17 Unique & Delicious Barbecue Recipes

The Summer seems like it is flying by and I feel like I haven’t taken full advantage of the warmer weather just yet. I decided to try out some barbecue recipes before it’s over and they all looked so good, I had to share!

The best thing about all 17 of these recipes is that they aren’t your typical barbecue recipes, they are one of a kind recipes that are so good they may even have you shoveling out your grill to make them in the Winter.

These barbecue recipes are so unique and look delicious!

This Grilled Cilantro Chicken  sounds like a great barbecue recipe to try out this weekend. I may even make this and save some of the leftovers for taco night.

Grilled Nectarines– I have never tried this before but I can’t beleive I hadn’t thought of this, I am going to do this as soon as possible. How cool!


My family hasn’t enjoyed food on a stick as much as we should being that we live in Iowa and they are famous for their state fair which boasts all kinds of food on a stick. I may stay away from the deep fried oreos but this Grilled Chicken Skewers with Mustard Sauce would be a delicious stick food to serve my family.
