Barbecuing is a huge part of my summer meal plan. I love to cookout in the afternoon or early evening, and save the house from the additional heat from the oven. To keep from getting stuck in a BBQ recipe rut, I've been testing out some new idea's in the kitchen. The results? Simple and delicious barbecue recipes, perfect for your next family barbecue!

All of our barbecues begin with Kingsford Charcoal. It's the best! It provides the most even heat that I've experienced with charcoal grilling, which means all of my prep efforts in the kitchen won't go to waste!

  4. Mmm, these kebobs look so delish. I would love to try the fruit kebobs as I know everyone in my family would eat them. I have made chicken kebobs before but never have used a homemade BBQ sauce before as I have always marinated the meat instead.
