What’s on the Grill: Memorial Day Edition

Although Memorial Day should be celebrated first and foremost for the sacrifices made by the men and women who gave their lives for our country, it also known by many as the gateway weekend to summer grilling.  A strange dichotomy indeed.

Since I consider grilling a “year round who cares about the weather” activity, Memorial Day is really just another weekend where I enjoy grilling food outdoors.

After an extended vacation last week and lots of grill time, I really don’t have anything special planned.  Shocking, I know.

Instead, I thought I would give a little “What’s on the Grill” round-up of traditional Memorial Day grub to tempt even more people outside this year.

By BBQ, I mean low and slow.  There is nothing better…and I mean nothing, than spending time outside while you are BBQing.  The smells drifting through the air will taunt and entice you for hours.

You can go easy, with ribs:

The End of the Ride


By grilling, I mean hot and fast…on the grill, people, on the grill.

You can go simple with burgers:

Melting in...

You can have fun with brats:

Ribeye Friday-Take 483
Grilled Corn
Flaming Marsh

And most importantly, don’t forget the beer:

Hello weekend,

Here’s to Memorial Day 2009 and a great summer of grilling!
