Graduate to the Next Level of Outdoor Cooking!

The last few months of the school year are winding down. For some, it means the end of one chapter of life and the beginning of the next. High school and college graduations are important milestones. Many people take the opportunity to gather family and friends to celebrate these achievements.

While graduation parties are (hopefully) a lot of fun, they can also be stressful. Feeding a large crowd takes preparation. It can also be shockingly expensive. With the help of your Memphis Wood Fire Grill, you can please your guests without having to break the bank.

Oh, The Dishes You’ll Prepare!

Here are a few recipes that can help you pull off the perfect graduation gala.

Smokey Meatball

Smokey Meatball Appetizer

Meatballs are excellent for entertaining. There’s nothing like an appetizer on a stick when it comes to pleasing mingling party guests. These delicious meatballs have a little more bite than an ordinary meatball but are still mild enough to serve to a large group. They can also be prepared in advance and reheated to fit the demands of a longer graduation party.

Memphis Grills Chicken Wings

(Not A Deep Fried) Memphis Grills Chicken Wing

This recipe is easy to prepare. The wings can be combined with a range of dipping sauces or served naked to fit almost any palate. They deliver a lot of flavor without breaking the bank.

Grilling Chicken Sausage Rolls

Chicken Sausage Rolls

As finger foods go, this is definitely a healthier option than you traditionally see. Packed with flavor, these rolls use ground chicken instead of beef or pork sausage. The result is less greasy but just as delicious.

Tri Tip Fajitas

Tri-Tip Fajitas

Tri-tip steak is an excellent cut of meat. It is tender and rich but comes with a smaller price tag than many similar cuts. A 3-5 tri-tip can be smoked for an hour and then cooked on the direct flame to yield a tender, juicy delicious piece of meat. Served with fajita vegetables on a grilled tortilla, you’ve got a dish that sure to please the crowd.

Memphis Grills Brownies
