Say Goodbye to Summer with a Labor Day Cookout

Labor Day is traditionally the last great “outdoor” weekend of the year. And while our Weber and Lynx grills are built to be used year-round, there’s really no better time to invite everyone over for a backyard cookout blowout to celebrate the end of summer.

It’s easy to jump to traditional cookout favorites like burgers, hot dogs and chicken when you’re cooking for a crowd. But we encourage you to break out of that boring old box and incorporate some new recipes in your menu, like these:

Appetizers

Grilled Flatbread with Three Toppings

Start things off right with this tasty yet simple appetizer.

Grilled Brie Cheese

Serve this with the above to offer your guests plenty of options.

Main dishes

Baby Back Ribs with Spiced Cider Mop

A crowd-pleaser, with just a hint of fall.

Baja Fish Wraps with Chipotle-Lime Slaw

Bring the flavors of beach home to the mountains.

Portobello Mushroom Sandwiches with Arugula and Balsamic Aioli

Make sure your vegetarian guests are included.

Cabernet Burgers with Rosemary Focaccia

If you really want to serve burgers, kick things up a notch (or 10) with this recipe.

Latin Burger with Caramelized Onion, Jalapeno Relish & Red Pepper Mayonnaise

Or this one.

Grilled Honey Chipotle Chicken Wings

Ditto for chicken. Escape the traditional grilled chicken and try a new flavor profile.

Side Dishes

Brussel Sprouts

Brussel sprouts often inspire … strong feelings. But grilled, they’re delicious.

Asparagus with Sherry-Bacon Vinaigrette

A fresh take on a grilling favorite. Plus, well, BACON.

Grilled Artichokes with Garlic Mayonnaise

Offer something yummy other than baked beans and chips. You know you want to.

Whether you’re celebrating the holiday at the Vail Jazz Party, jumping into fall at Beaver Creek Oktoberfest, or taking in the family fun at Copper Country Fest – there’s still plenty of time to pull your friends and family together for some old-fashioned backyard fun and delicious food! And if you don’t yet have a quality grill, come see us – you’ll be amazed at the difference a good grill can make.
