Take It Outside BBQ Tasting Party 2014 #BBQTasteParty

Blue Mountain Summit Patio
Summertime is the perfect time for outdoor fun! Take It Outside BBQ Tasting Party 2014 held on the patio at Blue Mountain Summit Restaurant was an opportunity to enjoy great tasting slider rolls topped with shredded beef, pulled pork, turkey London broil, juicy organic chicken. Mouth-watering sauces tickled our tastebuds! Of course, what’s a BBQ without sweet tender corn on the cob and pure creamy butter!

Everyone was encouraged to try as many items as they wanted. Most guests tasted everything!
The first thing everyone wanted was the Newhard’s Corn. I grilled it in the husk to give it a slightly smoky flavor.

Kerrygold butter was on hand to top those tender ears with creamy goodness! Look at that dark yellow color you can only get from grass fed cows!

We didn’t stop with the shredded meats.

Mr. Bill’s chicken from Bell & Evans was great alone and also tasted delicious with Gourmet Warehouse BBQ sauces, Golden Carolina and Cherry Jalapeno and Stubb’s Sweet and Spicy.

Mr. Bill’s Turkey London Broil is juicy and tender. He marinates it in a soy base. Delicious! I tried it with the Cherry Chipotle. Amazing together!

Everyone raved about the Arpricot Jalapeno Chicken Sausage from Mr. Bill’s! Packed with apricots and dotted with jalapeno peppers!

    Just the word butter makes me smile. I was rsaeid on fat-free margarine and diet coke, and the introduction of healthy fats into my body over the past 6 years has been life-saving, to say the least!!!!!!
