6 Fall Grilling Recipe Ideas to Try Today

Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to pack up your grill. Fall is a great time for grilling, as temperatures are cool, but not too cold. Welcome the new season with these fall grilling recipes.

Pumpkin Rub Ribs

Bring a rack of ribs into the fall season by using pumpkin spice seasoning as the main flavor in the rub. Coat the ribs with a mixture of equal parts pumpkin spice, brown sugar and garlic powder, and then toss on the grill.

Grilled Squash

Cut your favorite winter squash – whether it’s acorn, butternut or delicata squash, into 1/2 inch thick slices. Brush with olive oil and grill for a 3-5 minutes on each side.  Keep flipping the squash on the grill until the squash is soft and grill marks appear.

Pear Skewers

Remove the core from a pear and cut the pear into ¾ in chunks.  Thread a chunk onto a skewer, add a slice of prosciutto and last, a slice of cheese. Repeat until the skewer is full. Grill over indirect heat until the cheese melts a bit, about 10 minutes. Enjoy!

Fall Pizza

Place a 12-inch round of pizza dough directly on the grill rack for a few minutes, then flip. Top the pizza with sauce, cheese and fall vegetables.  (Our favorites are diced sweet potato, squash and kale.) Close the lid and cook until the cheese melts.

Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Cut sweet potatoes into 1 inch thick planks. Brush with olive oil and place on the grill unto tender and browned. Throw a few Rosemary skewers in there for a fantastic flavor!


Bring something new to tailgating parties by grilling sausage instead of hotdogs. You can cook the sausages directly on the grill or place them in an aluminum pan with seasonings such as sauerkraut.
