Stuck at home this Fourth of July? Take a virtual vacation with one of our regional cookout menus. From a Maine lobster dinner to a Kansas City barbecue to a Seattle cedar-smoked salmon, they all get you out of the kitchen and into the summer sun.

Clambake Salmon

A New England Style Clambake

Recreate dinner from a Maine lobster pound: in your charcoal grill steam the tasty crustaceans with clams, mussels, corn and potatoes. Finish with a classic blueberry pie.


A Seattle Salmon Supper

Salmon grilled on a cedar plank, grilled mushroom salad, and an apple-blackberry crisp spotlight the best of the Pacific Northwest.

Ribs Crabcakes

A Kansas City Barbecue

KC’s great barbecue tradition comes home with slow-smoked ribs, creamy cole slaw, tangy baked beans, and sweet watermelon for dessert.


A Chesapeake Bay Crab Fest

Old Bay-seasoned crabcakes, salads bursting with fresh-from-the-farm corn and beans, and a simple parfait of sweet, ripe peaches and honey whipped cream.

Tomato Napoleon Steak

A California Market Menu

Celebrate what’s seasonal and local with a menu inspired by Chez Panisse: an heirloom tomato salad, simple grilled chicken with a sweet and tangy glaze, and a cake that pairs the natural sweetness of corn with fresh blueberries.


A Texas Steak Cookout

The fireworks will be on the plate with this menu, starring grilled steak marinated in all the ingredients of a Margarita, plus warm corn tortillas,  spicy sides and a refreshing Michelada cocktail.
