Next Theme: BBQ Throwdown!

Now that we have tackled healthy South Beach cooking and not-so-healthy breakfast foods, it’s time to test our BBQ cooking skills!

Easy you may think. However, our throwdown chefs have, time and time again, stepped up the culinary bar to the point that each dish is a little piece of gourmet heaven! So, what to make then? It has to be original, right? Maybe revisiting a BBQ classic in a completely fresh way is the answer. OR, perhaps a new addition to our BBQ palate will be the winner… Only time will tell. Set for July 10th, this throwdown is sure to be lengendary! Any suggestions for the bonus point? Let us know!

In the meantime, enjoy these BBQ inspirations!
