Recipe: Delicious barbecue recipes for the holiday weekend

Happy Saint-Jean Baptiste everyone! If you're planning an outdoor 'do for today or even any weekend, then check out these delicious barbecue recipes for the holiday weekend.

Skillet nacho dip is easy to make and super satisfying. You can have it as an appetizer or your main course.

For a main dish, try out these bourbon BBQ glazed pork chops, which features a homemade barbecue sauce with a splash of whiskey. Or, this chipotle-maple chicken thigh recipe is juicy, spicy, sticky, and a glorious barbecued chicken, with a rich flavour that doesn't dry the meat out.

Need some salad ideas? Okra & tomato is a yummy and winning combo, and we love this crunchy cauliflower salad too.

For a barbecue side dish, you can't go wrong with grilled Mexican-style street corn - it's served off the cob and comes together easily.

If you have any picky eaters, or a slew of kids, consider prepping some basic grilled pizzas. It’s the easiest, fastest, most fun way to have pizza, we promise!

Cap an amazing al fresco mesl off with a great dessert. Our top picks: strawberry shortcake cheesecake, deep dish skillet brownie, or lemon chiffon naked cake with whipped cream. Ah, what the heck: make all three!
