Ultimate Backyard BBQ Menu

Jump to Recipe

I refuse to believe that it’s August and there are only a few more weeks of summer. REFUSE. I’m not okay with it. I will continue to live in my California girl bubble where summer lasts all year and flip flops are always encouraged. That’s just how it’s going to go down!

That means Backyard BBQ’s are a weekly occurrence and an excuse to invite all your friends over for a little bash. We’ve had multiple BBQ’s every summer for the past 4 years and I’ve got the Backyard BBQ Menu down to a science. Are you ready for this! You’ll be armed with the perfect recipes for the rest of your summer par-tays and EVERYTHING is done on the grill! (except for a few desserts!)

Step 1: Main Course. Pick a protein and then work the rest of your menu around it!

Step 4: Drinks!

Palm Breeze, a tropical sparkling alcohol spritz, is naturally my go-to for the summer months since it’s so flavorful and bright and refreshing!! Grab both flavors and put them in a giant bucket of ice and your backyard fiesta is ready for guests!
