Summer Showdown Finale: All-Star Labor Day CookoutAll summer long, you’ve voted for your favorite Food Network Star winners or Chopped judges in head-to-head matchups of their best grill-out dishes. Week after week, it was a tight race, and with the start of September just around the corner, it’s finally time to reveal the Summer Showdown winner …

Team Star! Celebrate their victory with a Labor Day party menu full of mouthwatering recipes from Star alumni, like Guy’s party-ready Grilled Tequila-Lime Flank Steak pictured above.

Pineapple Refresher
Kick things off with icy glasses of Melissa’s Pineapple Rum Refresher and serve Guy’s Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp Skewers for a no-fuss, utensil-free appetizer.

Chicago Hot Dogs
Then set out a family-style feast: Guy’s steak, Jeff’s Chicago Dogs, Aarti’s Street Corn Salad,  Melissa’s Grilled Potato Salad and more.

Grilled Potato Salad
For a sweet finish, make a Summer Showdown favorite — Jeff’s Spiked French Vanilla Malted Milkshakes. Just leave out the liqueur for a family-friendly treat.
