Prepare for Memorial Day with these delicious barbecue recipes!


Ah, the joys and smells of grilling season. Picture this: the sight of flames elevating to the turn of that perfect cheeseburger or steak. And take a whiff of this: the intoxicating smells of meat as you wrap up a grilling session.

There’s no weekend better suited for grilling than Memorial Day. Although many have already fired up the grill this spring, for others this weekend may be the first time in front of your grill. If the latter is the case, then you’ll want to make sure you have enough propane. Running low? Find a local Ferrellgas location or a Blue Rhino tank near you.

OK, now, to help you celebrate the Memorial Day weekend and prepare you to feed your crew, we’ve provided seven recipes for your viewing pleasure. Our good friends at Blue Rhino are the masters of recipes for grill masters everywhere, so we’re tapping their archives to bring you quality barbecue options for Memorial Day.

So, without further ado, here’s the list:

1. Grilled Shrimp and Apple Skewers

Who doesn’t love a delicious appetizer? Let’s face it. Everyone’s starving while the grill master works their magic on the main course. This shrimp is loaded with flavor that features apples, strawberry jam, honey, and, of course, that juicy irresistible taste of shrimp. After refrigerating the apples and shrimp for 30 minutes, place them onto skewers and then on your preheated gas grill for five minutes per side or until the shrimps are opaque. Finally, enjoy!

2. Easy Chicken Wings

These easy-to-make chicken wings are another delicious precursor to any meal that comes off your grill. These wings are as straightforward as they come. They can be served to your guests in less than an hour with an approximate 15-minute prep time and 30-minute cook time. Enjoy these wings with an appropriate hot sauce catered to your guests’ preference.

3. Patriotic Burger
