With the weather heating up and Memorial Day on the horizon, it’s no surprise that May is National Barbeque Month. And there’s certainly no better way to enjoy this month-long celebration of cooking over the open flame than on the road or at the campsite in your RV. Follow these simple National Barbeque Month ideas to kick off the outdoor-cooking season with a bang.
Arrange a Barbeque Potluck
Whether you’re at home or at a campground, arranging a barbeque potluck can be an ideal way to get to know your neighbors and spend some time outside. Or if you haven’t taken your RV on the first adventure of the season yet, plan a potluck at a campground or beach nearby, so you and your fellow RV enthusiasts can meet up and enjoy a meal. Don’t forget to designate entrees, sides, deserts and drinks to different attendees, so you don’t end up with an overload of hamburgers and hot dogs.
Grill Your Lunch
We often think of barbecuing as something that’s only done at dinner time and social gatherings, but it’s just as easy to fire up the grill and cook lunch as it is dinner. For a healthy lunch alternative, try all-vegetable kabobs with fresh vegetables from a nearby farmer’s market.
Make a Barbeque Cook Book
Next time you get together with your friends and family for a barbeque, ask everyone to bring a special barbeque recipe. Compile everyone’s recipes into one, awesome barbeque cookbook that will help everyone remember National Barbeque Month for years to come.
Teach Someone How to Barbeque
Have a teenager who hasn’t acquired many cooking skills yet? Now is the perfect time to teach him or her how to barbeque. For an extra special experience, research barbeque recipes and let him or her pick one they want to make. Gather all of the ingredients and cook the meal outside together.
