With an estimated 87% of all Americans firing up the grill on July 4th, it officially marked Independence Day as the Number 1 grilling holiday of the year. Considering this, it may come as no surprise that July is also host to National Grilling Month, a month-long celebration of the history and practice of grilling.
Since we love grilling so much to begin with, and to celebrate National Grilling Month, last week we began a 2-part mini-series surrounding the topic of grilling. Our first blog on the matter discussed our Top 5 grilling safety tips and can be found here.
This week, as we wrap up our mini-series we are going to take a fun break from the safety-centered blogs we typically write and share our top 7 internet grilling recipes.
But, before we jump into our favorite grilling recipes from the internet we thought it would be fun to share some fun grilling statistics:
- A whopping 3 out of every 4 people in America own a grill.
- 1 million people in America have grilled within the last 12 months.
- 5 percent of Americans grill more than once a week.
- In 22 percent of grilling households, the grill master is female.
- The most popular food to grill is hamburgers which tops the list with 63 percent of grillers cooking burgers.
- 11 percent of grillers prepare breakfast on the grill.
With the numbers behind us, let’s get to the meat of this article: our favorite internet grilling recipes. (Pun intended)
