While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Ladies and gentlemen, start your grills - July 4 is (of course) National Barbecue Day!
What better way to celebrate this summery birthday for our country than gathering your loved ones in the backyard and sitting down to the cookout to beat all cookouts?
Whichever barbecuing mentality you buy into, get the grill going and rejoice in that sharp sizzle of your favorite meat or vegetables across the grate. You can dig a pit and have an old-fashioned barbecue, wheel out the grill or smoke chicken, pork or beef until it falls apart in your hands.
However you celebrate today, whether you're quaffing lemonade and frying chicken, serving grandma's famous baked beans and potato salad or shoveling down apple pie while watching a baseball game, enjoy the Fourth, best of all American traditions.
Happy Fourth of July, dear friends! May you enjoy your favorite foods with your favorite people, and of course, watch some fantastic Fourth fireworks.
What will you be doing and how will you be celebrating? Tell us below!
