Delicious Fall Grilling Ideas to Try Out This Season

Many people associate summer with being the premier time of the year for outdoor grilling. While summertime cookouts are fantastic, there are plenty of fall-flavored grilling recipes that are just as amazing. Even as the evening air gets more crisp, you can still enjoy your grill all season long with these incredible recipe ideas. 

Grilled Chicken Legs

One fall staple grilling item is chicken legs or drumsticks. There are plenty of ways to customize their flavor using different marinades. So whether you want to go with a ginger soy glaze or an Italian herb rub, chicken legs are a super versatile grilling item that you can make for any fall evening. 

If you really want to go all in with the fall flavors, consider bringing the chicken legs in a mixture of apple cider, brown sugar, salt, and spices before grilling. 

Autumn Vegetable Skewers

What better way to enjoy fall harvest vegetables like zucchini, squash, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, and asparagus than making vegetable skewers for the grill? Chop up some of your favorites and place them onto some skewers for easy cooking and serving. Cooking these veggies on the grill rather than on the stove or in the oven adds a more rustic feel and flavor that is perfect for the fall. 

Cheesy Foil Packs

If you want a grilled meal that is just as easy to make as it is delicious, consider making some cheesy foil packs. It’s super easy to prepare this meal, and everyone in your home can customize their meals to be just how they like it. 

This is a great meal idea for a busy night as your kids get back into their school routine, as you can just put the selected ingredients onto some foil, top it with some shredded cheese, cover it up, and place it on the grill for around 20 to 30 minutes until everything is tender and fully cooked through. 

Grilled Pumpkin

If you have a pumpkin sitting around, but you never know how to prepare it in a way that your whole family will love, try grilling it! Cut the pumpkin into wedges, brush with olive oil, and top with autumn spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. Grill the pumpkin until tender, then drizzle the wedges with some honey or maple syrup for some extra sweetness. 

Sausage and Sauerkraut

If you want the ultimate fall comfort food, grill some of your favorite sausages like bratwurst or kielbasa. Then, serve the cooked sausages alongside some warm sauerkraut. The punch of flavors you’ll get from this meal is super homey and makes for a delectable fall meal. 

Grilled Pear Salad

For some lighter fair, you can half some pears and then grill them for a few minutes until they’re soft and have defined grill marks. Slice up the pears, then serve them atop a bed of greens with walnuts, blue cheese, toasted nuts, and balsamic vinaigrette. Add some protein on top if you want to eat the salad as a main course. Or, you can use it as a tasty side dish to accompany the other entrees on this list.
