Grillmaster = Thrillmaster (and Other Beefy Summer Grilling Thoughts)
So, here’s the question of the day: WHO (wo)mans the grill at your house?? Because the fact is, throughout the summertime, and well beyond, GRILLMASTER = THRILLMASTER. No doubt about it, that is a law of meals and entertaining when the days are the longest.
With this truth in mind, then, we have partnered with Kansas Beef to fire up a juicy conversation on grilling and the many killer cuts of beef that showcase the technique. The exchange was in full swing Monday afternoon at our Twitter party #FNIchat, and continues today with tweets stamped by the hashtag still trickling in. Jump into the mix at any point. And at the very least, bite into the favorite tweets and links below. In no time at all you’ll have the inspiration you need to master the thrill of summer as it kicks off this Memorial Day weekend.
