Summer Cookout Tips

At our Miami, FL apartments, we have amazing community amenities that residents can use to throw a cookout for friends and family. Here are a few tips on how to throw a fun cookout at The Park at Kendall.

#1 Amenities

The Park at Kendall’s community has an amazing tropical ambiance, creating the perfect setting for a summer cookout. Utilize our outdoor grilling courtyard to make a culinary masterpiece to share, like kababs, steaks, hotdogs, hamburgers, and grilled veggies. Enjoy the meal under the picturesque veranda or poolside cabanas with family and friends. It’s easy to make your cookout a pool party at our resort-style swimming pool!

#2 Flavor

If you want to be a true grill master, you need to know some basic “rules” for flavorful foods. Always have two different proteins – fish and chicken or chicken and beef. Marinate the meat the night before in the fridge. Use this simple and classic recipe, which can marinate up to 1 pound of meat:

  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp sea salt

In addition to the marinade, you’ll want to have BBQ sauce. Make your own with these ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons pimentón (smoked Spanish paprika)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper

Simply combine all the ingredients and simmer over medium heat in a small saucepan for 5 minutes.

#3 Games

It’s not a barbecue without some games. Purchase a bocce ball set for only $33 on Amazon. Another good game for all ages is cornhole. This cornhole set is portable and even lights up! You may be hesitant to play horseshoe due to their heavyweight, but this kid-friendly horseshoe game set is made of plastic. Gather your favorite outdoor games or check out our outdoor billiards table and find something fun that everyone can enjoy at your cookout.
