Labor Day is only a few weeks away. We know, summer has gone by too quickly! But the weather is still warm and we have one last holiday weekend to enjoy with friends and family before we go back to the grind of school schedules and other activities. And the best way to celebrate summer’s last hurrah is with a barbecue! Fire up the grill or opt for catering in Milton, MA, from Main Course Market!
Here are four of our favorite must-have foods for your Labor Day BBQ!
Whether you prefer beef or pork, there’s nothing quite like tearing into some ribs covered in barbecue sauce when their fresh off the grill. The perfect combination of sweet, savory, and spicy, ribs deserve their spot on the top of this list. Sure, they’re messy, but that’s part of the fun!
Corn on the Cob
It’s the classic late summer and early fall food. Sweet and delicious, corn on the cob pairs perfectly with whatever you’re grilling. Whether you prefer to grill, boil, or steam it, corn on the cob is always a hit at any Labor Day celebration.
As sides go, potato salad might not be the most exciting, but it’s a consistent staple for a reason. It’s a delicious complement to whatever meat you’re grilling, and it’s easy to put your own spin on it. Do you think it’s a little bland? Add some hot sauce! If that’s a little spicy for you, mix in some dill or other flavorful herbs.
It’s important to always have more than one meat option at a barbecue, and it’s hard to go wrong with chicken wings. Everybody loves chicken wings! You can cook them up plain and toss them in different sauces. Or let them sit in your favorite marinades until you’re ready to cook. You can marinade them for anywhere from a few days to a few hours, depending on how strong you want the flavor to be.
