BBQ on a Budget

August 30, 2017

Grilling season is in full effect at ROSS’ Spring Parc affordable apartments in Silver Spring, Maryland! Our outdoor grill and picnic area makes getting people together for a cookout quick and simple.

We all know that grilling can sometimes be costly but there are ways to grill without going over budget. We’ve gathered a few useful tips for grilling like a pro without spending more than necessary:


Savor Your Steak

Everyone loves a good steak but they can get pricey. Instead of paying for premium cuts, choose a less expensive cut and season it with salt before grilling to make it tender.

You can use any salt of your choosing, though sea salt is preferred. Don‘t worry, your steak won’t be salty – simply allow the steak to sit for an hour, then rinse off the remainder of the salt and pat dry. Lastly, add your seasonings of choice and throw it on the grill!


Season Your Sausage

Spice up regular grilled sausages with mixed peppers for a little something extra to enhance their flavors without having to buy a more expensive brand.

To take it to the next level, you can add a little garlic, chili powder and Italian seasonings before tossing it on the grill. This trick makes for a delicious dish, whether you use chicken, turkey or pork sausages.


Save on Sauces

A lot of people waste money by buying rubs and sauces from the grocery store when they can easily be made with ingredients you already have at home.

Make your own barbecue sauce with vinegar, ketchup, mustard, honey or brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Add some paprika for a smoky flavor or hot sauce for a kick.


While saving a few bucks, everyone is going to be begging for your recipes and asking for the date of your next BBQ!
