Steak is something that many are passionate about. Dry-aged steak requires another level of that passion altogether. There is a lot of care and work that goes into the production of a dry-aged steak. How does one buy a dry-aged steak? How do you properly grill it?
Whether the goal is to add extra flavor to your meal to create tender meat from a tough cut, marinating is one of the most used techniques to achieve that goal. Find out how to make the best homemade marinades and the most fitting ways to use them.
There are several good reasons to build a good working relationship with your local butcher. Not only would shopping at a butcher help your local economy, but you will receive a higher-quality cut of meat that is perfect for the meal you are preparing.

If you’re an avid griller, changing the propane is something that you will have to deal with (unless you have a natural gas hookup), but how do you tell if you need to refill your propane tank? How do you tell if you need to replace your propane tank?

There is no end to information out there to help with creating exquisite meals using a smoker.
Whether you are a seasoned expert or the proud owner of a brand new Napoleon Grill, grill safety is something that should be kept in mind always.
Let’s face it. When you cook on a barbecue you are literally playing with fire – but in a very delicious way. Like any time you play with fire, you should ensure that you are doing so in the safest way possible.
Whether or not you’re the monarch of your grilling domain or a newcomer to the grilling set, mastery of the smoker will make a great addition to your BBQ skills.
Cooking on a charcoal grill or a smoker, compared to using a gas grill, is a very different experience. Grilling with charcoal is generally a labor of love; it is best suited for a long and slow cook.
