With spring in the air and summer right around the corner, I couldn’t wait to put my new Char-Broil Commercial Series TRU-Infrared 4-Burner Gas Grill to work!

This grill is packed with awesome features that make grilling so easy, including even distribution of heat, technology that prevents flare-ups and a one-touch surefire electronic ignition. With these features, I feel totally comfortable loading up the grill with several recipes knowing that they’ll each cook perfectly even, and my food will come out extra juicy!

To give you some ideas for how to use this awesome Char-Broil Grill at home, I’ve created my Top 3 Grilling Menu Ideas, starting with the Southern Style BBQ, filled with everything from lemonade (yup, grilled lemonade is a thing!) to bbq chicken, skewers, sides and dessert!

How to Make Your Own Hanging Wall Menu

I had an idea to make my own hanging wall menu after seeing a similar version at a local restaurant. I tend to cook things on the “unique” side and therefore continually get asked by my guests what they’re eating.

Making a menu wall helped to alleviate repetition of the menu throughout the night, as well as give a restaurant feel to the dining area.

You can make your own with 4 items in 4 simple steps!

Supplies Needed

  1. Ikea Bygel 39 ¼” Rail – $3.99
  2. Ikea Bygel Hooks – 10 for $4.95
  3. Ikea RÄCKA 28-47″ Silver Curtain Rod – $.99
  4. Brown 30″ Paper Roll

Steps:

1. Hang the rail on the wall. (app. 6 feet from the floor)

2. Place the roll of paper on the curtain rod and lay on to a flat surface.

4. Place the hooks on to the rail, then hang the curtain rod from the hooks.

After each dinner party, roll that menu down and cut off with scissors, then start fresh for your next party!
