Who is ready for summer!?!?! I think by now most of us are. I’m not looking forward to the triple digit temps. But, summer food . . . Yes, I’m ready! And is there a more perfect summertime food than grilled fresh corn? Nope, no there is not. Try this Jalapeño Popper Grilled Corn Salad Recipe for a new fun twist on your summertime favorite!
I favor charcoal barbecues because I love that smoky flavor. With Kingsford Charcoal Briquets I can get my bbq started in no time, ready to cook in 15 minutes. They feature Sure Fire Grooves® to help coals light faster than ever! Kingsford Charcoal delivers the ease and flavor grillers are looking for.
And yes, my bbq has seen better days. It still works great so I keep putting off getting a new one. It does it’s job just like Kingsford does.
I would never claim to be a grill master. So I need charcoal briquets that get started quickly and easily. That is why I use Kingsford Charcoal. Kingsford Match Light® briquets are amazing! They have just enough lighter fluid so that your bbq can be lit with a single match. I usually buy Kingsford Match Light® but this 15lb bag of Kingsford Original was on sale for $5 bucks at Walmart. What a steal! And I was able to get the rest of my Bbq supplies at a great price. Walmart has everything I needed to throw the perfect summer bbq from ingredients, to Glad Press’n Seal and Kingsford Charcoal.
Once your bbq is lit and ready it is time to get your corn on the grill. Simply remove the silk strands from the corn, slather with olive oil, wrap in foil and grill.
Open the foil for the last couple minutes of grill time to get that smoky flavor. If you enjoy a nice char on your corn you can transfer to the grill instead.
This is a great bbq side dish because it can be made ahead of time or right before the meat goes on the grill. Just prep all the ingredients and once the grilled corn cools, remove the kernels and add to the bowl.
That is my tip for the perfect summer barbecue . . . keep it simple. Choose one or two easy side dishes, serve fresh fruit and a couple meat options.
At my house we like to serve this corn salad, biscuits, fresh watermelon, hot dogs and steak. And don’t forget the popsicles for dessert!
With a low key bbq everyone can sit down and enjoy the summer fun!
Another bbq necessity is Glad Press‘n Seal. Use it to keep food fresh and protected from insects. Then pack up the bbq leftovers with the unique gripping texture that tightly seals to almost any surface.
In my house it is a necessity year round!
