Now that we’re this far into the summer, a lot of us have probably spent considerable time flipping burgers or rotating shrimp skewers over our backyard BBQ grills. There’s still plenty of warm weather left for outdoor entertaining. So if you’ve exhausted your repertoire and are looking for some new BBQ grill recipes to try, we suggest you check out a few of our favorites.

Marinated Hot Dogs

When choosing a protein to throw on the grill, don’t overlook this picnic staple. You’ll never cook a plain hotdog again after you try this marinated hotdog recipe. Simply cut a few small angled slits down each hot dot, about 1/2 inch apart. Whisk together ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, vegetable oil, and garlic. Marinate the hot dogs in this mixture for 15 to 20 minutes, and cook over direct heat for 3 to 5 minutes. The end result is an elevated classic everyone will enjoy.

Grilled Salmon in Foil

Grilling fish can be intimidating for some, but this salmon grilled in foil is practically fool proof. It has a nice sweet and smoky flavor, and the glaze helps give it a slight crisp on the outside while keeping it juicy on the inside. The salmon is marinated in a mixture of lemon juice, brown sugar, soy sauce, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper. It cooks in 15 to 18 minutes with the lid closed, so it requires little hands-on attention. You can focus all your time on your guests while a side of baked sweet potatoes, the perfect complement to this dish, cooks in the oven.
