From shrimp skewers to pork sandwiches, the summer is the perfect time to test out some new recipes or some new twists on your traditional favorites. Here are our top five barbecue recipes to try at your vacation rental this summer.

1. Shrimp Skewers

2. Barbecue Ribs

Barbecue ribs only take about 30 minutes of preparation time but you do need to remember to start the process that morning if you want them to be ready for dinner that night.

This barbecue recipe requires 11 ingredients, such as apple cider vinegar, dry mustard powder, and Worcestershire sauce.

4. Pork Sandwiches
