Labor Day is the 2nd largest grill holiday in the U.S., which means a lot of you are probably planning some last-hurrah grilling this weekend. Give your final BBQ a special twist with these mouthwatering flavors:

Cedar Smoke + Salmon. Grilling salmon on a cedar plank will take your fish to the next level of flavor – just ask Shanon at The Curvy Carrot! The secret to plank-perfection? Water. Fully submerge and soak the cedar plank in a pan of water for a full hour. This prevents the plank from catching on fire (important!) and perpetuates the smoky effect. Remember, more smoke means more flavor. Check out The Curvy Carrot for the full recipe.

Sriracha, Beer + Chicken. Sriracha can be polarizing: you either don’t like the spice, or you think it belongs on everything you eat. If you’re part of the pro-Sriracha team and like your grilled meals to have a little kick, then you’ll love this drool-inducing Beer and Buttermilk Chicken with Sriricha Glaze recipe from The Beeroness.

Chipotle Cherry Salsa + Steak. Kristen at Iowa Girl Eats hit the nail on the head when she said there’s nothing like biting into a hot and juicy steak taco. And we’re glad she took it one step further and added Chipotle Cherry Salsa – the tartness of the salsa really puts the cherry on top (zing!) of a perfectly prepared piece of steak. Her pictures look almost as good as the Chipotle Cherry Salsa and Steak Tacos recipe tastes. Almost.

Grilled Peaches + Honey. A meal without dessert is like the Super Bowl without a Half-Time Show – it’s missing some sweetness. Before you shut off your grill, throw a few peaches onto the flames. Grilling peaches brings out their natural sugars, which then caramelize from the heat. Yum! This Grilled Peaches and Halloumi with Honey and Coconut recipe from Soni’s Food is the perfect way to end your grilling season with a bang!
