Happy Summer Time with Barbecue

As the weather gets warmer many of us turn our thoughts and stomachs to that great past time, the barbecue. We all know there is that time of the year when suddenly the mouth-watering smell of someone barbecuing begins to waft across the neighborhood. And with almost limitless choices, such as, steak, chicken, pork, ribs, hamburgers, hot dogs, shish kabobs and anything else you can think of, to throw on the grill the tasty goodness can last all summer long. The nice thing about firing up the barbecue is that it takes minimal effort and little cleanup to have your favorite food cooked and served. Most of the food cooked on a barbecue just need to be thawed, maybe marinated a few hours before and then slapped on the grill for that smoky great taste. 

All across America, grilling is hot, even when the weather is not hot. Anyone want to learn some knowadge about the Tools and Techniques of BBQ. Americans and 25% of northeasterners cook out year-round. “Barbecuing has become a national phenomenon,” says Steven Raichlen, author of The Barbecue Bible and How to Grill, “and it’s not hard to see why that’s the case. Cooking out makes any meal a lot more exciting for the whole family.” The McMenamins’ fondness for outdoor grilling is part traditional, part practical. “My husband and I grew up in families that cooked out a lot, so it’s a natural part of our lives,” says Susan. “Plus, with grilling there are no pots and pans to clean, and the food is nutritious for the kids.” 

Of course, just about any meat is healthier when grilled because the fat drips off. But the McMenamins’ favorite dishes feature especially vitamin-rich ingredients. Susan buys salmon, sea bass, or tuna in a teriyaki-style sauce from The Seafood Shoppe in Wainscott, NY, or marinates skinless chicken breasts in Italian dressing. She pairs fish or poultry with grilled vegetables and couscous for a balanced meal. “The girls like it all,” says Susan. “I decided a long time ago that I wasn’t going to make special meals for them, and I think that helped expand their tastes.” In fact, the couple serves hamburgers and hot dogs only when friends’ children visit.
