Poolside Grilling Ideas

UV PoolsPool Maintenance, Pool Opening

What’s better than a BBQ by the pool? If you answered “nothing”, we would be inclined to agree. Not certain where you should start? We have a couple of poolside grilling ideas to assist you in getting your grilling inspiration flowing.

Baby Artichokes

They are great for more than just fabulous spinach & artichoke dip. Baby artichokes beautifully grill up with a bit of olive oil and a touch of salt, and they appear very impressive, too. So not just will you get to serve up some nutritious and delicious vegetables poolside, you get to impress your guests, as well.

Broccoli & Arugula Salad

It’s technically only half-grilled yet hear us out. Grilling some seasoned broccoli then tossing it with fresh arugula and a dash of balsamic vinaigrette is an early-fall, late-summer treat you actually do not want to miss out on. Completely fresh, with a complex flavor and the proper amount of tang because of the balsamic, as well as lemony-pepper fresh arugula bite. It is a must-try.

Chicken Skewers

It’s a grilling classic, and there isn’t any better time to shake it up with a bit of honey-mustard, fall-like marinades than this season of the year. Break the chicken chunks up with colorful vegetables and you will have yourself an entree that is as appealing as it is delicious, and also easy-to-eat. Exactly what the right poolside meal demands.

Squash & Sweet Potatoes  

Do you know what the best part of fall is? The late season sweet potatoes and squashes. Butternut squash, acorn squash, sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, and even, yes, pumpkin will make for excellent grill companions if you know what you are doing. Every squash is going to require a little different treatment; however, a great grilled sweet potato that is cracked open and stuffed with buffalo chicken then topped with a light drizzle of ranch is the type of game day treat you definitely can get behind as you cheer on your favorite team with your toes dipped inside the cold pool water.

Flatbreads

There is just something about the changing seasons that make us crave carbohydrates, and there are very few better ways to indulge, than to pack a flatbread of fall veggies, cheeses, meats, and olive oil, and toss it onto the grill to accomplish a fabulous char. It might not be a wood-fired oven, yet it is a close second we will take any day.

Burgers: They Still Apply

Burgers might be the quintessential summertime grilling classic, yet we think they deserve their autumn moment in the sun, as well. The great thing about a burger is that it essentially is a blank canvas. It’ll become the thing you choose to pair it with. Try out a turkey burger with arugula and pesto, or bison burger with some chipotle aioli and sharp cheddar. There are hundreds of ways to style it, therefore, lean into the fall-ish ingredients and spices and amp up your burger game within a new way.
