The Beauty and Simplicity of the Summer BBQ #TigerClean

Summer is here and so is everything that goes with it. I love being surrounded by the sounds of lawn mowers, birds singing you out of slumber in the mornings, and giggling kids running through sprinklers. The entire scene makes me want to break out the BBQ and raise a glass to warmer weather!

Unlike the other seasons which call for more formal plates and cutlery (with dining at the kitchen table), summer is a time when we are often found balancing a smaller plate on our laps while sitting in lawn chairs or at a picnic table.

In summer we enjoy more fresh salads and in-season fruits. After shopping, I wash my fruit, let a super absorbent Tiger Towel catch the water drippings, and it’s not long thereafter that the tray is empty. We go through a lot of fruit in our household, especially the berries!

It is the time of year that the oven gets used less, and the grill more. Some of my favourite hot foods to make during the summer months are kabobs and skewers, juicy burgers, grilled ribs, and saucy wings.


In other words, bring on the finger foods!

From prep work, to cooking, and then to cleanup – there’s less dishes to do when making summertime meals. Yet, diving into finger foods and the more relaxed meal setting means that messes are more likely to happen. This is especially true when you throw kids into the mix. Pretty soon that wing sauce is literally all over the place!

Yet, that’s the beauty of the season. You simply have Royale® Tiger Towel™ paper towel on hand (at all times), and, when the eating is done, the garden hose is just a few feet away and another section of paper towel is there to help dry off. Why not, right? It’s the season of all things enjoyed outdoors.

I’d say my summer BBQ must-haves are meat, sauce, Royale® Tiger Towels™ paper towels, and a summer-loving smile. I’m all for the ease of cooking and less cleanup. Always.

We even have Royale® Tiger Towel™ paper towel rolls stocked in our trailer, at our summer property at the creek. There, we get our grill on at least twice a day. BBQing out camping is a must, and we often have company join us as well.
