Despite these trying times, one thing hasn't changed: The joy and comfort that BBQ and grilling brings. Cook a meal for your family, share smoked ribs with your neighbor, and enjoy the simple pleasures of home cooking outdoors. Summer is in full swing, so it's time to relax and enjoy yourself. The Centers for Disease Control says you can safely host a cookout with guests 6 feet apart. Just remind people to wash their hands, and consider dishing out the food yourself so people aren't touching the same serving utensils. Single-use condiments aren't a bad idea other. And remember: July 4th Is National Barbecued Ribs Day!
