summer cookout tips!

Of course we all know that summer won't be complete without the barbecue cookout -- yum-my! I won't be sharing recipes today, instead I'll be giving tips to ensure that your summer cookout will be a success. Read on and let's get ready to chow!!

1. Choose the menu with care. Aside from the usual hotdogs and burgers, serve another crowd pleaser: chicken wings!! =)
2. Preheat a gas grill for 10 minutes before cooking. For charcoal grills, wait 20-30 minutes for the charcoal to turn to a light gray.
3. Use long-handled tongs or a spatula to turn food. Do not pierce the food while cooking. Piercing lets all the juices out = dried out meats! Not good!
