It's estimated that about 73% of Americans grill on July 4th and about 60% grill on Memorial Day. Those two days are great for barbecuing, but you don’t need special occasions and national holidays as an excuse to eat smoked meats.
Here are some certain times that are great for enjoying smoked meats:
- Pretty much any sport -- Whether you’re tailgating a football game or watching a basketball game on TV with some friends, sports are great for cooking some tasty meats.
- Around the holidays -- Barbecuing on summer holidays is commonplace, but what about Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.? Those these wintery celebrations are usually paired with specific types of meals of their own, since family members and friends will be in town around this time, consider getting together a day or two before or after each one of these holidays and have a nice barbecue.
- Tuesday -- Why not? Tuesday is a great day for smoking meats. However, so are Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and even Sundays.
Additionally, it's not just about when you're eating but what you're eating. Here are a few of the best smoked BBQ recipes to try whipping up -- no matter the occasion:
