It’s Memorial Day Weekend Grillin’ Time!

Memorial Day is upon us. The extended holiday weekend is the unofficial start to summer and grilling season. Clean off the patio, fire up the grill and have a barbeque while remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving our country. As always, Oliver’s Market is your one stop shop to pick up everything you will need for your Memorial Day Weekend barbeque, as well as for all those barbeques to come this summer.

Pick up some Coleman Natural St. Louis Style Pork Ribs, which are featured for $3.99 a pound this week. St. Louis Style means that they come from the belly of the pig, but have been trimmed a bit further, containing no breastbone, cartilage or tips. They’re the perfect ribs for backyard grilling. They can be cooked over hot, direct heat alongside your burgers and steaks. Start them over high heat, grilling them a minute or two on each side, then move them to a part of the grill with low to moderate heat, turning them every so often for 10-15 minutes. Sauce them towards the end of cook time, or after you have removed them from the grill.

Don’t think that the grill is just for meats. We have California grown White Corn this week for 49 cents each, and they grill up beautifully. There are a few different ways to grill up your corn on the cob. Some people like to leave the husk on while grilling. Another way is to remove the husk and wrap the ears in aluminum foil, which helps to steam the corn a little bit. You can also grill them by removing the husk, brush them lightly with oil or butter, and place them directly on the grill, turning them frequently. No matter how you do it, they’re sure to taste delicious!

No Memorial Day barbeque would be complete without burgers. A burger isn’t just about the meat; the buns and what you build your burger with are also important. The Bakerly Brioche hamburger buns, $3.99 for a pack of 4, are a great base for your burger. Fresh greens always make a nice addition but step away from the ho-hum standard green lettuce. Instead, pick up some fresh Arugula. It will add a nice pop of zesty, peppery flavor. If topping your burger with cheese (and who doesn’t love a good cheeseburger?), look no further than our Gourmet Cheese Department. They’re sure to have the perfect cheese that will add that extra punch of flavor to your burger.

If a barbeque is on your list for the weekend, but you don’t have the time to do the grilling yourself, we’ve got that covered too. Our grills will be sizzling away in front of all four stores from 11-7:30 PM with all your favorite meats, seafood and sides. All our meats are prepared in one of our Oliver’s Own spice rubs including Rub Potion #9 or Mesquite, or in our Oliver’s Own Citrus marinade or BBQ sauce. Other items available hot off the grill include a BBQ tri-tip sandwich, a salmon fillet with garlic butter, BBQ oysters, corn on the cob and even a pulled chicken sandwich. That’s right; we have everything you need for the perfect Memorial Day barbeque meal, when you don’t have time to do the grilling yourself.

No barbeque would be complete without a beverage or two to accompany your meal. Ballast Point Sculpin IPA 6 packs are $10.99+CRV this week. This hoppy IPA is a full-bodied beer with notes of apricot, peach, mango and lemon. It is versatile and will pair with almost anything at your barbeque. Your grilled meats scream for a full-bodied, red wine and the 2016 Les Vignes de Bila Haut Cotes du Rousillon for $10.99 a bottle is just the one. The wine shows elements of black cherry and black raspberry, along with notes of black licorice and cassis. It’s a perfect match for whatever comes off the grill.

No matter what your needs are this holiday weekend, we here at Oliver’s Market have you covered. We wish you all a safe Memorial Day Weekend.
