This Memorial Day Weekend, don’t try to pack up the entire contents of your refrigerator and your collection of dry rubs. We’ve got the perfect menu featuring a smoked chicken so good you’ll want to kiss it, a slew of five-ingredient sides, and chewy brownies that make fast ice cream sandwiches to please guests from ages 1 to 92.
Make these recipes, and you’ll spend time with family and friends instead of your kitchen.
- Hot Bacon Caprese Salad
- Charred Eggplant with Miso Dressing
- Grilled Mexican Corn Salad
- Zucchini-Potato Casserole
- Mediterranean Green Beans
Step away from the meat case. Stop anguishing over ribs or brisket. This chicken is guaranteed to satisfy any die-hard BBQ fan along with your Aunt Gladys. It comes from our friend Chris Lilly over at Big Bob Gibson BBQ, who just won Memphis in May’s famed BBQ competition an unprecedented fourth time.
You may have heard we’re big fans of cake and pie over here, but we also don’t feel like code-red, five-alarm baking this holiday weekend. So we’ll be making these chewy brownies for sweet and cool ice cream sandwiches that will put a smile on everyone’s face.
