There are a lot of reasons to love summer: warm weather, beach trips, longer days with gorgeous sunsets and, of course, backyard BBQs with good eats and good people. After all, what would summer be without the iconic smell of the grill wafting through the backyard?
While we hold a special place in our hearts for traditional BBQ fare, we are also in favor of switching things up. That’s why we created our new GH+ exclusive Easy 600-Calorie Summer BBQ Menu full of delicious and creative apps, mains, desserts and cocktails. Mix and match the items on this menu, and you can have a delicious BBQ meal in 600 calories or less. Whether you’re hosting the whole neighborhood this summer or prefer to keep it more intimate with immediate family, our new BBQ menu will have everyone reaching for seconds (and thirds).
Learn how to wow a crowd with a savory grilled corn and ricotta dip or go all out with a meal of peach-bourbon BBQ baby back ribs paired perfectly with prosciutto skewers. Whether you want a fresh salad recipe, a new no-bake dessert to cool you down during hot temps, or an easy grill hack to make sure your food comes out perfectly, this new summer BBQ menu has recipes and kitchen tips galore. Don’t forget to also check out our new grilling guide for extra tips on the best grills, special hacks and additional recipes.
