Cool fall weather has us thinking about hearty stews and cozy warm drinks. Plus, with school and work back in full swing, we all need some easy fall dinner recipes in our back pocket. These 40 fall dinner recipes have delicious smoky flavor from being cooked over the grill or smoker, and will have you savoring fall produce all season long.
Here at Vindulge, we love to use fresh, in-season produce whenever possible. It has the best flavor, is better for the environment, and often stretches your dollar the furthest. During the fall months, hard fruits like apples, pears, cranberries, and pomegranates are in season. Fall squash varieties include pumpkins, acorn squash, and butternut squash. Root vegetables are also in season, making it the perfect time to smoke beets, carrots, parsnips, onions, white and sweet potatoes. Fall is also peak mushroom season, and you’ll see us adding them to everything from soup to steak.
Come along with me as we dive into all this beautiful fall produce, and turn it into amazing smoke-filled fall dinner recipes. These are the recipes I’ll be serving my family this season.
