite summertime meal tips and recipes. Feed your loved ones well with these tasty grilling menu ideas…

Five of the best summer barbeque grilling tips and recipes

  1. Put it in foil! Turn your grill into an oven with a little aluminum foil and awesome recipes like grilled salmon with lemony asparagus and Tex-Mex black bean salad.
  2. Salt and butter are awesome, but kick your grilled corn on the cob up a notch by wrapping it in bacon, topping with parmesan and pesto, or adding a little buffalo sauce
  3. Tantalize everyone’s taste buds with some side salad recipes like Bacon & Avocado Macaroni Salad, Strawberry Avocado Couscous, and Loaded Pasta Salad. And, don’t forget to keep the bugs away by storing single-servings of side salads in mason jars.
  4. Show your guests who’s grill master with awesome grilled eats like Tabasco Grilled Veggie Skewers, Grilled Sausage & Apple Slaw Subs, Grilled Bone-In Bison Steaks, and Mini Portobello Burgers.
  5. Don’t skip the potatoes! Everyone loves a good potato salad, so keep your guests happy with a Grilled Potato Salad, Baby Red Potato Salad, or a Warm Curried Potato Salad.

Plus, you don’t want to forget having an array of beverage options for all your guests. Did you know that we have a slushy machine for rent? Frozen drinks are fun, versatile, and sure to knock the success of any outdoor gathering out of the park! In fact, here are a few fun summer slushy recipes to get you started.
