Summer – with radiant sunshine during the day and warm breezes at night, there is no better time than now to enjoy the great outdoors! Our summer is jam-packed with local trips, and fun excursions that will have us stocking up the cooler and grilling out all season long.

Summer Grilling 101
With the right seasonings, warm weather, and an ice cold drink in your hand – you can pretty much grill anything your heart desires. From savory tenderloins and pulled pork to sweet mangos and pineapples – the varieties are nothing short of mouth-watering. Here are a few options to help you change up your normal grilling routine, or make it easier when you are short on time!
- Eat your fruits and veggies: If you’re looking to expand your grilling horizons from just meat, try tossing your favorite veggies on the iron: artichokes, zucchini and corn work great with a HORMEL® ALWAYS TENDER® Lemon Garlic Pork Loin Filet. If you’re feeling tropical, grill slices of pineapple, mango and apples until lightly browned and pair them with HORMEL® ALWAYS TENDER® Apple Bourbon Pork Tenderloin for a sweeter flavor.
- Weeknight fixing: If you’re short on time – and heating up the grill is not in the cards for dinner – you can still get a quick, yet hearty, fixing during the week with LLOYD’s® barbeque products.
For super simple recipes like this mini BBQ Pizza, try LLOYD’S® Seasoned & Shredded Pork in Original BBQ Sauce that comes in a convenient resealable tub and is perfect for rounding up hectic weeknight meals.
- Choice of side: After cooking your meat and veggies, a complete meal calls for one more delicious side dish. For a quick and easy addition, try classic HORMEL® Homestyle Mashed Potatoes or hearty HORMEL® 4 Cheese Penne Pasta with Broccoli from Hormel® Side Dishes.
