It’s Independence Day, which means that it’s time to get together and do what we as Americans do best – fire up the grill. We’re talking burgers, barbecue, steaks; the works. Food has a way of tasting just a little bit better with the complement of smoky flavor, the sear of a grill, and good company in the backyard.
To help those planning to man the grill this holiday, the editorial team at Bon Appétit Magazine — our source for thoughtful insight on all things food related — put together The Ultimate Grilling Guide. The guide features everything from chicken recipes to side dishes, to pointers on grilling a whole fish.
Besides grilling on Independence Day, we couldn’t think of anything more iconic of summer than a speeding 1950’s Chris Craft boat, which is why we include The Garda shirt from our most recent Short Run collection in this week’s Style File. Rounding out The Grill Master, we tossed in a bottle of Anchor Summer Ale from Anchor Brewing, America’s oldest craft brewery, some American made baseball equipment, and lastly, a vintage zippo lighter for lighting a few Roman candles after dusk.
To everyone out there, we wish you a Happy Fourth!
