This is not your average Sunday evening. This is Super Bowl Sunday. This is the Christmas of NFL football season. And this Super Bowl Sunday calls for SUPER tasty food.
Whether you’re hosting the party or just bringing a dish to pass, Grilla Grills has got you covered on a meal that will be sure to score big with your guests and fellow party goers. Now, a few things to keep in mind as you prepare:
1. Do as much prep work as you can the night before the game.
‘Twas the night before the Super Bowl and all through the house …
People are getting ready for the big game! Duh! Marinating meats, filling wood pellet hoppers, and stocking up on charcoal are all proactive steps you can take to keep your game day as stress free as possible. It also wouldn’t hurt to have some extra cleaning supplies on hand. If your guests are anything like our friends and family, your furniture is subject to major potential spillage.
2. Make your Super Bowl menu simple, but customizable.
No need to get in over your head when it comes to complex Super Bowl recipes. It can be easy to add variety without going overboard. Decided on chicken wings? Have a few different sauces to choose from. Hamburgers and hot dogs? A build your own bar will do the trick. If you anticipate some vegetarian guests, satisfy everyone with some grilled veggie skewers.
3. Remember snacks on snacks on snacks.
While your grilled dish is likely to be the main attraction, adding the right snacks and sides can be the icing on a perfectly crafted Super Bowl party cake. Chips, salsa, guacamole, and queso are always easy game day staples. You can also impress your guests with a meat and cheese platter or pre-made veggie tray. A good rule of thumb is this: you can never have too many snacks.
4. Get a head count for guests.
Portion sizes can be tricky, especially with an event that could last most of the day. You might be wondering how much food to make. An easy solution would be to get a head count to determine the number of people who will attending, and share that with others who are bringing dishes. Don’t be afraid to accept others’ offers to bring a dish to pass. This will keep your mind at ease about running out of food. And hey, what’s the worst that could happen? You have lots of leftovers. Hello lunch for the week!
5. Don’t stress & enjoy!
Wood pellet grills are especially handy for parties because of their set it and forget it functionality. You don’t want to spend the whole Super Bowl grilling, and with a pellet grill, there’s no need to leave the game mid-play to babysit the grill outside. Take this time to have fun and enjoy the game with your friends and family. Nothing brings people together better than some BBQ and football!

Grilla Grilled Chicken Wings Recipe
Having trouble finding the perfect Super Bowl recipe for your party? This chicken wing recipe is especially delicious with our Grilla Savory Ranch Dip as a dipping sauce for even more flavor.
- 4lbs. fresh chicken wings or drumettes (or your favorite parts)
- 1/4 C baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 bottle Grilla BBQ sauce
- 1 bottle of your favorite hot sauce
- 1 C Grilla AP Rub
Take the chicken wings (or the parts of your choice) and place them in large zip top bag. Add the baking powder and shake well to coat. The baking powder will help crisp the wings on the grill. Let them sit in the bag for about 15 minutes before removing. Remove the wings from the bag and shake off any excess baking powder. Lay them on a large baking sheet. Season generously with the rub. Combine the barbeque sauce with the hot sauce and mix well.
Preheat either your Silverbac, Kong, or Grilla to 300 degrees.
Cook wings until they are done (185 degrees internal temp), turning them often to keep them from burning. Once you remove the wings from the heat, toss them in the sauce. They will stay crispy for several minutes in the sauce.
