May is National Barbecue Month! It’s the time of year that celebrates the beginning of the “official” grilling season (even though many of you grill all year long)!
In this article, we look at the history of Barbecue Month and how to celebrate it.
The History of Barbecue
Barbecue is a centuries-old way of cooking meat and vegetables, and it’s time to celebrate it!
While people have been cooking meat over an open flame forever, the history of the grills isn’t quite so clear.
Common lore says that when Columbus discovered the Americas, he notices the natives roasting meat over a wooden grill. And, it appears he enjoyed the smoky flavor.
Cooking outdoors is one of the most popular ways to grill, especially during the summer. It keeps the house cool and makes everything taste better.
People grill for as few as one-two people and for a crowd. It’s great for all sizes of gatherings.
You’ll find many types of cookers on the market, including our favorite grill: The Big Green Egg.
How to Celebrate Barbecue Month
The best way to celebrate National BBQ Month is to get outside and get cooking! Whether you grill outdoors for the summer season or all year long, what matters is that you do it.
May is a great time to give grilling a try, or you can take this month to increase your grilling days.
Grill for your family and friends, or host weekend parties. It’s up to you.
Remember that grilling isn’t just about the meat. Throw on some veggies, too.
Don’t forget the dessert – after the meal, use your grill to cook up everyone’s favorite S’mores.
