As the last frost thaws and the air fills with warmth, it’s the signal we’ve all been waiting for: grilling season has arrived! If you tucked your grill away during winter, now is the time to fire it back up!

Before you dive in, it’s essential to ensure your grill and supplies are prepped and ready for action. Take a moment to assess your inventory of grilling essentials and give your grill a once-over. Make sure all your tools are accounted for and that your grill is in prime condition. Stock up on charcoal, wood, or gas so you won’t find yourself running low mid-cookout.

Now, onto the main event: choosing the perfect meats for your grill. Opt for quality cuts of beef to kick off your grilling season on the right note. Charolais beef will give you a robust beef flavor coupled with a flavor that your family will love. Look for USDA grade choice or prime beef for the best flavor and tenderness. While traditional cuts like strip steaks or rib eyes are always crowd-pleasers, don’t be afraid to explore lesser-known cuts like flat iron steak, tri-tip, or skirt steak for a delicious meal. 

And let’s not forget about the beloved classic: the hamburger. Aim for an 80/20 grind to ensure juicy perfection. Elevate your grilling game with an array of seasonings, marinades, and rubs, offering endless possibilities for flavor experimentation. For an added layer of complexity, consider incorporating wood chips into your grilling routine to infuse your meats with a smoky essence.
