The only thing more American than grilling and BBQ is baseball. But you can’t eat a baseball, so we’re going to give you three awesome barbecue recipes to help you celebrate National BBQ Day. Whether you’re grilling solo or feeding an entire backyard filled with friends and family, these mouthwatering BBQ recipes are sure to satisfy.
Honey Garlic BBQ Chicken Wings
The great thing about chicken wings is they are actually extremely easy to make. If you’re making BBQ chicken wings, you probably have a lot of people coming over, so get yourself a solid 5 lbs of chicken wings. You can make your sauce from scratch if you like, but we at Supermarket Italy find it much easier to use Walden Farms Honey BBQ Sauce. You can also use Beez Bounty Hot Honey!
Mince 1 ½ teaspoons of garlic to make a honey barbecue and garlic mixture. Lather the chicken wings thoroughly with the mixture. Marinate chicken wings in a baking dish for at least an hour, but preferably overnight.
When you’re ready, pop the wings into an oven that has been preheated to 350 degrees. Flip and turn the wings occasionally to ensure they bake evenly. After about one-and-a-half hours, you’ll have Honey Garlic BBQ Chicken wings that are sure to stun.
Hot BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches
While the instructions for how to make Hot BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches are pretty simple and straightforward, the best pulled pork takes time to make—about eight to 10 hours, The Food Network suggests. Time to whip out your slow cooker.
Take 4 lbs pork shoulder roast and rub it down with Bad Byron’s Butt Rub BBQ Seasoning. Stud the pork roast with 5 or 6 garlic cloves and place in slow cooker. Top with 2 thinly sliced red onions and 2 cups water. Cook in slow cooker between eight and 10 hours.
Remove the pork from the slow cooker and get rid of any excess fat/grease. Once the pork is cool, use your hands to pull the pork apart until shredded.
Put the meat and 16 oz Bone Suckin’ Hot BBQ Sauce back in the slow cooker for an hour or two. Now you’re ready to serve your Hot BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches on the rolls or buns of your choice!
Hickory Smoked BBQ Steak Skewers
We wouldn’t be doing National BBQ Day justice if we didn’t get some grill action going on! Cube sirloin steak and put it into a gallon-sized resealable bag. Pour in enough Walden Farms Hickory Smoked BBQ Sauce to evenly coat the steak pieces. CookingClassy.com recommends letting the steak marinate in the refrigerator between three and six hours.
Once the appropriate amount of time has passed, you’re ready to go! Place the marinated sirloin steak cubes onto wooden skewers and thoroughly cool on oiled grill. If you like, add some sliced vegetables like peppers and onions to your skewer. (Make sure the vegetables are seasoned and oiled before they reach the grill.)
