Three day weekends call for one thing: throwing food on the grill. This MLK day, we’re celebrating peace, love, and bringing people together with food that everyone will enjoy (plus staying warm as you fire up that BBQ!). What are we cooking on this weekend? Our Alfresco LXE Series is perfect for preparing a variety of food, with the unparalleled control and flexibility of this deluxe grill.  


Mix things up this holiday weekend with some of our favorite BBQ treats that will please the whole crowd:


  • Kabobs — Fun, easy, and can be made in a variety of ways. These are a great way to ensure that everyone will get their fair share of smokey meat and veggies, with the added convenience of being on a skewer. Plus, the options are endless! You can’t go wrong with shrimp, chicken, pork or beef.

  • Grilled Sweet Potatoes — Oh yes. Cut your sweet potatoes into wedges and toss in olive oil before throwing them on the grill for about 4 minutes on each side. It’s as simple (and sweet) as that. These will make the perfect side dish for any entree you’re preparing this weekend, and they’re fan favorites.

  • Portobello Sliders — These mini burgers will satisfy your vegetarian guests without leaving them out of the grilling fun. But be warned: this delicious option will please meat-eaters alike, so prepare enough for your whole party! Check out our favorite recipe for these tasty mini burgers here.

  • Rib Eye Steak — A classic. Pair your favorite cut of meat with a special sauce to spice things up. Try a Fennel-Orange Gremolata or a tangy Chimichurri for a Argentinian twist on your traditional American BBQ.


With so many easy options, we’re sure your guests will leave satisfied. Remember, it’s still pretty chilly out there, so make sure your set-up is equipped with one of our premium fire pits and heaters to keep your friends and family warm. You can pick up all of your last minute BBQ supplies at any of our BBQ Island locations. Have a fun and safe holiday weekend, folks!
