July is National Grilling Month, and at Sonny’s BBQ, we know a thing or two about cookin’ meat. Whether you’re needin’ a bit of summertime inspiration or you’re just lookin’ for something new, these 5 grilling recipes are easy to follow and sure to satisfy. 


Bourbon Glazed Ribs 



A rack of BBQ ribs never goes out of style. With ingredients like brown sugar, chili powder and maple syrup, this Bourbon Glaze is just the right mix of sweet and savory.  


Brisket Burnt Ends 



Brisket doesn’t have to be boring, especially the Burnt Ends. This recipe is so simple, it only takes three steps to go from glaze to amaze. 


BBQ Chicken Lollipops 



These meaty morsels are fit for any family. We use both our Sonny’s Sweet and Sizzlin’ Sauces to bring these Lollipops to life. Don’t forget the dipping sauce! 


Smoked Armadillo Eggs 



Cheesy, Beefy and Spicy. Those three words perfectly describe these cheese-stuffed jalapenos wrapped in sausage and bacon. These are a staple in Texas, and now, you can try them out for yourself. 


Smoker Barrel Nachos 



This is “nacho” average appetizer. You’re a simple stack away from a melty, meaty and munchable snack that’s sure to get any party started.
