With Memorial Day just around the corner- and with summer on its way- it's time for a cookout! But what if you don't know how to fire up the grill? No worries. Grill It! by Chris Schlesinger and John Willoughby can help. This helpful book covers grilling inside and out. It includes advice on how to choose your fuel and your tools; building and starting the fire; and deciding when your food is done.

Here's a helpful tip on when to use the lid on a grill found in the book: "you should cover the grill only when you are doing long, indirect cooking, never when you are cooking directly over the coals."

Check out this book to find more helpful information and enjoy grilling this weekend!

Japanese Program Leaves a Strange Taste in Participants’ Mouths
