July is National Grilling Month, The Smokiest, Crispiest of Holidays

Capture the sizzle and excitement of cooking with fire — July is National Grilling Month!

Nothing beats a grassfed steak seared over a charcoal grill, or steamy zucchinis singed on a skewer. Fresh sweet corn, warm and juicy with just a few spots of smoky char. Potatoes cradled in tin foil, tucked in the corner of the grill to absorb the aroma of hickory, smoked chicken, grilled shrimp…I could go on but this keyboard isn’t drool-proof!

To help you celebrate this most perfect of holidays, we’re putting a few choice books on sale for 25% off this week to whet your appetite and inspire you toward delicious, outdoor, dinner creations. Looking for a recipe to suit that plump poultry you picked up at the farmer’s market? Or perhaps you’re curious about the provenance of those hot peppers you’re marinating. Never fear, we’ve got the book for you!
