Our Favorite Fall Grilling Recipes

The transition from summer to fall is one that ushers in a season of comfort as we begin approaching cooler months and a more relaxed atmosphere. Another benefit? We’re finally in a season where it’s not too hot to tackle some of our favorite recipes! If you’re itching to get back in the indoor or outdoor kitchen, here are some of our favorite fall grilling recipes that you should break out for friends and family. 

Smoked Pulled Pork

Pulled pork is a popular dish for a reason. Nothing can beat a tender cut of meat that falls apart at the touch. Put it on a bun with some coleslaw with another smoked dish like smoked mac and cheese and you have yourself the perfect comfort meal! 

All you need to grill the perfect pork butt is the right smoker (you can choose a smart smoker or something more traditional like a smoker grill), some hickory wood chips, and plenty of time in the day to spritz and monitor your pork. We recommend marinating your pork 8-12 hours ahead of time to really lock in the best flavors, too. Consider marinades that contain apple cider vinegar or a touch of white vinegar, as both act to tenderize the meat ahead of time. Garlic, shallots, and parsley are also great additions to a marinade for pork.

If you’re looking for great fall grilling recipes, pulled pork is definitely one of the first dishes you should try!

Pellet Grill Smoked Ham

Grilling in the fall means being able to tackle a lot of dishes that are seasonal favorites, like ham. One such great recipe is a pellet grill smoked ham. Smoked ham soaks up many amazing flavors that are unique from what you’re able to do in a traditional oven.

For example, using a maple-apple glaze on your ham and incorporating maple BBQ wood pellets into your pellet grill is sure to take your ham to the next level! With additional fall grilling recipes like twice-baked potatoes and grilled asparagus, you have the perfect fall dinner for any occasion.

Grilled Burgers and Fries for Labor Day

Certain holidays in the fall inspire more traditional fall BBQ ideas, such as Labor Day. Consider going with something simple yet delicious like grilled burgers and fries. Even within this basic dish, there are plenty of amazing fall grilling recipes that you can choose to use to mix things up. Whether this means a jammy bacon burger or steak fries that you throw right on your charcoal grill, there are plenty of awesome combinations to serve the perfect dinner up for your long weekend celebrations.

Rotisserie Turkey for Thanksgiving

When it comes to certain holidays like Thanksgiving, many families have their own fall grilling recipes that may be traditional for their families. Make a new tradition by exploring new recipes and ways of cooking! Although turkeys cooked in the oven or the air fryer are certainly popular these days, you may wish to branch out and try something like cooking your turkey on your rotisserie grill

Throw my turkey on a rotisserie grill?! Yes! Even though it is a much different way of cooking your turkey than most are accustomed to, it offers a far juicier result that’s more satisfying for everyone at the kitchen table. Even better, those juices that you collect will make a delectable gravy, and you may still have plenty of room on the table for other fall grilling recipes like a barbecued stuffing dish. When you think outside the box while grilling in the fall, you’ll be surprised by what you receive!

Roast and Grill Your Pumpkin Recipes Right on the Grill

We’ve covered numerous novel recipes in this guide, and we’re going to surprise you with one last one that few may know. Are you someone who likes to make pumpkin-based treats in the fall, either with the ingredients that you have from your jack-o-lanterns or from store-based ingredients? If so, some of the best fall BBQ ideas can be found on the grill!

Far from spooky, choosing to grill your pumpkin pies or pecan pies (or, why not both?) can produce a deliciously roasted end product that you and your guests are sure to love. Just pop them into a grill known for its heat retention like the Kamado grill and bake your pies to perfection. 

Some other fall grilling recipes that are worth pursuing for occasions like Halloween are grill- roasted pumpkin seeds. Unlike when you cook them in the oven, you can add wood chips or pellets to imbue every seed with a special flavor. Why stick to the oven where there are so many novel experiences waiting for you on your grill?
