Step 1

Start Your Charcoal Grill

The first and number one thing I suggest with grilling watermelon is to do it on a charcoal grill and to use your HomeRight ElectroLight Fire Starter to get the party going faster than ever!

You've probably heard me rave over my charcoal starter for a while now, but for jobs like this, you can get your charcoal grill started SO much faster with no waiting and no accelerant needed!! 

Step 2

Put the Watermelon Slices on the Grill

Once your fire is started using your fire starter, I start by slicing up my watermelon into chunks and then I literally just place the watermelon straight onto the grill and let them start cooking.

Step 3

Add Extra Flavors

The nice thing about grilled watermelon is that you can do it so many different ways! Add a little honey and lime to make it sweet, add some kick to make it a spicy grilled watermelon!

Did you know that grilled watermelon with feta on it is a real thing and is SO amazing?! You could even do grilled watermelon skewers or grilled watermelon with balsamic vinegar drizzled over top! The possibilities are endless.

Step 4

Grill for 10-15 Minutes and Enjoy

You'll want to let the watermelon cook on the grill about 10-15 minutes, watching it for those grill marks of perfection!! Then pull it off and top it any way that you like! So easy I bet you didn't even realize it.

And just like that you have an amazing grilled dessert option for your friends and family! Top it with a drizzle of lime and honey, add some feta cheese, or make those chunks of watermelon into skewers with pound cake in between! So many different options and all summer to try them all out! Enjoy! To see more projects like this, head to The Cards We Drew blog.
