If you’re planning a summer barbecue, but don’t want to spend a lot of money on expensive meats, here are three inexpensive choices that will be just as good on the grill.
Thick Cut Pork Chops
When you’re looking for great taste and budget friendly meat, thick cut pork chops are the way to go. They are perfect for grilling and look great on the table. Some people are afraid to cook pork chops because they can dry out, but if you brine them first, you’ll have great success. Brush some barbecue sauce on them before and during grilling for a great tasting meal.
Chicken wings and breasts are very popular, however, that means they are more expensive than other cuts. Purchasing a pack of thighs, or quarters is much more cost effective. Experts also agree that thighs are actually more flavorful than any other cut. Grilled chicken thighs are great for sandwiches, salad toppings, or as the main dish are your cookout.
The holidays are a popular time for turkey, but buying your bird off season will save you a lot of money. Grilling a turkey gives you a crispy skin and great flavor. Prepare it just like you would on Thanksgiving, and put it on the grill. No one expects a grilled turkey as your dinner centerpiece, so if you want to impress your friends and family, throw that bird on the grill.
