Summer means two glorious things are back in vogue: cold drinks and hot grills! We love grilling food -- it imparts a smoky flavor you just can't get from any indoor technique. Plus, it keeps the house from getting hot, and when the mercury starts to top out in the triple digits, the last thing you want is to make your house any hotter. The Cooking Light Test Kitchen pros and recipe developers have developed some of the best recipes for the grill. I find myself digging through MyRecipes.com each Friday afternoon, looking for what I'll be grilling over the weekend.
So for all you backyard entertainers and grilling gurus, we're teaming up with ReadySetEat.com to give away a great grilling prize pack.
Here's how you could win. Describe for us here in 100 words or less: What's your favorite dish to cook on the grill? Entries should be typed into the comments field of this post. Entries are due by Friday, June 28 at 11:59 EST. Winners will be notified by email July 2.
One grand prize winner will win a grilling prize pack complete with:
- A Small Grill – Black Portagrillo Picnic Time Portagrillo Portable Gas Grill
- Grilling Aprons
- Grilling Utensils
- $100 for Groceries
- Ready Set Eat Recipe Book
Two other winners will receive Cooking Light Way to Cook Grilling, a complete visual guide to the technique that creates enticingly smoky aromas and robust flavors in all types of foods—from meats and poultry to seafood and fresh fruits and vegetables, even desserts.
Editors will select their favorites based on originality, creativity, and how well you address our question. Winners will be notified via email by July 2, 2013. See the full contest rules.
