Grilled Beer Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños & A Grill Giveaway!
I’ve made no secret of my love for grilling.
Once the weather breaks and I’m able to do so without the threat of rain, grilling becomes my go-to cooking method. I’ve even moved my Char-Broil grill across three states because I wasn’t able to part with it. Four years and three moves later it still grills like a champ.
I know the sad face reactions that go on when I give you a grilled item and you don’t own a grill. So this is for you. Or your dad, since we both know he’d love a new grill for Father’s Day. I’m giving you a beautiful, brand new Char-Broil grill with the hope that you’ll fall as in love with yours as I am with mine.
You also won’t have to decide between a gar or a charcoal grill since this grill does both, which will also either stop the debates on which is better, or fuel them (pun intended).
Here it is, my gift to you: A recipe for Grilled Beer Cheese Stuffed Bacon Wrapped Jalapeños, a Gas2Coal Combo Char-Broil grill, and both of my cookbooks, autographed if you’d like.
Just promise me that you’ll make some beer food once you get it, and send me a picture.
