The Great Outdoors



[dropcap class=”kp-dropcap”]A[/dropcap]merica has many traditions, but few are more classic than preparing and cooking grilled food. While we celebrate freedom on Fourth of July, we also celebrate our ability to choose specific barbecue sauce, spices, meat choices, methods of preparation and the use of various “herbs.” Best of all—it is all delicious. Celebrate your Independence Day the right way with these American barbecue recipes, topped through-and-through with cannabis-infused goods. Be sure to exercise extreme caution when cooking with high-heat tools like a grill while consuming cannabis, and you’ll be able to enjoy many of the freedoms that this great country provides.
