Did you know that May is national barbecue month? Well it is, and here's proof:
May is National BBQ Month
And in honor of this prestigious month, here's some bbq facts from the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association (The HPBA) - a trade organization for barbecue manufacturers and retailers:
- ~ The most commonly prepared side dishes are corn, other vegetables and potatoes. (Yes, it does rather beg the question of what exactly are 'other vegetables'?)
- ~ Barbecue Sauce is the most popular condiment followed by dry meat rubs used by 1/3 of charcoal and gas grill owners.
- ~ Burgers (87%), steaks (83%), chicken (78%) and hot dogs (76%) are the most commonly prepared foods on the outdoor grill.
