Some of you have been asking what grill I use – this is the grill. It is smaller, portable, quick, efficient and perfect for 2 people. Many have been skeptical, but end up telling me how much they love it. During the winter, I’ll use a cast-iron grill pan, on my stovetop. I also use this stainless GRILL BASKET constantly- great for grilling smaller veggies.
If looking for a good source of organic, free-range chicken, grass-fed meats with no antibiotics, I highly recommend Butcher Box! You can customize your box and the delivery timing.
