Grilling season is on! From Memorial Day through Labor Day, with Father’s Day and 4th of July sandwiched in between, you really don’t need an excuse to fire up the grill and enjoy fresh tastes all summer long.

Sam’s Club is helping kick off your sizzlin’ summer with their premium meat selection and backyard meal ideas inspired by pitmaster Troy Black, the Series Director of the Sam’s Club National BBQ Tour.

All Fired Up: Smokin’ Hot Secrets for the South’s Best BBQ features recipes and grilling techniques by Troy Black. Rubs, marinades and dips for beef, pork, poultry and seafood; side dishes like Grilled Tomatoes Caprese; and when you’re ready to chill from all that heat, try a cool Rosemary Lemonade Slushie.
