Oh man, summer is upon us, and if you're like me that means that it's time to go out and grill. If you're my father, it's always grilling time, all you need is charcoal and – weather dependent — a winter coat. But, for the rest of us, summer is when we tend to grill. Be they hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, shrimps, ribs, or just about anything that might have made a noise when alive, they're better cooked on the grill. At least, they are until they burned to a crisp — folks, don't pretend you're serving blackened bratwurst, we know the truth.
Now, if you're the type who passes off blackened brats as real food, we may have some help for you. Well, not just us, us and Food Network. Those fine people are having their Grill Week the week of May 25th, and it's just the sort of thing that will help you not destroy those otherwise delicious dogs. You just try and tell Bobby Flay that it tastes better with those black bits. Flay knows when you're lying, Flay doesn't like lying, and even better than that, Flay will show you how to not destroy everyone's dinner ever again.
Now, if you're really a disaster on the grill it's possible that a simple Grill Week isn't going to fix all your problems, it's possible that you're going to need a little bit more than that. So, Food Network is taking it one step further than just Grill Week. Once Grill Week is over, Bobby Flay's new show, Grill It with Bobby Flay starts up (May 31st at 10:30am). See, help is coming from all sides, and if that's not enough… well, take it away publicity people:
Get your grilling essentials this summer at Food Network! Whether on TV, Foodnetwork.com, or from Bobby Flay’s new cookbook, Food Network has lots of grilling tips that’s sure to help you master the grill!
See, if TV can't fix your grilling issues, they've got the net, they've got Bobby Flay's new cookbook, and we've got a giveaway pack with said cookbook for you. One lucky winner is going to get a Food Network/Bobby Flay Grilling Basket; an All-Clad BBQ Tool set; Flay's new book, Bobby Flay’s Burger, Fries, and Shakes cookbook; and a canvas bag.
