All Grilled Thanksgiving

When it comes to grilling, there is no need to feel restricted on the types of foods you can cook. In fact, some non-traditional grilling items gain a new smokey flavor with the addition of a grill. If you’re looking to bring you grilling skills to a new level and try something different this year, try making an all grilled Thanksgiving meal! Taking some of my classic Thanksgiving favorites, I converted my Thanksgiving dinner to an outdoor grilling masterpiece with some friends.
