Throw the Perfect Outdoor Dinner Party for Fall

The harvest season is the perfect time to invite friends and family over for an outdoor dinner party. Nature’s beauty is on full display, with changing leaves and late season flowers in bloom. Temps are cooler, which makes it an ideal time to relax under softer skies and enjoy the last of the warmer weather before winter arrives. Plus, there’s a whole new crop of seasonal produce to feature in special cocktails, side dishes, and entrees. Here’s what you’ll need to throw an outdoor fall dinner party that makes the most of the autumn season.

 


Celebrate Labor Day with Chicken on the Grill

To celebrate Labor Day, we’re throwing some chicken on the grill. After all, there’s nothing quite like the smoky, wood-fired taste of chicken cooked outdoors. With our grills, you get more options. You can throw a juicy chicken breast on the grill or you can opt for our Concealed Heavy Duty Rotisserie System. Our optional rotisserie boasts a fully-integrated motor and can handle up to 100 lbs., making it ideal for backyard BBQs or large family gatherings. In fact, you can cook for a big party easily — without being stuck in front of the grill — because the rotisserie does the work for you. The chain-driven design guarantees consistent, uniform rotation so you can get restaurant or shop-style rotisserie in your very own home.

Of course, once you’ve got your own rotisserie, the possibilities are pretty much endless. That’s why we’re sharing a few of our favorite recipes — for both rotisserie and the grill. Start your grills and start celebrating!


How to Make Beer Can Chicken

The steam from the beer gives the meat a distinctive, delicious flavor while keeping it moist and tender. The can helps, too, keeping the bird from falling over or roasting up unevenly — it’s minimal effort for maximum taste. Of course, you can work up a sweat grilling, so why not pop open a brew while you work? Here’s how easy it is to make this essential summer dish.


How to Get Perfect Sear Marks

Serious grillers know the value of a good sear mark. It’s a mark of quality, a way of showing you know what you’re doing, and we swear it makes whatever you’re cooking up taste just that little bit better.
