  2. Grilled Vegetable Medley
    Vegetarians and veggie lovers rejoice! A colorful grilled vegetable medley is a must-have for any barbecue. Toss an assortment of bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, and cherry tomatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Grill them until charred and tender for a side dish that bursts with natural sweetness.
  3. Juicy Beef Burgers with Caramelized Onions
    A classic summer favorite, beef burgers are a crowd-pleaser. Create juicy patties using high-quality ground beef – our favourite is local ranch-raised grass-fed beef like from Burke Creek Ranch, seasoned with salt, pepper, and your choice of spices. Grill the patties to your preferred level of doneness, and top them with caramelized onions for an irresistible combination of flavors.
  4. Grilled Shrimp Skewers with Mango Salsa
    Transport your taste buds to the tropics with these delightful shrimp skewers. Marinate large shrimp in a blend of lime juice, garlic, and chili powder before threading them onto skewers and grilling them to perfection. Serve with a vibrant mango salsa for a burst of sweetness and tanginess.
  5. Barbecue Ribs with Homemade Sauce
    No summer barbecue would be complete without finger-licking-good ribs. Slow-cook your ribs until they’re fall-off-the-bone tender, then finish them off on the grill, basting with a homemade barbecue sauce. The result? Sticky, smoky, and utterly delicious ribs that will have everyone coming back for more
  6. Grilled Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter
    Capture the essence of summer with grilled corn on the cob. Peel back the husks, remove the silk, and spread a mixture of butter and fresh herbs onto the corn. Close the husks back up and grill until the kernels are tender and charred, allowing the flavors to meld together beautifully.
