5 Outdoor Adventures & Food Inspiration That Will Make For An Exciting Fall

Fall brings with it the changing of seasons, the falling of leaves, and the opportunity to pack a bag, get outdoors, and cook some good food. Now that the air is getting colder and the colors around us are shifting, we can take full advantage of what mother nature has to offer. Here are five elevated outdoor meals you can easily cook on your Simple Grill and adventures to go along with them.

Fireside Feast

Our first fall must-have adventure is a relaxing camping trip where you can return to nature. Gather your friends and family and head to a wooded area like a campsite or public park. There’s no shortage of great spots to choose from in the U.S. KOA and National Park Service are great places to find your next site. While cooking your meals straight in the fire seems like a good option, you’re risking uneven cooking and burning your fresh catch. The Simple Grill’s precise cooking allows you to cook meats and seafood safely and thoroughly. Flip it open and perfectly sear steaks, seafood, and seasonal vegetables over the open flames. Elevate your next fireside feast with a grill that can make whatever you want, wherever you want to go.

Orchard Picnic

Many orchards and farms open their doors to visitors during the fall. Activities like apple picking and pumpkin patches are fun for the whole family and make for great pictures and memories! What better way to celebrate the harvest season than with a picnic at a local orchard or park? Pick fresh apples and seasonal produce and bring along a few picnic essentials and your Simple Grill. We love charcuterie favorites like artisanal cheeses and crusty bread! Save these for appetizers because the main course is craft grilled cheese sandwiches and apple-infused BBQ chicken. With its versatility and ability to handle various dishes, the Simple Grill is the ultimate orchard adventure essential.

Fall Foliage Hike & Grill

This one is for the views. Exploring the breathtaking fall foliage is a privilege we get to enjoy once a year. Combine your love for nature with your passion for cooking with a fall foliage hike and grill. Whether you're trekking through the mountains or strolling in a local park, you can bring along the Simple Grill for a mid-hike meal. Grill sausages, burgers, veggie skewers, and even desserts at a scenic overlook, and enjoy the panoramic views with every bite. The Simple Grill is easy to pack, cook, and clean and its compact design and easy transport make it a trailblazing foodie's dream. 

Harvest Festival 

Whether you live in a city, suburb, or in the country there’s likely a fall festival happening somewhere around you! These festivals feature local produce, live music, and artisanal crafts. Grab some fresh veggies and local delicacies and find a good spot to grill for the whole family.   Make farm-fresh corn on the cob, savory sausages, and sweet potato fries. Going with a big group? Save money and treat everyone to a delicious meal. This is as close to farm-to-grill as you can get!

Lakeside Cookout

While swimming in a lake this time of year may be a little chilly, sitting and enjoying the beautiful scenery with your friends and family is sure to warm you up. Pack your fishing gear, a cooler filled with drinks and ingredients, and head to your nearest lake or river. Catch fish and grill them on the spot on your Simple Grill. Enjoy a fresh and flavorful meal by the water's edge and make sure your catch is cooked to perfection every time. The Simple Grill offers you a foldable, portable option that allows you to create the best meals, wherever you go. 

Let’s Get Grilling!

Fall is a season full of colors that calls us outdoors to enjoy everything it has to offer. Being able to camp, hike, and maneuver rough terrain, while having the ability to cook delicious meals, means having a grill that can go where you go.
