One of our favorite signs of spring is the scent of charcoal smoke wafting through neighborhood backyards as families ready their grills for the first cookout of the season. Dining al fresco is a great way to spend time with family and friends, enjoying nature and trying out new recipes. Plus, according to a report from the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association, 54% of Americans say they make healthier, fresher food choices when they cook outdoors
May is National Barbecue Month and there’s no better way to celebrate than by firing up the grill and spending some time together outdoors. We’ve planned the perfect meal for a weekend cookout, with flavorful dishes that make the most of seasonal produce and the rich taste of the grill.
