Our last hoorah for the summer or end of the summer is right around the corner. And I know you're thinking to yourself, "gee these definitely would have been helpful at the beginning of the season". Nevertheless, here we are. And just because summer is almost over, doesn't mean grilling season is over. And you can take these with you and try some of them now and bring em back at the beginning of bbq season next year.

But again, there's still PLENTY of good ole grilling time left this year.

Now, for the professionals or folks who are experienced, you don't need these and some of this stuff will be old hat to you. You might even disagree with some of the suggestions.

But I threw these together for folks who might be new to grilling or want to kind of take their basic bbq skills up a notch. Nothing here is too fancy. And you can get most seasonings at Meijer or (and I did for a lot of these) Aldi.

You don't have to go broke but you should find ways to get flavor involved with your grilling. And some simple tricks like marinating (from 3-4 hours or overnight) and seasoning can really help out and make your grilling stand out. And yes, some folks don't know where to start with seasoning so we'll point you in the right direction tere as well with some suggestions.

And yes, there are several pictures of my chicken because it came out juicy and tender and grilled to picture perfect restaurant quality.
