Summers filled with parties, cook outs and bonfires are my favorite. The weather, the amazing food, family and friends. Is it just me or does everything taste just a little better in the summer?

To make the most of your time with family and friends, I’ve got a huge piece of advice. Keep the food simple and delicious! We can’t wait until you try these amazing Bold Beer Bratwurst Skewers on the Grill.

Suppose we should have called them Smoked Beans???
