06When the weather starts to get warmer and winter slowly fades into a distant memory, we start looking forward to longer days and time spent outdoors. I, for one, enjoy cooking and spending time outdoors. The combination of cooking and being outside awakens something with a primal and innate urge to grill meats over an open flame and devouring it. There’s so much joy in celebrating outdoors and doing a backyard barbecue. Sometimes, it’s nice to take some time to revitalize the spirit with good company, good food and shared laughter. Being a winter baby in the north east did not necessarily provide the excuse or means to initiate a birthday barbecue outdoors for myself. However, summer for me always meant grilling outdoors and I took great pride in preparing and hosting some of the most memorable barbecues within my circle. I was definitely my own Grill Master.

It may seem like a cop-out to say I prefer both, but I will say I lean favorably towards charcoal grilling from a personal standpoint. Whatever school of grilling you take sides in, the technique is only as good as the tools used.
