On the Keto Diet? Your Grill or Smoker Can Help

On the Keto Diet? Your Grill or Smoker Can Help

This past holiday season, you couldn’t lob a meatball across a room without hitting a partisan of the Ketogenic diet. So when CNN announced January 3 it was among the most-searched for diet-related terms in 2018, we weren’t surprised. In fact, we were intrigued as we sometimes receive emails and messages on social media from people who’ve intentionally lost weight while stepping up their grilling game. After doing a bit of research, we discovered many of the recipes we’ve published...

And an unexpected but much appreciated honor for a book that wasn’t supposed...

There’s a new grilling method you’ve probably never heard of. The secret? A cold grate.
