Just because the weather is cooler doesn’t mean it’s time to store away the grill for winter. After all, it’s harvest time, when cooking focuses on some of the heartiest and headiest flavors found in nature.
The smoky flavor of the grill brings out the natural sweetness of seasonal produce like pumpkins and pears, making the autumn grilling season one of the most satisfying and surprising. Whether you’re planning a small family gathering or giving outdoor entertaining one last hurrah, our fall BBQ menu celebrates the taste of the season by giving these traditional foods a new twist.
Start your meal with this simple Grilled Pumpkin, Red Onion, Feta and Pine Nut Salad.
