5-Burner Open Cart LP Gas Grill in Stainless Steel and Black with Side Burner

This week we’ve grilled tri tip and Best Grilled Chicken Thighs on our brand new grill.

My KITCHEN TIP is to double up on the amount of meat when we are grilling, so we have leftovers for meals later in the week.

For instance, we love leftover tri tip for this light summer dinner: Tri Tip Crostini. So good!

How to make Best Grilled Chicken Thighs marinade

This is one of my go-to marinades for grilling. It’s so simple, you won’t believe it.

  1. Just think “3-part” soy sauce (we use coconut aminos to make it gluten free), honey, and water! Optional to add garlic!
  2. Mix together and marinate overnight!

It’s delicious, a work of art!

The DynaGlo 5-Burner

This DynaGlo 5-Burner is brand new at Home Depot, and has a beautiful matte black exterior.

We love the side burner for baked beans (or try this Root Beer Baked Beans recipe), and the wide grilling range for a variety of foods—like chicken and peppers!

Everything fits!
