The Super Bowl Is About More Than Football

The Super Bowl Is About More Than Football

Chances are your favorite NFL team either didn’t make the playoffs. So, like most of the people tuning in to Super Bowl LIII, the outcome of the game is not necessarily the most interesting part of the upcoming festivities. Regardless of whether your team makes it to the big game or not, the Super Bowl is a chance to get together with friends and enjoy incredibly expensive commercials and the most important aspect of all, good food! Your Memphis Wood Fire Grill can help.

Fire Up The MVP of Your Party

The idea of cooking outside this time of year might conjure up images of Bart Starr diving over the goal line to win the Ice Bowl. While it may not be the best time of year to stand over a grill for hours, chatting with friends, the weather should not stop you from enjoying all the delicious foods your Memphis makes possible. Memphis Wood Fire Grills were built for year-round use. The combination of stainless-steel construction, precise temperature control technology and the convenient Memphis Mobile App means that you can smoke, grill, sear and bake no matter what the conditions are like outside.

Just imagine how impressed your friends will be when you check the temperature of your brisket and adjust the remaining cook time from the comfort of your couch. You won’t even miss watching a poodle kick a field goal or a talking goat sell potato chips. You won’t miss any of the game, either.

Big Hits – The Recipes to Wow Your Audience

Once you’ve moved past the stale chips and canned salsa stage of football snacking, you find a bright, flavorful world of possibilities. Here are just a few recipes to help make your Super Bowl Sunday a success:

grilling chicken fingers with pellet grill

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Fingers

One of the benefits of this recipe is that they can be prepped in advance and kept in the fridge until you are ready to grill them. Plus, by adding a few dipping sauces, you can add a variety of flavors with just one dish.

Hot Wings

Honey Ginger Hot Wings

These sweet and slightly spicy wings are sure to be a crowd pleaser. This recipe can be tailored to accommodate those who prefer more sweet and less heat in their wings.

Kickin' Chicken Wings

Kickin’ Chicken Wings

On the other end of the spectrum are these wings which offer the heat (or insane heat, if you like) that many football fans enjoy.

Smokey Meatball

Smokey Meatball Appetizer

Who doesn’t like food on little sticks? Zesty, cheesy, spicy and slightly sweet, don’t be surprised if it takes more than one batch to make it to halftime.

Basted Mushroom on Memphis Grill

Grilled Butter Basted Mushrooms

Mushrooms basted with butter, thyme, garlic and oregano? Yum! This dish requires a little more attention, requiring you to baste every 3 to 4 minutes over the 16-minute grill time. Still, the effort is worth it for this delightful appetizer.

Grilled Smoked Babaganoush Recipe

Smoked Baba Ghanoush

Smoky, garlicky and a hint of lemony brightness make this a vast improvement on the jars of store-bought dip at many Super Bowl parties. With a bowl of this dip and tray of fresh veggies and pita chips, your friends will be glad they came hungry.
