Best Barbecue & Picnic Recipes

SUMMER!! It’s time to enjoy the outdoors, whether you’re into hiking, biking, road trips, or just hanging out with family and friends for backyard BBQs and summer picnics. Here in the US, we have 3 “official” BBQ and Picnic weekends – the 3 long-weekends during summer. The grilling season starts off in May with the Memorial Day weekend, followed by the 4th of July, Independence Day weekend.  This is when everyone gets creative with the Red, White and Blue theme.  Finally, we have the Labor Day weekend at the beginning of September, which marks the end of summer and start of a new school year for the kids. 

So whatever the occasion, long weekend or any weekend, here are some of the Best Barbecue Picnic Recipes that’ll add more magic to your next summer BBQ party!   This is a collection of some of my own family favorites, along with popular recipes from my fellow bloggers.
