This summer, are you planning to barbecue at home? If it’s what you’ve always done, it might be time to step up your game! Traditional cookout food is delicious, but it can get a little boring if it’s all you ever do. Fortunately, using pre-cooked ribs for your barbecue at home frees you to experiment with the other dishes on the menu.
- Corn is an old standby, but with some new recipes, you can make it seem new.
- Make it into a salsa, using fresh watermelon.
- Try Jamaican Street Corn, with jerk-spiced curry mayo and coconut.
- If you love avocado, try some Roasted Corn Fiesta Guacamole.
- For a second meat option, try a stuffed burger! Stuffed with things like cheese, onion and bacon, these recipes put all your favorite burger toppings on the inside for a mouthwatering twist.
- Kids craving hot dogs? How you eat them probably indicates where you barbecue at home. In New York, beef hot dogs boiled or griddle-cooked are topped with mustard, sauerkraut and sweet red onions. In Texas, they’re more likely to be topped with chunky salsa, Monterey Jack cheese and sliced jalapeños, while in Tucson toppings are piled on: pinto beans, grilled onions, chopped tomatoes, mayonnaise or sour cream, mustard and salsa verde (tomatillo salsa). Atlantans tend to eat them covered in coleslaw, while in Kansas City they’re sandwiched in sesame-seed buns and topped with sauerkraut and Swiss cheese. Chicago hot dogs are as iconic as they are delicious, grilled and served on a poppy-seed bun, with mustard, chopped white onion, sweet relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices, small hot peppers and celery salt.
- Do baked potatoes bore you? We guarantee these won’t. Spice up your barbecue at home with these Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Baked Potatoes.
