Meet Your Two New Favorite Grilling Recipes

July  1, 2018

And then there were two.

A couple weeks ago, we told you all about our grilling contest’s top five recipes. (We absolutely love grilling—we just wrote a whole book about it!) Though our five recipe finalists used the same appliance, they could hardly be more different: a veggie pasta and steak sandwich, blueberry BBQ-sauced chicken and miso ginger pork skewers, even a coconutty dessert.

We shouted their praises from the rooftops (or, our eighth-floor office, same thing), then told you, our community, to test away, while we re-tested again and again. So, after lots of cooking and eating, reading and reviewing, talking and talking, we’ve narrowed it to down to our two finalists.

Head over to the recipe pages to read more about them, then hightail over to our contest page to vote. You have from now until July 8 at 12 PM EST to make your voice click count. Then, on July 9, we’ll announce the winner.

We can’t wait to see who it is.
