We are in full on BBQ Season and I couldn’t be more excited about it.  My entire goal when summer hits is to figure out how to only turn on the stove for one dish at dinner.  Everything else has to be done on the bbq.  That means less dishes for me and more time outside which is a total win-win!  I know I say this all of the time but I love summer!  That is why I am so excited to share these 9 Perfect Backyard BBQ Recipes, so that you can be loving it too!

Backyard Recipes that Perfect for Your BBQ

1. Smoked Sausage Baked Beans

What isn’t to love about these Smoked Sausage Baked Beans?  They can be made ahead and baked as you are grilling.  I have been known to even use the grill to heat them up.  They are flavorful, easy and perfect with whatever you make.
