Barbecue Recipes to Celebrate Labor Day

by

We at Cliché have mixed feelings about Labor Day. While any holiday gives us the perfect excuse to relax and have fun (and in this case, to honor the American labor movement), Labor Day also marks the unofficial end of summer, and this year, it feels especially difficult to say goodbye. However, we’re ready to give this summer one last hurrah, and what better way than with a delicious barbecue? Here, we share some of our favorite grill-ready recipes from Sparkling Ice.
