MOMS – It’s time for us to step up to the plate and get to grilling!
All too often, the grilling is left to the guys. Well, it’s time for that to end.
I’m here to tell you that grilling is not scary! I especially love using my pellet grill. It’s like a giant, outdoor crockpot – but better. It’s easier to clean, and the complex flavor profile from the smoke can’t be replicated any other way.
How I Started Grilling
My husband left for a year-long deployment the week lockdown started. My pandemic passion project was learning to master his smoker. I’m not a chef or even that good of a cook really. But I love experimenting with flavors.
I ditched my Instant Pot and Crockpot for the grill and leveled up my game. I even won 2nd place in a global backyard BBQ contest just a few months into my grilling journey. As a pilot in the Navy, my husband’s call sign is MEAT. I definitely earned my title as Mrs. Meat! So I’m here to light a fire under you and help you get grilling!
What do you need to start grilling? Food and a grill.
There are a ton of devices and appliances some people swear by, but honestly, just use what works best for you and makes your life easier! My favorites? Bear claws for pulled pork, a wireless temperature probe, and these rubs and sauces from Grill Your Ass Off.
