We've rounded up a few of our favorite last- minute barbecue recipes and, we decided it would be the ideal theme for this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme). We put the Culinary Content Network and our staff to the test to come up with barbecue recipes, and here are some of the highlights:

  • Theresa from Food Hunter’s Guide shared with us her recipe for a tangy barbecue sauce. It is perfect to smother over chicken, ribs, or pork.
  • Bernadette Martin from Rants from My Crazy Kitchen shared with us her recipe for broccoli and Cheddar pasta salad, which is the perfect side for any outdoor barbecue.
  • The winner this week is Lori Yates from Foxes Love Lemons and her recipe for spicy bacon-wrapped hot dogs with a fresh salsa on top for some crunch and texture. These sound like the perfect indulgence for the long weekend.

So, if you’re in a hurry at the last minute this weekend, try out some of these recipes and enjoy the 4th of July the right way — hassle-free and with a delicious barbecue spread!
