Are you craving the charred taste of classic cheeseburgers, some skin-on hot dogs or a few finger-lickin’ baby back ribs? This holiday weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer and with that comes the start of grilling season. So uncover that barbecue grill in the corner of your garage, drag it outside and fire it up! Whether you’re hosting a backyard cookout or just picnicking with your kids this Memorial Day, whip up the recipes below for a completely grilled meal that will hit all the right notes with you and your family.
To start your great grilling extravaganza, throw a batch of Great Grilled Wings from Food.com on the barbie. Slathered with a sweet and spicy sauce, these chicken wings are two-bite wonders.
For the main event this weekend, try Emeril Lagasse’s succulent Grilled Pork Chops With Garlic Jam from Cooking Channel. Sweet roasted garlic is liberally spooned atop seasoned thick-cut pork chops for a masterful presentation of grilled goodness.
To go with Emeril’s sinfully delicious chops, cook up – grill up, really – Food Network Magazine’s recipe for Tomato-Garlic Corn (pictured above). Sweet corn on the cob is grilled to perfection and covered with a fresh tomato, roasted garlic and herb mixture.
