BBQ Party Dinner Bowls - A classic backyard BBQ party, in one bowl! Turn to this quick-fix wholesome recipe for a fresh family dinner this summer! | foxeslovelemons.com

Did you guys know there are 99 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day? It sounds like a lot, but it’s already going by so fast. But in those 99 days, I pretty much plan to eat 99 meals that celebrate fresh ingredients, BBQ, and simple summer recipes.

These BBQ Party Dinner Bowls are my take on everything you find at a backyard BBQ, but simplified, and piled into one bowl. Let me walk you through my thought process on this one. Just go with it, OK? I’ve got some red cabbage that is like a lazy man’s approximation of coleslaw (extra cabbage can be used for corned beef egg rolls).

There’s some pinto beans, that when eaten in combination with the pulled pork sort of remind you of baked beans. There’s sliced mango and cherry tomatoes, which kind of represent the fruit salad / vegetable salad portion of the BBQ buffet table.

There’s grilled corn on the cob, just cut off the cob so I could fit it into this bowl. And no BBQ would be complete without some potato chips and pickle spears, right?

Now, pulled pork might not immediately spring to mind when you think of “simple summer recipes.” It can involve hours in the smoker or slow cooker. Or, you can turn to wholesome Farm Rich Smokehouse Pulled Pork BBQ, and then spend all the time you just saved on meal prep taking a bike ride or reading a book in the backyard.

Farm Rich Smokehouse is a frozen line of real BBQ meats that have been hickory smoked for hours but are ready in just minutes. They contain no artificial ingredients, no gluten, and are made in Tennessee where BBQ was made famous! These meats are perfect for bbq-style family meals.
