Grilling Gurus, Mad Dog & Merrill, present grilling spiced with humor in seminars that demonstrate their motto, “If you can cook it, you can grill it.” Television celebrities and grilling experts, they have traveled the country for more than 32 years entertaining and educating backyard enthusiasts about the finer points of grilling. They also host the popular TV series, Mad Dog & Merrill’s Midwest Grill’n, an educational, entertaining show featuring recipes, tips, tricks and techniques.
Mad Dog and Merrill will share common mistakes people make when grilling. For example:
• When you put meat on the grill dry, that’s the way it’s going to come off. The solution is to use some kind of oil.
• Many people grill their food with the heat on too high.
• You need to clean your grill before cooking. Flare-ups usually mean that you have grease on the bottom of your grill. Eliminate that grease and you get rid of those flares.
You’ll learn a lot, and laugh while you’re doing it. Attend this fun seminar for great grilling tips and techniques, as well as fantastic, mouth-watering recipes.
