Winter can’t hold us back!!! Let’s put some meat on!

Patriotic BBQ

By

This hilarious poster was done for something called Australia Day in, obviously, Australia.

And aside from the U.S., Australia with its “barbie” culture is at the top of the list of greatest BBQ spots.

I can’t help but feel patriotic every time I put a great piece of meat on my grill, too. I feel like I’m doing my country proud as well when I grill up something divine.

My love for the Aussies just grew exponentially.

But they still can’t beat Kansas City, all of Texas, Memphis, etc., etc., etc. for the top prize. Sorry, mates. :)

BBQ on the Balcony!

Live in the city without a big backyard? That can sometimes pose a problem when you get a hankering for a great grilled steak.

But have no fear, the Balcony Barbecue is here!

Pretty genius! It’s small, compact and perfect for small spaces.

And anything that encourages more grilling, well, that’s awesome in my book.

Check out this article to see the Balcony Barbecue and more fun ways you can grill where you never thought it would be possible.

Grill on, grill warriors!

Grilled Cat Food?

By

Help me understand this.

Do cats know the tasty goodness of an amazingly grilled meal? Do you think they’re thinking, “Yay! Grilled food just in time for summer!”

I’m not sure their tastes are discriminating. But I do like the visual of this cat prancing in front of a cute little grill with steak and chicken on it.

It’s very magical.

But is it realistic to think cats need food that tastes grilled?

Is that for the cat – or for us?

I think we know the answer to that question. “If I like grilled meats, my cat will love them! I must buy this for Mr. Tinkles!”

Marketing at its finest. Well played, Friskies. Well played.

“Meat” Honey Boo Boo

By

To be honest, I DO NOT spend time watching Honey Boo Boo. There’s enough drama and outright ridiculousness in my own life so I really don’t need to watch any more of that.

BUT, this was too good to pass up. I mean, Pumpkin was gonna eat 3 lbs. of meat PLUS a 1-lb. bun. This I had to see.

Regretfully, this video is only a teaser for the meatlicious episode. But they rerun these shows so often you’re bound to catch it.

That is, if you’re as meat-curious as I am. I cannot believe a young woman could eat that much meat in one sitting.

But I’ve seen stranger things before.

And since it’s grilling season, I’m thinking YOU should have a cookout and issue your own challenge along these lines.

Make posters, set up a Facebook account. See who can eat the most meat in one sitting.

What else is summer for, right?

Bon appetit!

Summer Grilling Tips

By

Grilling is hard, man.

At least I think so. If you want it medium rare, you must time it just right.

If you like very little pink inside, well, you have to time it right, too.

It’s a lot of pressure.

But the end result is so worth it.

That’s what I like this handy dandy grilling chart. It helps me figure out how NOT to mess up the meat.

Plus, you can see some great grilling tips from a real-live chef here. That’ll help the summer grilling become epic around your house.

Happy cooking, mates! And may the magic touch be with you. And also with me.

Summer Grill Fiesta

By

How was your Father’s Day?

Ours was pretty good, I must say! And I wasn’t even the one being celebrated!

My dad and the hubby got sufficiently feted and fussed over. And steaks were on the menu as you can see. It was a regular SUMMER GRILL FIESTA!

Someone was using his noggin when setting the permanent date for Father’s Day in June when the sun is shining and the grill is smoking.

I hope all you dads out there felt as cherished as ours did. A steak always says “I love you” at our house!

Grill Safety

By

It’s that time of year when we all venture out and take advantage of the glorious sunlight and grill away.

But how many of us have stopped to think about giving that grill a tune-up and brushing up on our grill safety?

I don’t know about you, but I’m just so giddy about grilling I usually just want to dive right in. But my husband always stops me – and does it the right way.

The grill is thoroughly cleaned, we use different plates and utensils for different meats and so on.

Are you up to speed on grilling best practices? Well, click here just to make sure. The folks at United Healthcare have put together some tips for staying healthy while grilling this summer.

That way, we can all keep grillin’ on in good health!!!
