New Holiday Grilling Traditions
Lissa Wyman -- Casual Living, November 18, 2009
As more consumers continue to grill year-round, preparation of traditional holiday meals is moving from the kitchen to the back yard.
In fact, 53% of American grill owners say they are grilling all year long, according to the latest results from the Weber GrillWatch Survey.
As more Americans fire up their grills throughout the year, Weber has launched a new Web site devoted to the art of grilling holiday meals. With mouthwatering recipes, grilling tips, instructional videos and even a grocery list that can be e-mailed to friends, this Web site at www.weber.com/holidaygrilling is sure to bring new grilling traditions to the family meal.
“Grilling your holiday meal is a great way to spice up the conventional fare, and with this Web site you can become an expert at grilling,” said Jamie Purviance, author of Weber's Way to Grill, a New York Times Best Seller. “One of my favorite holiday recipes is the Apple-Brined Turkey with Big Time Gravy, which features the method of brining to create a juicy, succulent bird. Many people are intimidated by grilling the holiday turkey, but by watching the demonstration video featured on the Web site there are no mistakes. You are taken step-by-step through the process so grilling becomes easy.”
In addition to the Apple-Brined Turkey recipe, there are recipes for the entire holiday meal -- from side dishes such as green beans and squash, to pineapple upside-down cake for dessert. The Web site has helpful advice for grilling, and each recipe can be downloaded with the option of e-mailing a grocery list to make shopping easy.
The site is a "one-stop shop" for creating the perfect holiday meal. To check out these holiday recipes, tips and videos, go to www.weber.com/holidaygrilling.
