Did you know…

Eric made a calendar with fabulous photos of food for a project for school.  I was the lucky winner of this fun calendar.  For the month of May there is a photo of some barbecued ribs.  The reason;  May is Barbecue month!!

Here are a few facts about barbecue;

1.  The most popular holidays for barbecuing, in order, July 4th (71%), Memorial Day (57%) and Labor Day (55%).  (Memorial Day we barbecued delicious hamburgers)

2.  The most popular foods for cooking on the grill, in order are, burgers (85%), steak (80%), hotdogs (79%), and chicken (73%).

3.  The side dishes most commonly prepared on the grill, in order are, corn (41%) – I have never done corn, potatoes(41%), and other vegetables (32%)

4.  The most popular flavors of barbecue sauce are hickory, followed by mesquite, honey and then spicy-hot.

  1. WHAAAT? We must remedy this corn issue…..immediately!

    I prefer to husk mine completely (some like to soak the corn with silk removed and husks on, in salted water for an hour or so for more of a steam like effect before grilling). I prefer a more roasted effect.

    Place husked corn on sheet of foil, SLATHER with butter, spread or spray with I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter all around the cob and season with salt (I prefer garlic salt) and pepper (I prefer coarse grind) all around. Sometimes I get fancy and make herb ( I prefer chives) or BBQ butter (Bobby Flay has a great recipe). Wrap tightly and grill over medium indirect heat, turning frequently (every 5 mins) for 15-20 minutes. Take care not to over cook!

    Easy and Delicious!
