Char-Broil Tour – Memphis in May & The Weather Channel

 

I have just come home from a terrific time at Memphis in May with the awesome Char-Broil Tour !!

Memphis in May is a fun place to spend a weekend for sure. Hundreds of teams from all over come and compete in three categories Shoulder, Ribs or Whole Hog

The first event for the weekend was a TV segment with a local FOX Memphis Station

We talked about everyday grilling and we made some delicious Thai Chicken Kabobs, Grilled veggies, and one of my favorites – grilled tater slices with blue cheese and herb crumbles.

The recipes were inspired by Char-Broil’s new cookbooks 

 

On Saturday AM bright and early we did multiples of TV segments with The Weather Channel.  I got to work with an amazing Meteorologist Paul Goodloe. He was terrific to work with. Lots of fun!

 

 

Over the course of the morning we made some delicious lip smacking BBQ all using Char-Broil TRU Infrared grills

Here are the recipes from each segment:

Memphis Rub Ribs

Road Side Chicken

Pulled Pork

Pulled Pork Nachos 

I have to tell you though one of the highlights for the entire weekend was working with the amazing – yes truly amazing people on the Char-Broil Mobile Tour !!

 

The Tour crew did an excellent job grilling up awesome tasty items from the tours sponsors: Flatout, Bubba Burgers, Beano’s, Dole, Arla, Pork,and Amerigas.  Thousands of people stopped by.

They are an incredibly upbeat happy happy group of people.

  

They have very happy grill experiences.  It is a proven fact that happy people just make better BBQ.

It was a really great experience! Thanks so much to the people at Char-Broil, the Weather Channel and the entire Mobile Char-Broil Tour
