Marinating for Flavor

Marinate your vegetables for at least 30 minutes before grilling. Use a mix of olive oil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper to enhance their natural flavors.

Skewered Veggies

For easy grilling, cut the vegetables into even pieces and thread them onto skewers. This also makes for a great presentation.

Grilling Tips

Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. Place the skewers on the grill, turning occasionally, until the vegetables are tender and slightly charred, about 10-15 minutes.

Smoky BBQ Ribs

For tender, flavorful ribs, apply a dry rub of paprika, brown sugar, garlic powder, and cumin. Slow cook them on the grill over indirect heat for 2-3 hours, basting with BBQ sauce during the last 30 minutes.
