This is my favorite time of year.  As much as everyone loves summer cookouts, I like fall cookouts even better. I’m a year round grilling kind of guy.  As crazy as it may sound, I also look forward to a certain fall cookout at work.  There’s a group that we frequently cater for and every September they have a cookout as part of their board meeting.  While off-site catering can present many challenges, this is a really fun group to cook for. It’s a chance to enjoy a cool evening cooking outside with some of my team.  The menu isn’t fancy, but we like to have some fun with it.  Sometimes the easier menus are also the more fun ones. Here’s what we’ll be doing this week.
