Labor Day is just a few days away, and if there’s ever been a perfect time for grilling out with your family and friends, it’s Labor Day weekend! The weather forecast for Rocky Mount, NC this weekend is clear skies and sunshine– the perfect weather for a cookout!

Before your guests arrive, you can fire up some delicious appetizers to keep them happy while they wait for the main course. We suggest shrimp skewers, chicken wings, bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers. Check out Taste of Home’s website for even more delicious grilled appetizer ideas. 

For the main course, you can’t go wrong with just about any protein. The classic hamburgers and hot dogs are always a crowd-pleaser, and an affordable option especially if you expect a big crowd. If you want to get creative, grill a pork tenderloin, or make some pizzas on the grill. Don’t forget to grill some sides, like fresh ears of corn, to go with your main course.

And, don’t forget about dessert! Did you know that you can even grill your dessert?! This creates a smoky and sweet combo that can’t be beat. Some of our favorite grilled desserts include grilled fruit skewers for something light and fresh, or grilled doughnuts for something more decadent. 

When you’re done with your delicious grilled meal, you can gather around the fire pit for some late night s’mores and ghost stories!
