Commit to trying something new: Variety is the spice of life. Make a commitment to experiment during the “off season” and learn new techniques. Never cooked veggies outdoors? Give it a shot.
Never smoked a turkey? What the heck? Make a run at it. Prime rib for Christmas? Absolutely.
Look to upgrade your equipment: This time of the year is the best time to look at new grills or BBQ units. The retailers have them priced to move. They don't want the units (hence their money) collecting dust over the winter months. Just do me a favor and buy quality. You won't regret it.
As we move into the autumn season, please continue grilling and creating great BBQ. In future columns I would really enjoy answering questions from readers relating to grilling
techniques and BBQ. Think of me as the “Dear Abby” of the BBQ world.
Just email me your questions at email@example.com and we may use your question in a future issue.
Now get out there and keep grilling!
