Seriously, how COOL are these labels? This really caught my eye and I have to thank my friend Katie at Personal Creations for sharing. If you have a few minutes, please check out her post with BBQ Sauce recipes. I haven’t tried the recipes yet, so I can’t speak to those, but I CAN speak to the awesome ideas she shares on bottling your homemade sauce and creating labels for them!
Great summer idea. Great birthday idea. Great idea!
I thought I’d give you a few ideas on some easy grilled recipes you can make for your 4th of July celebrations today. Here is a full meal you can make entirely on your grill – and it’s super easy:
Memphis Sausage & Cheese. It takes 10-15 minutes, only a couple ingredients, cheap and almost impossible to mess up. The instructions are to BURN it! The only problem with this appetizer is that it’s SO good, you’ll have to make sure the rest of the meal measures up.
Grilled French Onion and/or Basic Grilled Corn. Both of these are super easy with minimal ingredients or work needed. The onion can be on the grill for a long time while cooking the rest of your meal. Both of these are great for large amounts. You can fit a ton of both on your grill. (or make the corn in advance, do a couple extra, and turn it into another app – Grilled Salsa)
Turkey Burger Sliders. Again, mass quantities, couldn’t be easier, fast grilling AND pretty darn healthy! Plus, set up a neat little Burger Bar and let your guests have fun putting toppings on their slider.
All said and done, you could get all of the above cooked and served in less than an hour. That leaves you plenty of time to relax and enjoy the party!
Just in time for your Independence Day smoking needs, Smoked BBQ Source has put together an incredible infographic with as much smoking time and temp info than you will ever need. The link and the graphic are below…obviously.
Thanks to my friend, Joe, at Smoked BBQ Source for putting this together and sharing with me. Check it out and enjoy!
One of the themes of my blog has always been – take these recipes and processes and make them your OWN. Tweak. Add heat. Add sweet. Whatever your taste buds prefer.
I recently received this AWESOME feedback from a loyal follower – Gordon – who exemplifies exactly what I’m talking about to extraordinary results! Check this out:
“Hey! I just wanted to say, I’ve been using your award winning BBQ sauce recipe for some time and I’ve gotten nothing but praise over it. I’ve won some internal work BBQ contests for “best sauce” numerous times. I’ve been experimenting a lot using the recipe as a base and making numerous flavor profiles either by replacing ingredients or adding. To this day I’ve made these flavor profiles: Jalapeno, Apple, Maple Bourbon, Peach and most recently, Apple Cherry Habanero. I simply did that by using hard apple cider instead of beer, tart cherry juice instead of soda and added apple butter and cherry preserves. I sautéed some chopped habanero first and ultimately blended the sauce to remove the pepper pieces and make it smooth. Your recipe makes it so easy to swap out ingredients to make different flavor profiles while still keeping the awesome base recipe intact. Thanks for such an awesome recipe!”
How great is that?! Congrats on the awards, Gordon, and keep it up!
