Around the World on the Kettle: USA

In our Around the World tour of International Cuisine on the Kettle, of course we had to come back home to the good ol' USA in honor of patriotic holiday celebrations from Sea to Shining Sea!  

Thankfully, this year our gatherings can be a little more normal, though we’ve got a menu that’s anything but! And on the Kettle, your Grillmaster is no longer relegated to an off corner, he’s center stage with all the fun!
