Fire Up The Grill

Posted June 1st, 2021

The heat of summer is finally here - and so is grilling season. Whether the perfect summer means lounging in a pool or sipping on an icy cold beverage in the shade, nothing signifies summer quite like that charcoal flavor on a juicy burger at a backyard get-together.

It’s time to get back to our innate instinct of using the heat of the flame to grill, smoke, roast, and sear your meats to perfect doneness. Just like our ancestors used to gather around the fire to cook their daily hunt or catch, this unique cooking method is a ritual we were born to do. Grilling is all about discovery, from discovering new cuts of meat and seasoning methods to learning new techniques like reverse-searing and “cavemanning”. It truly is an art to be mastered. However, grilling is more than just a form of cooking. It brings people together. If there’s anything we’ve learned over the past year, it’s the importance of connecting with others. You don’t have to be an extrovert to be fueled by the energy of having others nearby. But no one gathers over a pot of stew on the stovetop to watch it simmer. Light up that grill, and bam - everyone congregates and you, the grill master, become the master of the ceremonies. Grilling is a communal activity designed to provide the nourishment of others, and having a good time doing it! So if you needed any more reasons to fire up the grill, we got you covered.

So don’t let your current grill hold you back this summer like it did last year. Whether your grill was purchased on a whim or is just plain old, it may be time to replace it with a more suitable grill that can accommodate your dreams of becoming a Grill master. Today’s grills offer far more cooking options and abilities than ever before, including precise temperature gauges, grease management systems, ceramic radiant technology, infrared burners, wifi connectivity, digital displays, downdraft exhaust, LED lighting, and thoughtfully designed burner locations to achieve exactly what you need. So if your current grill is coming up short on results, come check out a new grill at Queen City.
