What better way to spend quality time with family and friends than grilling?

Some interesting facts:

1. The original charcoal grilling briquette was developed by E.G. Kingsford who was a close relative of Henry Ford.

2. The original word for barbecue comes from the Spanish word barbacoa which was a wooden structure to roast meat upon.

3. The outdoor gas grill was inventing in the 1960's in Little Rock Arkansas...

What better way to say go visit The Butcher Block than on YELP!

First time at a butcher shop. Got a half pound of Kobe steak and a pound of a dry aged t-bone. I don't even know how to cook, but the friendly staff there gave me very easy to follow directions. The kobe was the best I've ever had. It's almost sad to go back to regular meat :(

Oh and they turned me on to some white truffle salt which was awesome.

Oh my sub!! Go get yours at The Butcher Block LV!

Buffalo Burgers will have you wanting more! Grilling tips!

  • For juiciness and best flavor, use relatively lean meat (80 to 90 percent lean) but not the very leanest; you need a little fat for mouthwatering burgers.
  • Keep ground meat refrigerated up to two days in its supermarket wrap (or check the use-by date on the package).
  • Thoroughly wash surfaces, hands, and utensils that come in contact with raw meat. Do not allow uncooked burgers to stand at room temperature more than one hour.
  • Don't overmix when combining meat with other ingredients. Don't squeeze or compress the meat when shaping it into patties or you'll end up with dry, tough burgers.
  • To prevent sticking, get the grill rack good and hot before putting the burgers on. When grilling very lean ground meat, poultry, or fish, it's a good idea to spray both sides of the burger with a nonstick cooking spray or brush with a light coat of vegetable oil.
  • Never flatten or score burgers with a spatula as they cook or you'll lose precious juices.
  • Cook all burgers thoroughly. Burgers don't have to be well-done to be safe — just not rare. Cooking times will vary, depending on the thickness of the patties and the heat of the grill, so the only way to be sure the burgers are done is to make them all the same size, then break into one to check. Or you can use an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into the patty to get a reading in seconds.
  • Use a long-handle spatula with a heatproof handle to easily flip the patties.
