The Best Summer Ever
Father's Day is a day for Dad. We not only honor our father, but all men who have acted as a father figure in our life - whether as Stepfathers, Uncles, Grandfathers, or "Big Brothers." The first Father's Day was observed on June 19, 1910 in Spokane Washington. In 1966 President Lyndon Johnson signed a presidential proclamation declaring the 3rd Sunday of June as Father's Day

Strips of fat should only be 1/4 inch thick. - Wash in clean water. - Season with cracked pepper, basil, tarragon, chives, rosemary and garlic.- Preheat gas grill on high or a single layer of white coals for charcoal. - Oil the grate and place steak on grill and close the lid for one minute. - Lift lid and turn steak over. Close lid and continue grilling for one minute. - Turn again for 2 plus 1 minute per 1/2 inch (1 1/2 inch equals 4 minutes). - Turn the forth time and continue grilling for 2 plus 1 minute per 1/2 inch. - Check for doneness with a meat thermometer at 140 degrees.- Well done, remove from grill. - Let steak rest for 2-3 minutes before serving
Lets Get Married
This month is June, and the busiest wedding month of the year. If you’ve ever wondered why so many weddings take place in June, the tradition began hundreds of years ago with Roman mythology. The month of June is named after Juno, the goddess of love and marriage. Avoid Summer holiday weekends like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day.
Smoking Meat on Grill
Soak chips in cold water for at least 20 minutes before grilling. Toss in about half of the wet chips onto the coals. Cover grill while cooking. Add wood chips as needed to maintain smoke. The key is matching the meat to the wood.
