With the 4th of July just a few days away, many people are making plans to get their grill fired up for their holiday get together. If you’re looking for some new ideas, a great place to check is the Barbecues and Grilling blog that is done by Derrick Riches. It’s a wealth of information for outdoor cooking at this time of year. Some of his recent posts included: “Making Stuffed Burgers” (June 30, 2012), “Top 10 BBQ Chicken Sauce Recipes” (June 26, 2012), and “Top 10 Pork Marinade Recipes” (June 22, 2012).
Several other resources that are well worth exploring are the websites for several of the well known names in grilling and barbecue:
- Weber has a wealth of information for you to check out. Under the GRILL OUT tab on their website, you’ll find recipes & videos, grilling tips, and a number of free, downloadable booklets.
- Kingsford, a name long associated with high quality charcoal, offers a wide range of tasty recipes. Just click on the GET GRILLING link. There is lots of instructional information under the KINGSFORD UNIVERSITY tab. Here you’ll find both tips and videos.
- Johnsonville = brats. Their website is chock full of tips and recipes. Click on the GRILLVILLE tab on the site.
In addition to these helpful resources, our library has a large variety of books and DVDs that can help you improve your grilling and barbecue skills and make your guests happy. Check some of them out on your next visit!
