Grilling for Pleasure and for Profit

71QrTpwmSwL._SL1000_It’s almost Father’s Day in the US. It is also almost summer. It is that time of year when man longs to be outdoors, preferably along with fire, beer, and meat.

All Hail Grilling

Grilling is a fantastic hobby. It gets you out in the fresh air. It connects you with friends and family. It turns you into a good cook, a great conversationalist, a host, and a master of the flame.

Getting into outdoor grilling is actually very easy. There are 5 easy steps. Let’s check them out!

Step 1: Choose your Grill

First you need a grill. Start with something moderately-sized at the beginning. If you wind up loving the hobby, you can upgrade in the future. Here are some great entry-level options to consider which won’t break the bank.

Step 2: Choose your Tools

Next up you’ll want to get a few accessories to make the job easier and keep you looking cool while you grill.

I recommend this set.

Beautiful, inexpensive, and the complete package of what you’ll need to get started.

Step 3: Choose your Fuel

All grills need an energy source to generate heat. The 3 most common methods are electricity, gas, and charcoal. Depending on what you selected in Step 1, you’ll have different needs here in step 3.

 

My grill uses charcoal. If yours does too, consider using my favorite charcoal. It burns hotter than most and is the go-to choice for many restaurants.

Step 4: Choose your Recipe

OK, time to choose what you are going to cook. Great choices include burgers, steaks, and hot dogs. Also don’t forget to grill some veggies. You may have vegetarian guests and, let’s face it, properly grilled vegetables are downright awesome.

To find a recipe, browse some online recipes or even better, ask an older relative to share one of theirs. After all, one of the great things about grilling is it encourages bonding and the passing down of traditions and advice.

Step 5: Choose your Event

Now you are all set. Invite some people over to your place and show off your new skills. It is a great chance to reconnect with family, to bond with coworkers, to meet people in your neighborhood, and to make new friends!

Happy Grilling!
