Down Home Barbecues — A Summertime Tradition

Nothing says summer like a excellent ancient down home barbecue. Just the thought of one brings back fond memories of smelling burgers on the grill, chasing after lightning bugs and a fantastic fireworks show. What would summertime be without a bag of Kingsford charcoal and some potato salad? Barbecues give everyone a reason to invite their family members and neighbors over for a day of games and activities. Some of these activities include croquet, badminton, horseshoes and maybe a not so friendly game of tag football. Whatever activities are chosen for the day, it is guaranteed that memories will be made and shared for years to come!

To make your barbecue a successful one, you should include foods that are readily available in the summertime such as fresh fruit salads. Vegetable trays are also a perfect addition when enhanced by various dips for quick munching. To keep your cold foods from spoiling (especially salads that have mayonnaise as an ingredient), it is always a excellent thought to keep them under cover and place their container in ice.

When plotting the menu for your barbecue, be sure to have the usual fare such as hot dogs and hamburgers but also add a “not so traditional” food item into the mix. One fantastic thought is to have chicken shish kabobs which are incredibly simple to make by cutting boneless chicken breasts into cubes and skewering them with green peppers, red peppers, whole mushrooms and fresh cut onion chunks. Grill until the juice from the chicken runs clear and there is small to no pink in the middle. Remember that the hotter the grill and quicker you cook the chicken, the juicier it will be.

Another fantastic addition to your “not so traditional” menu is grilled peaches. (This one is really a right barbecue staple for our family.) We simply pick the peaches off of our backyard peach tree and cut them in half. Cut the peaches in half and remove the pit. Then dunk the peaches in a mix of 1/4 cup Italian dressing and 4 tbsp of honey. Grill the peaches for approximately six minutes on each side and top with a small whipped cream.

Complete your summertime barbecue menu with a sumptuous strawberry shortcake or a customary gelatin mold filled with fresh melon. Most of all, whatever you do… relax and delight in the bone idle days of summer with your friends and family.
