Sometimes you get a cookbook that you literally want to make every recipe in the cookbook. Every single one. This new Grilling and Campfire Cooking Cookbook is that cookbook for me. So, I had to make April’s grilled barbecue chicken.
Maybe it is because I am obsessed with my Big Green Egg. Or maybe because we had a hard, cold winter. Or the recipes are just that good. The chapters of the cookbook lend to your summer day’s cuisine desire. Whether you are grilling out, looking for a side dish, on a campfire or just looking for a cool crisp salad, you will find it in this cookbook.
April’s Barbecue Chicken
Sizzling Bacon Asparagus
Backyard BBQ Cheddar Burgers
I also made the Lemony Grilled Broccoli and Versatile Grilled Veggies. Both were awesome grilled side dishes.
But, don’t just take my word for it, checkout some of these recipes from a few of my friends.
