Each of these burgers has a unique flavor that rises way above your typical barbecue burger. Next time you are planning a party, whether it be a simple backyard party, or a corporate event, consider trying out one of these recipes. They can be found online, and will bring the change in taste you have been looking for.

Vegetarian options

Most barbecues are not vegetarian friendly, but there are options available to make it so. Some of the vegetarian options for barbecues might be even more delicious than the meats themselves. There are so many different things that can be grilled. Each one’s flavor is enhanced from the process.

As we near the end of the summer, our gardens are overflowing with more vegetables than we know what to do with them. Instead of wasting them, try using them in as many meals as possible. Grilled yellow squash and zucchini can add the perfect touch to your barbecue meal. It adds an aspect of health, while still bringing with it all the great flavor. To grill them, just add olive oil, crushed garlic, and as much salt and pepper as you want. The taste is incomparable.

Grilled pineapple is becoming more popular to use on burgers and sandwiches. While it is delicious on these, it is also able to stand alone in your barbecue meal. To create the perfect grilled pineapple, use honey and butter to create an irresistible flavor.

The unusual

There are many things that we don’t think of as grilling food that can be cooked quickly and easily outside. Pizza on the grill is one of the best ways to cook pizza. The taste is completely different than when it is cooked on the oven. This variation will give you a fun way to cook outside during the warmer months.

There are many different foods that can be cooked out on the grill. If you are looking to create the perfect company party, or just cooking for a few friends, you can’t go wrong with a barbecue. Choose all the variations of traditional barbecue foods to create the best meal possible.
