Grill recipes are a mom’s best friend! Not only do they taste great but they’re usually super easy to make. Plus, in our house my hubby does the grilling so it gets me off the hook for dinner! Of course, I still make the side dishes, like these easy baked beans or broccoli salad with craisins, but I’ll take all the help I can get!

What can you cook on the grill

The great part is that there are so many different recipes to choose from! You can make anything from blue cheese burgers to grilled salmon…or just throw on whatever you’ve got left in the fridge. I always love trying new recipes there’s something delish no matter what you’re in the mood for.

  • chicken
  • burgers
  • hot dogs
  • ribs
  • steak
  • fish
  • shrimp
  • veggies
  • fruit

These are just a few but honestly, what CAN’T you grill?

The Big Question: Gas or Charcoal

This is a personal preference but my husband swears by his charcoal grill. We love the extra flavor you get when cooking over charcoal and haven’t been able to replicate it with gas. However, I know people love their gas grills and they definitely ARE more user friendly. In the end, it’s totally up to you. Neither is better…they’re just different.

What is the must-have grill gear

Before you start, there are some things you’ll have to have. If you cook out all the time, you’ve probably got these but if not, this is the list of essentials…

There’s so much more you could add but these are the basics. Scroll to the bottom for more fun grill gear (and grill related gift ideas too).
