Have a Food Safe holiday

Watch this Video
Before you fire up the Grill
for Holiday Weekend Festivities

This weekend, as we all get ready to party and cook with friends and family, be alert to the importance of Food Safety. I recently posted a few relevant links (shown below) on Twitter. The instant read thermometers I referred to, don't cost much and work great for temperature checking. Chefs usually carry one (or two) in their chef coat pockets, home cooks should too.

Check out this video, it makes the point and at the same time will bring a smile to your face, "Don't get Sicky Wit it." Be sure to turn up the volume.
