  • Clean your grill’s grate with scrunched up aluminum foil, then rub it with half an onion to disinfect and add flavor to food.Summer Barbeque in Door County
  • Prior to cooking, wipe down the grate with cooking oil to make it easier to clean when you’re done.
  • Use two skewers in kabobs instead of one to prevent individual pieces from rotating as you flip them on the grill.
  • Cook fish filets on a bed of sliced lemons — it boosts flavor and saves on clean-up.
  • If you’re having guests, cook meat half-way done in the oven  efore they arrive to save time on the grill.
  • Put a thumbprint in your burgers before they cook to keep them from rising. Place ice chips in the indention to add moisture to the meat.
  • Let cooked meat rest 5-10 minutes under a foil tent before serving to keep in flavor and moisture.

 

 

Celebrate the National Parks

Celebrate Our National Parks!

August 25 marks the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service (NPS). Created to protect the country’s national parks and monuments, today the NPS oversees more than 400 sites, including parks, monuments, battlefields, historic sites, seashores, recreation areas, and scenic rivers and trails. In honor of its centennial celebration, here are fascinating facts about some NPS sites.

  • The first national park was Yellowstone (WY), created in 1872. The 2.2 million-acre park includes 10,000 thermal features, such as geysers, hot springs and mud pots.
  • America’s first national monument was Devils Tower (WY), designated in 1906. The tall geological formation is considered sacred by many Native American tribes.
  • Great Smoky Mountains National Park (NC, TN) was named for its blue haze, the result of evaporation of water from the lush vegetation.
  • From the 1880s to the 1940s, several Major League Baseball teams held spring training at Hot Springs National Park (AR), where the hot spring water was used to soothe sore muscles after practice.
  • Crater Lake National Park (OR) features the deepest lake in the U.S. at 1,943 feet. Formed by a volcano collapse, the lake is one of the 10 deepest in the world.
  • The largest NPS site is Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve (AK) at 13.2 million acres. The smallest site is Thaddeus Kosciuszko National Memorial (PA) at 0.02 acres.
  • The most visited park in 2015 was Great Smoky Mountains with 10.7 million visitors, followed by Grand Canyon National Park (AZ) with 5.5 million. 
  • More than 307 million people visited national parks in 2015

Summertime Strikes a Chord

Summer is a time for fun — a time for grilling outside, splashing in a pool or dancing the night away, all while listening to your favorite songs. Music has always had a strong hold on us. Combined with the hot, wild energy of summer, music can help create amazing stories and memories. There’s always that one song that, when you hear it, brings back memories of summers past. 

So why, and how, do we form such strong connections with music? Turns out, it’s all in your head. 

According to MentalFloss.com, music can actually flood our brains with dopamine, the chemical that regulates emotional responses and pleasurable experiences. Specifically, it hits the part of the brain that is activated by motivation and reward. One side effect of this dopamine release is “the chills” — getting goosebumps and feeling “tingly” sensations when listening to certain songs. 

Essentially our brains are always trying to predict what’s coming next, and when that specific part of a song arrives, the brain rewards us with feelings of pleasure. This makes your favorite songs from your past summers all the more powerful when you listen to them.
