Heyyyyyy there friends! Here at Pig of the Month BBQ, you know we love our boozy breaks, especially when we're tending to those tasty meats on the grill. Those flames get HOT so we need a constant blur of cocktails to keep us cool and refreshed while we are hard at work during those backyard BBQ's. Every summer we look forward to packing our giant cocktail glasses with as much fresh fruit as we possibly can. There's no better time to take advantage of what's in season, and considering how much easier it is to make a cocktail versus baking or cooking with fresh fruit, we're alllllll over it. This week's roundup features the fruitiest cocktails around, perfect for adding to your happy hour lineup or even to just kick back with on a lazy Sunday afternoon. From mango to berries, watermelon to peaches, you get the best of all your fav summer fruits with this giant list of 15 killer cocktails. You might as well try them on so you can become a grill master AND master mixologist this summer. You've got big dreams, and we totally respect that. Stock up on the booze, because you know your friends and family will be knocking down your door the moment you start Snapchatting your mad cocktail skills.

Grilling 101: Everything You Need To Know About Smoking Woods (Including Food Pairings!) | Sauce + Style

To be a true grill master, you have to know your stuff. One of the big ones that you have to know comes down to your wood. Get your mind out of the gutter! We’re talking about smoking woods here. Come on now… ;) Woods can vary from mild to strong in flavor, and you have to know your woods to know what to cook with them. Some woods can overpower the food with their smoke and some woods aren’t strong enough to stand up to the cut of meat, like a big ol’ hearty brisket for example. Today we're sharing everything you need to know about smoking woods. Check out our comprehensive guide to smoking with all of our favorite smoking woods below... First up on the education list, it's time to get to know the flavor profiles! You have your mild fruit woods such as apple, peach, cherry and pear that are light, fruity and sweet. These tend to burn hot and can vary between slow and quick burning times. Take a step up the scale to hickory next. It’s sweet and strong, heart and burns hot and slow. Then you’ve got maple which is sweet and light, on the milder end of the scale and burns hot and slow. Pecan and oak are more medium smoking woods, burning hot and slow. Finally, we wrap our list up with mesquite which is the big kahuna, so to speak. It’s bold with lots of smoke, and burns hot and fast. Now that you’ve gotten the cliff notes to smoking woods, check out what to use them with this summer. From meat to poultry to fish, you've got the ultimate pairing list below to become a pro in no time. Share what you're planning on making next in the comments below!

Becoming a grill master is everyone’s goal during the summer. You want to be the man/gal with the plan when the grill is firing up and all those tasty meats, veggies and fruits are heading for those killer grill marks. If you are hoping to be a better griller this summer, the first thing you have to master is the heat of your grill. Every grill can be different, but the real key isn’t nailing a specific temperature, it’s getting the foods on the grill in the right order. Slamming some delicate fish on a blazing hot grill isn’t going to give you that flaky tastiness you want, just like throwing a steak on indirect heat isn’t going to deliver the juicy, tenderness. Feeling overwhelmed yet? No worries, we’ve got you covered. Here’s the complete guide to knowing exactly what temps the top grilling foods need to hit the grill at.

What to Eat AFTER Drinking All Night on St. Patrick’s Day

What to Eat After Drinking All Night on St. Patrick's Day | cakenknife.com

With St. Patrick’s Day coming up tomorrow, you all know what that means. It’s time to down some serious Jameson and green beer. Yesterday we told you all about how to try to avoid a hangover before you go out on an epic all-night drinking fest, but what about when you’re drunk, on your way home from the bars and feeling the starvation that drinking inevitably brings? You probably already have your very own hangover remedy (mine is a massive glass of water and ibuprofen the moment I wake up at 5am - my body hates me apparently too much to sleep in until 10am), but when you’re five sheets to the wind and on your way down… Well not everyone knows that you should be avoiding that greasy fast food like the freaking plague. Unless you like waking up feeling like hell and saturated with grossness.

What to Eat After Drinking All Night on St. Patrick's Day | cakenknife.com

Hunger always strikes when you’re out on the town and drunk as hell so you need something to get you along til morning when you wake up - hopefully without a hangover. Here’s the magical rundown of what to eat after drinking all night on St. Patrick's Day: - Miso Soup - yes, it’s a little weird and random, but miso soup actually rehydrates you. Plus it’s light enough to digest quick and can ward off those crazy hellish stomach pains the following morning - not to mention other, ahem, indigestion issues. - Lean meats - yes I know, you want that pizza and mozzarella sticks, but just say NO. Those won’t help you out as much as some lean protein like grilled chicken will to keep you from feeling nauseous. - French fries - not sold on the first two options? Fine, you can hit the fast food but stick with just the fries. Potatoes have potassium and sodium to help you balance out the crap that you just put into your body. It’ll also force you to drink more water! - Eggs - just like when you have a hangover, eggs can help before the hangover even starts. Eggs break down the toxins booze puts into your system that gives you that nasty hangover in the first place. - Water, all the water - Drink. Water. Can’t emphasize this enough. Water, especially coconut water, will get your head right. If you are really dedicated to not feeling pain, add a pinch of salt so it makes you pee less (thanks #science). Pop a multivitamin and then hit the hay folks.
