This contest is now closed! Congratulations to our winner, Steffi S!
Our next giveaway starts on July 1st, 2013.

7 day seattle forcastHappy June, everyone! Guess what?
It’s grilling season again in Seattle.
Yes, really. How do I know? Just take a look at the forecast – no rain in sight for the next 7 days and temperatures above 70 degrees. Whooo Hoooo!

If you live any place else, I’m sure this is hard to understand, but this kind of weather is really as good as it gets here in early summer.

Time to celebrate and fire up the grill!

    Ok here is the quintessential grilled meal:
    Baby back pork ribs that have the Rub with Love (Tom Douglas, local Seattle fame) dry rub seasoning coupled with Harrol Bros BBQ sauce (another Seattle local flavor), placed in a “seal-a-meal” for up to 2 days in the fridge, then baked at 320 degrees for 1 hour and finished on the grill. This is accompanied by roasted asparagus with herbed sea salt, high quality olive oil and fresh cracked pepper – then add to this meal parboiled and cut russets in a closed foil envelop seasoned with fresh onion, basic salt and black pepper. I am now running to the store in prep for Thursday night’s meal. Delish!!
