Make your own Halloween BBQ
MONDAY 10.29.2018

It’s time for scary movies and costume parties.

Halloween is the favorite holiday of many: It’s always a fun night of costumes, tricks, and treats. Forget about the spooky aspects of Halloween, let’s focus on the treats: Throw a damn good Halloween BBQ.

This is how.

The menu

Put together a cookout menu that will easily work its way into the crowds. Think less of a sit-down meal, and more of party snacks. Filling snacks, that is: Sliders, hot dogs, armadillo eggs , a spooky meatloaf – or all the above! Make a list of what you want and start prepping.

The treats

Remember the classic caramelized apple? A Halloween BBQ is the perfect opportunity to make other versions of homemade fall treats. Use your grill to roast an apple crisp, or throw some grilled pineapple for a healthy (and delicious) snack option. If you’re grilling for a party, why not throw in some dessert?

The vibe

A costume party is great fun! Treats aside, the real trick is to make pranks and contests. You can build a haunted house, or ask your friend to bring his karaoke machine. The real treat is to see who makes a fool of himself. Who is the best dressed? What will the prize be? It better have to do with BBQ.

The drinks

This is a chance to get spooky. Mix blackberry vodka for darker Cosmopolitans. Buy red wine for classic sangria that will match the bloody vampire-themed night.

And when you have the drinks, the food and the vibe under control, it is time to think of a good costume, which can also be BBQ-inspired. A butcher, for example, is a great DIY easy Halloween costume… But if you will be grilling, you might as well kill two birds with one stone and go as a chef, another easy option.

Outstanding product. In the past I would use 2 fire starters to get the fire going good. However, with the Blazaball I only use 1 fire starter and the fire is ready in no time. So I’m saving money on fire starters. Simply a brilliant product idea. I have two Eggs (small and large) so I had to order a second Blazaball. Why share? 😬

The right smoke

Ax Breaker - in case you’re curious Quebracho translates to Ax Breaker. I’m glad someone broke a few axes on these trees - the charcoal is by far the best I’ve ever used.
You know that acrid smoke that you get from a lot of charcoals? The white smoke that, until you get the temp just right, won’t go away. And if you put the meat on, turn your back for two seconds and then look back - it’s all white again because the temp got too high too fast… This charcoal holds temps really well, so I’ve avoided that acrid smoke on every cook.
5 stars - would buy again. Worth the price.

Love it!

I used to use a propane torch for silver soldering. It was a touch hotter, but requires me to hold the torch close to the flame upside down. I like the handle and holding this torch upright. I’ve used proper torch, BGE lifter blocks, and electric heaters. This torch is the fastest way to light my fire.

This is the BEST charcoal I have used. It lights super quick burns super clean and burns super Long. It burns very hot too. Thank you fogo


This charcoal is hands down the best, it has lasted me months and has great taste and burns hot!
