Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Grill This Summer


Summer is almost here in Chicago.  With the few nice days the city gets throughout the year, it’s best to make the most of it.  There is no better way to spend summer than in the backyard with a grill and some friends.  Here is why:  


1:  It’s an important life skill.  Since the dawn of human history, people have been grilling food over fire.  What makes you think it should be any different now? Clocking in some hours of practice this summer will set you up for a life full of grilling wisdom.


2:  It’s a great opportunity to get outside.  Here in Chicago, we know how to make our short summers count.  So why spend a beautiful summer day in an indoor kitchen or at some fast food restaurant? Nothing can beat the feel of a backyard on a warm sunny day, and grilling is the perfect chance to make the most of this time outside while cooking up some delicious food.


3: It’s cheaper than going out to get food.  Restaurants charge more money for the same things, and you can make them better for less.  It’s not only a fun move, but a financially responsible one too.


4: There’s a lot of variation available.  From steak to burgers to tacos, and even vegetarian food like corn and mushrooms, everything is better on the grill.  Many thing that grills are just for items like hamburgers or hotdogs, but grilling is a great way to make really good vegetables as well.


5: It’s an awesome chance to spend time with friends.  What could be better than kicking it with some friends, a nice day outside, a grill, and some good food? The answer is nothing.  If everybody brings one or two food items, it is an inexpensive way to have a blast.


So fire up the grill wherever it may be, whether it’s the backyard, the park, maybe even the Whitney Young parking lot (just kidding) and make the most of this summer.
