PieHole does not abide by the belief that there is a grilling season, per se.
The presence of snow, rain or an arctic blast simply means we adjust our wardrobe along with our cooking time while monitoring for flare-ups enroute to the perfect 45-degree grill marks.
That said, this weekend’s weather should allow for shorts and t-shirts while manning the grill. And that means it’s as good a time as any to check in with a few of the Green’s butchers about their favorite under-appreciated – and more affordable – cuts of meat for grilling.
We’ll begin with Stew Goldstein of Monmouth Meats in Red Bank.
