Thanksgiving is about bringing people together and celebrating the season. Everyone has a unique way of celebrating the holidays but no matter how you do it, food is the focus!
This year, why not take the cooking outside and to the grill. Grilling can be a great way to maximize cooking space for the turkey and opens up a whole other realm of recipes.
We decided to embrace the grill by hitting up Home Depot to pick up a Weber Grill and Kingsford Charcoal (the best in the game). Whether new to grilling or a grill master, adding Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquettes to your barbecue supplies is definitely the secret ingredient to any grilled recipe and enhances the flavor of any cooking. Using the highest quality ingredients from Kingsford ensures long burn performance and actually keeps your barbecue going longer, compared to other charcoal brands.
A little known fact, stack the Kingsford charcoal bricks into a pyramid. This allows the bricks to trap in all the heat in the pyramid and get them super hot! Next, add lighter fluid and light with a match. The sure fire grooves in these charcoals have more edges for faster lighting and, the coals heat quickly and are ready to cook on in about 15 minutes. It’s really the perfect charcoal for every grilling occasion. The best part, they come in a 2-pack, so you won’t be running out for charcoal after each grill session.
Once the grill is lit and the briquettes begin to get nice and smokey, it’s time to break down the pyramid and start grilling. P.S.- doesn’t this outdoor cozy set up make you want to keep grilling all season long!
First up, on our Thanksgiving menu are mini grilled artichokes topped with crispy onions and parmesan cheese. If you haven’t grilled artichokes before, now is the time to start! Be sure to brush the tops with olive oil before placing face down on the grill.
Next, butternut squash and rosemary kabobs. Simply add pieces of squash to skewers, and top with a rosemary sprig and brush with olive oil.
Another palate pleaser, rainbow carrots with fresh sage.
Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquettes are made with natural ingredients and real wood to deliver authentic smoky flavor, which gets infused into your food as it grills.
Feel free to keep seasoning as the food cooks. From shakes of sea salt to squeezes of fresh squeezed lemon juice, the more you layer in flavor to enhance the veggies, the better!
Parmesan sprinkles are the perfect topper to artichokes.
Edible flowers sprinkled atop add a burst of color and a creative seasonal touch that elevates the dish to a whole new level!
Balsamic drizzle… always a good idea!
So trust us, pick up Kingsford Original Charcoal Briquettes and turn to the grill this holiday season. Your guests will be seriously impressed!
