Let’s Get Grilling!

Maybe not right now in the UK but in Colorado we have glorious summer weather that has us all wanting to be outside, and that includes firing up the barbie (grill) – and with the  imminent start of  ‘The Season’ in the U.K. I hope they’ll get theirs soon!

You may have your favorite way of grilling outdoors but some people are always looking for inspiration, so here are a few of my favorite summer grillables and side dishes from over the years, along with links to each recipe – hopefully this will become your summer ‘go-to’ blog post.

BTW, if you’re a baby-back rib-eater, you’ll need to look elsewhere because I don’t do ribs – that said, I think you’ll find enough here to please everyone.

I’ve also thrown in some perfect outdoorsy summer desserts, so keep scrolling…

…and happy grilling!
