Here are the top three reasons why people love grilling, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Assocation and M & I.
1. It's affordable- Consider this, the average price of a 16-oz ribeye steak and baked potato at a moderately priced restuarant runs about $25. When grilling at home, you could spend that same amount of money and feed at least two people. So, scope out the weekly newspaper for meat sales at your local market!
2. It's convenient- With the warm temperatures of the summer, the last thing you want to do is add to the temperature of your house by turning on the oven. Make cleaning up easier by keeping most of the mess outside.
3. It's a great way to spend time with family and friends- Lets face it, barbecuing is a social event. It gives you the opportunity to kick back with friends and family.
Whether your choice is burgers, shrimp or zucchini; firing up the grill is a great way to take advantage of one of America's favorite pastimes!
