Host a Kickass Winter Wonderland Barbecue

Cool Gear Winter Barbecue

Why should Summer get all the barbecue lovin’? Eight months out of the year all of the cooks, foodies, and backyard enthusiasts patiently wait for BBQ season, where the checkered table cloths are weighed down with juicy smoked meats, fresh tomato salads, and sweet summer corn. We’re strong believers in utilizing what’s in season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t create a kickass winter barbecue worthy of competing with the king of summer cookouts; read on, take notes, and start drooling!

Disclaimer: The hungrier we got, the shorter our descriptions – must. eat. food.

Burgers, dawgs, & some kind of wonderful.

Nothing says ‘barbecue’ like a burger; but this time, dress it up a bit with some winter veggies, warm, savory flavors, or skip the traditional beef all together!

  • Grilled Fish with Martha Stewart: Using snapper or sea bass is easier for winter grilling because it doesn’t need to be tended to often. Martha, always the practical one!

Best Supporting Acts

Good side dishes and fresh greens are delicious themselves, but also assist in making the whole meal come together. Use what’s fresh and available at your local market, and substitute as needed!
