3. Lamb chops (4 flavour options): Spring is also the season for delicious tender lamb, and grilling lamb chops is a great way to enjoy their delicate flavour. Rub the chops with our Cluck & Squeal All Purpose Himalayan Seasoned Salt or our Himalayan Montreal and grill over high heat for a few minutes on each side until they're nicely charred. To finish squeeze fresh lemon on the chops while still grilling on each side. To experience rich savory flavour try the Bold Browning without the lemon and just ensure you achieve that crust the Cluck & Squeal Bold Browning is known for.
4. Portobello mushrooms: If you're looking for a spring BBQ vegetarian option, grilled portobello mushrooms are a healthy and easy choice to grill. These meaty mushrooms are delicious when marinated in Cluck & Squeal Rib Formula or Bold Browning, a splash of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, then grilled/smoked over medium heat until tender.
When it comes to BBQing in the spring in Canada, it's important to be prepared for changing weather conditions. Make sure you have a backup plan in case of rain, and be aware of any fire restrictions in your area. And of course, always follow safe grilling practices, such as keeping a fire extinguisher nearby and never leaving your grill unattended. These healthy grilling options are just a few of the many things you can BBQ in the spring, but we. Believe they are some of the easiest and the best. So, get outside, fire up your grill, smoker, charcoal pit or Cardinal Firecooker and enjoy the delicious new flavours of the spring season.
