Classic and Unique BBQ Party Food Ideas

Classic and Unique BBQ Party Food Ideas

May 31, 2022

BBQ is a classic staple in the country, bringing friends and family together. Most of us have fond memories of fun summer backyard parties, enjoying delicious food straight off the grill, and washing it down with soda before moving on to a watermelon slice for dessert.

Staples like burgers, bratwurst, and hot dogs are a must, but this doesn't mean you can't expand your BBQ party food menu repertoire. Even the classic grilling recipes can be punched up a notch with these kick-ass BBQ tips.

Flip Less to Add Flavor to Your Hamburgers

Hamburgers probably top the BBQ party food list, especially because they're one of the easiest fixes for BBQ newbies. The best part is, the less you fuss with the hamburgers, the better they turn out to be! Ask any grill master, and they'll tell you the key to juicy hamburgers is to flip them less and leave them alone until cooked just right.

Bonus Tip: If you really want to add a burst of flavor to your hamburgers, add some smoking oak barrel wood to your cook. Beware, though; it will be so delicious that you'll have a bunch of family and friends asking for more.

Seafood Grilling is a Delicious Choice

The key to cooking seafood on the grill is ensuring it doesn't dry out. Head to the farmers' market to buy a high-quality, fresh piece of fish with the skin still intact. Start grilling the skin side down and make sure you don't forget the other side. Add some pepper crust and subtle salt to maintain its delicate flavor without overwhelming it. To get the best results, ensure the charcoal grill is sizzling hot before you place your seafood on it.

Wow Meatlovers with Delicious Steaks

You can't go wrong with meaty steaks. Add a mouth-watering twist to your backyard bash with juicy T-Bone steaks. While this is a rather expensive route, it also takes more time to cook. Make sure the steak rests up for a few minutes after it comes off the grill. The ideal resting time depends on various factors. Different cuts are likely to give you different textures and flavors. Be sure to kick your steak's flavor off with CampMaid's marinades, hot sauces, marinades, and seasoning rubs.

Grilling isn't just for Carnivores

When throwing a BBQ party, don't forget about your friends and family members who aren't fans of meat. Tantalize their taste buds by throwing vegetables like asparagus and zucchini on the charcoal grill with delicious seasoning. Some people find grilling asparagus a little tricky at first, but the key is to lay the asparagus out perpendicular to the grill grates while ensuring it doesn't get over-grilled. If your grill is perfectly heated, it usually takes 8-10 minutes to get perfectly grilled asparagus.

Don't Forget About Other Crowd Pleasers

Corn on the cob and the good old potato chips are perfect no-muss, no-fuss side dishes for classic BBQ parties. They're popular among both kids and grown-ups. For those with a sweet tooth, you can keep grilled donuts, strawberry shortcakes, and other grillable desserts. If grillable recipes don't sound appealing, churn up something quickly in your cast iron dutch oven set. Plenty of recipes are available for snacks and desserts that everyone can enjoy.

Whether you're a newbie BBQ enthusiast or a pro looking for upgrades, check out the portable charcoal grills available exclusively at CampMaid. You can also stock up on other outdoor cooking essentials and cast-iron grill accessories, such as Dutch Oven Lid Lifter, Dutch oven kickstands, collapsible charcoal chimneys, charcoal holders, and many more things for your Dutch oven toolset.
