Summer is officially here!  Memorial Day is the official kick off to carefree summer days.  Down here in Texas you all take your BBQ'ing very seriously.  It is fun to ask people for their preferences and tips for grilling that perfect steak.  The passion heats up when you have two people talking about their love for the two different types of grilling!  To help you out if you are new to the BBQ adventure we did a quick run down of the different ways to BBQ.
