Memorial Day BBQ Recipes

Memorial Day is almost here and that means it's time to fire up the grill! Whether you're celebrating with family or hosting a big crowd, here's some delicious recipes that will make a memorable party.

Grilled Cheese Wheel

Yes, you read that right. We’re taking a winter favorite and making it summer ready. Your guests will praise your ingenuity and no one will think of grilled cheese the same way again.

  • A wheel of Camembert
  • Olive oil
  • Grilled baguette slices (for serving)
  1. Brush cheese wheel with olive oil.
  2. Grill cheese directly on oiled grates over indirect heat until warmed, about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Serve immediately with grilled baguette slices.
Q Tip: Serve on our Ruffle White Round Platter.

BBQ Whole Chicken

I love to serve a whole chicken during get togethers. It looks really impressive and you satisfy both the white and dark meat lovers. This recipe does take a little bit longer than grilling up chicken breasts, but the result is unbelievably juicy and well worth the wait.

  • 1 whole chicken (4-4 ½ lbs)
  • Salt and pepper
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce of your choice
  1. Set up grill for indirect grilling.
  2. Rinse chicken inside and out and dry thoroughly.
  3. Generously season inside and out with coarse salt and ground pepper.
  4. Lightly oil hot grates.
  5. Place chicken, breast side up, on opposite side of grill from heat. Cover and grill until cooked through, or a thermometer inserted in the thickest part of a thigh registers 160 degrees, about 1 1/2 hours, rotating halfway through cooking (if using a charcoal grill, add a couple of handfuls of charcoal every half hour to maintain heat).
  6. About 15 minutes before chicken is done, brush with 1/2 cup barbecue sauce.
  7. Let chicken rest 20 minutes before carving.
Q Tip: Serve on our Potter Oval Platter in Terracotta.
