I don’t know how it works where you live, but here in Chicago, cookout season is way too short! So we have to make the most of the season, and to be honest, I’ll grill as long as there is no snow on the grill cover.
We love having guests over for cookouts, and I’m always dreaming up something new to serve. Every so often, my husband will ask for an “old recipe”—one that I’ve made before. I tend to lean toward making new dishes, so I’m happy to oblige and re-create an old favorite. I rounded up my top 25 cookout recipes by course, from appetizers to dessert. Here’s to a long cookout season!
