Check out what we are doing around the grill. It might be a great grilled dish or a snapshot from our life on the barbecue trail…

 

Ireland Elizabeth traveled across the ocean to teach 80 Irish and English men and women at Ballymaloe Cookery School in County Cork, Ireland. Needless to say, they were fired up about American grilling and barbecue. Elizabeth is pictured with Darina Allen, owner of the school and her students.
Gretchen-Judge Gretchen is a certified Kansas City Barbecue Society. This year, while in Lynchburg, TN judging, the Jack Daniel's barbecue contest Gretchen's motto was "Stomach Don't Fail Me Now." Putting her skills to work, she consumed nearly 15 lbs. of meat. Gretchen is pictured bundled up (for an unseasonably cold day) and donning all of her judge's credentials.
Beer-Can-Chicken The Girls love to make Beer Can Chicken!
We swear it's the best roasted chicken you'll ever make or eat – and it gets a hearty laugh at every cookout.
EAK-intexas Elizabeth got some brisket tips from the firemaster at the original Kreuz Market in Lockhart, Texas. Check out her recipe for Hill County Brisket in our ecipes section. For an authentic touch, serve it on slices of brown butcher paper with sliced white bread and sour pickle slices!
Memphis-in-May The World's Largest Barbecue Contest, or as the Girls say, "The Mardi Gras of BBQ!" May 17-19, 2002
This is the only place in the world where the fatter you are and the hairier you are – the greater you are – but sorry girls, the rule only applies to boys who dress up as girls!
