A Taste of Summer
There's something delicious for everyone with these grilled favorites
Fire up the grill (or the slow cooker or the smoker or the broiler or...take your pick--all food is good food) because May is National Barbecue Month. The Barbecue Council founded the celebratory month in 1963 to encourage outdoor cooking. Since then, grilling and barbecuing have increased in popularity and grown to something more than just another method of food prep...in fact, for some folks, the grill is more than a hobby--it's darn near an obsession. But there's room at the picnic table for everyone!
Now, we know the answer to "What IS BBQ (or bar-b-que, or barbecue, or barbeque, or however you choose to spell it)?" can be a hotly contested item, but we're not going to quibble, and we don't want to offend anyone with our somewhat generous definition.
What we've got for you this month is a host of "barbecue and BBQ-adjacent" recipes that are as easy to make as they are delicious. So whether you want true BBQ or just something to take to your backyard potluck cookout--we've got you covered. Let's get cooking!
