Blurbs From the Branch: Mmmmmm…BBQ!!
It is the start of one of my husband’s favorite times of year because barbecue season is unofficially upon us here in the Pacific Northwest! He is the cook in our family and makes dinner for us nearly every evening, so when it is dry and warm enough outside he jumps at the chance to do some outdoor grilling. One of our favorite recipes is called Beer-can Chicken, and it is a favorite because the chicken turns out so soft and moist. You can find one version of the recipe in Beer-can Chicken : and 74 Other Offbeat Recipes for the Grill, by Steven Raichlen. There are also other great barbecue and burger recipes in these books that are available to check out:
