From Alejandra Owens at One Bite At A Time
Hosting a BBQ this weekend? Don’t want to settle for boring hot dogs and regular old burgers? GOOD! I’ve got just the post for you!
You have plenty of time to pick a few recipes from the ones I’ve collected below–all from your very own DC Food Bloggers–and then get to the grocery store.
Don’t be afraid. None of us are so “gourmet” that you can’t make these recipes easily or quickly. Plus, we’ll give you the low-down on any given recipe and throw in a few tips and tricks while we’re at it!
Making a few BBQ standards special will get everyone at your picnic, backyard or roof deck extra excited about your party. What? Don’t you want to be the envy of all your friends?
Have fun grillin’ it up this weekend folks! Share your favorite grill recipes with us in the comments.
