Labor Day BBQ Recipes that are Quick and Affordable


A three-day weekend and the unofficial end of summer are both good reasons to have a big cookout, and we're going all out this Labor Day Weekend. For you to try, we've gathered some of our favourite recipes. Continue reading for those recipes, as well as more Labor Day barbeque foods.


Recipes to Try Out for the Weekend


#1. Grilled Chicken Wings

Burger patties, ribs, and hot dogs are commonly thought of when grilling. Chicken wings are a less popular protein alternative, but once you try them, you'll want to include them in your protein options.

These grilled chicken wings are out of this world and sure to make your BBQ party standout.  These wings are overflowing with flavour after 4 hours of marinating in olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, paprika, coriander, turmeric, nutmeg, and cumin. Grilling them instead of frying them gives them an additional charred, and smoky flavour.


#2. Fall off the Bone Ribs

Without fall-off-the-bone ribs, this list of summer recipes would be incomplete! For a good reason, they're the most anticipated meat at a BBQ. The flesh on these ribs is so delicate that it virtually melts in your mouth. It’s flavorsome and nothing like you’ve ever had. These ribs will disappear in a heartbeat, glazed with a homemade sauce composed of ketchup, BBQ sauce, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce.


#3. Grilled Cheese Hot Dogs

Hot dogs, like burgers and ribs, are synonymous with barbecue gatherings. This recipe is unbeatable if you enjoy the mix of smoky, grilled hot dogs and melty cheese. Guaranteed success: hot dog, bread, cheese, and bacon. This combo is impossible to go wrong with.

These hotdogs won't last long with two kinds of cheese and crispy bacon. I wouldn't be surprised if these were the first to vanish during your outdoor bash!


#4. Grilled Pizza

This extra-special grilled pizza will have no one saying no. Whether you make the crust from scratch or buy it, grilling it enhances the flavour and texture. With its perfect crunch and smoky burn, the dough alone is wonderful. It will be your new party favourite, smothered with sauce, cheese, and your favourite toppings.


#5. Grilled Garlic Cajun Shrimp Skewers

Threaded on skewers, sweet and plump shrimp are drizzled with a Cajun and garlic sauce and cooked to perfection. Isn't that incredible? The sweet shrimp meat contrasts beautifully with the robust flavours of Cajun and garlic.

Pro-tip :  Here's a tip if this is your first time working with shrimp. They only need to be grilled for 2 minutes on each side to achieve the ideal texture: soft but snappy, not tough or rubbery.


#6. BBQ Baked Beans

A rich, sweet, and smoky BBQ sauce coats soft and starchy beans and delicious ground meat. It's the ideal BBQ side dish because of the balance of flavours and textures. It's also substantial, so it adds extra flavour and fullness to any dish.

Unlike other dishes that require hours of preparation, this one simply only 40 minutes. That said, don't wait for a special occasion to make these!


#7. Grilled Rancho Potatoes

You seldom come across great dishes that only require five, much alone three, ingredients. These grilled ranch potato skewers are absolutely unique. How amazing is it that such simple ingredients like potatoes, ranch seasoning, and olive oil can produce such a delicious treat? Aside from the flavour, the texture of the potatoes is to die for: fork-tender with a mildly crispy outer crust.


#8. Grilled Salmon

The list is topped off with a 15-minute grilled salmon meal that is hearty, healthful, and tasty. Your salmon will be indisputably wonderful when drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with a rub of salt, garlic powder, dried parsley, basil, and minced onion. It's definitely worthy of a special event, but it's so simple to make that you can make it any day of the week! It's an excellent complement to your weekly menu.


To Sum Up

Everyone anticipates Labor Day weekend, which signals the conclusion of summer fun, poolside grilling, and a commemoration of National Work Day. It's time to unwind, relax, and enjoy your favourite activity with family and friends while cooking up some simple BBQ dishes.
