It’s April, and the Farmer’s Almanac assures us that winter has to let go one of these days. Green grass, sunshine and all-around beautiful days will soon be here. That means picnic season is upon us. Your Memphis Wood Fire Grill can help you whip up a picnic basket that will impress more than just the ants.
Grilling, Smoking and Baking for Your Picnic
Some recipes are better than others when it comes to packing the perfect picnic basket. It’s hard to beat a rack of ribs or smoked pork chops when you’re able to eat them hot at the table. Those dishes are a little less perfect when sitting on a blanket with your family. What you need are recipes that can travel well, clean up easily, and that don’t lose their luster for having ridden in the backseat of your car on the way out to the perfect picnic spot.
Here are a few recommendations for how to put your Memphis Wood Fire Grill to use in making a marvelous day at the park:
This appetizer is perfect for several reasons. First of all, it’s delicious. A little sweet, a little salty, juicy with just a hint of crunch, each bite is an amazing flavor sensation. Secondly, it’s a perfect picnic food because it comes on a toothpick. It’s clean and easy to eat.
Potato salad is classic picnic fare. But why not try a classic with a serious twist? Huancaina sauce is made with queso blanco, rather than ordinary mayonnaise-based potato salads. It also has Peruvian yellow chiles and turmeric for taste, unlike anything you’ve tried before.
The beauty of sliders is that your picnic crew can put them together on the spot, using as much or as little as they feel like in the moment. This recipe delivers an amazingly flavorful pulled pork experience. The slaw adds a deliciously fresh and snappy bite to the rich juicy pork.
Apples, sugar, cinnamon, butter and a light, flaky crust? That can’t possibly go wrong. As desserts go, this one is delicious and easy to eat—the perfect combination for a sweet treat at the end of a picnic.
Perfect for Dates or Family Outings
Picnic food does not have to be boring. With the right preparation and a Memphis Wood Fire Grill, you can create a meal to remember even while you enjoy eating under a wide-open sky.
