Will you have a Memorial Day BBQ today?

It’s Memorial Day! In other words, it’s time to BBQ! Memorial Day, July 4th and Labor Day are the three most popular days for BBQing in the U.S. July 4th is the most popular, followed by Memorial Day, then Labor Day.

And what about the food? The most popular Memorial Day food prepared on the grill is burgers, followed by steak, hot dogs and chicken. For sides, grilled corn is most popular, followed by potatoes and other veggies.

So, what’s on your grill today? Are you having people over to BBQ or are you going somewhere? Maybe you’re BBQing, but just for your partner or partner and kid(s).

Please tell us in the poll below, then leave a comment and tell us what you’re having!

We actually ate a great meal at a teeny country restaurant and then drove to town to watch the new Top Gun movie. It is a GREAT movie!!!! (I’m a tough reviewer by the way). Rated PG-13 for one f-bomb, and a very brief, innocuous and fully clothed scene with two stars cuddling and talking in bed.

We grilled some steaks on Sunday, but Monday we went to breakfast near the campground and went back to clean and pack out. Will hoist a beer with dinner tonight to my comrades that never made it home.

We have a couple of yard projects that we plan to at least begin today, if not also complete. We also will bathe my mother’s unsocialized dog. Would that count as celebrating? 😉 Oh well, didn’t think so. 🙂

I might cook something out but a Robin has a nest next to the grill. Don’t need to disturb the pretty mama.

This is a day to remember fallen soldiers and deceased loved ones, not to have a BBQ!!!

We agree. We will not be having a BBQ, but are having a pot luck dinner at the local VFW with family and friends.

Agreed! Those we lost shall not be forgotten, nor their deeds be un-done. Our gratitude to all who heeded the call to serve and to those they left behind so that we may live in freedom!

I have a father four brothers and one sister and several nephews that served. My wife’s father brother and nephew also served. We gather to celebrate those who are here and those who have passed. I’m sorry if our choice of food offends you. We raise a glass and have a moment of silence in the memory of those who could not be with us ! They cover WWl, WWll, Korea, Viet Nam, and the Mid East. Happy Trails

We are on our way home in the MC , will be traveling the next 1200 miles.
Our tow car transmission over heated on this trip in our Lincoln and it caused it to melt the bottom on the transmission bottom casing. Never have had this happen, been towing this car for 6 years. Any thought on why this happened?
Anyway we are having it towed home on a transport.
My dad served in the Air Force for 26 years. Thank all service men and women for your service.

No, I don’t feel it appropriate to celebrate over the loss of brave people who sacrificed their lives for this country. As far as I’m concerned this is a day of somber remembrance, not a day to celebrate.

It’s spring in Denver–90 degrees on May 19, heavy, wet snow on May 20-21, 3 days of rain over Memorial Day weekend to ruin the camping/grilling, and Trail Ridge Road in RMNP opened on Friday then closed on Sunday due to heavy snow!

Among other things. I did the ride to remember in DC yesterday, and last night I started slow smoking A pork butt. Today I will be going to my American Legion. I have family visiting from out of town.

Not this year. Everything is just SO expensive now! Also, many items are not available nor on the store shelves anymore…

I cannot understand how we as a nation have become so dependent on other countries. How did we lose our self-sufficiency? I grew up where we raised and canned most of our food and made many items we used. There used to be plenty in the grocery store and never lacked for anything until recently. I feel like I am back in a third world country again.
I want to thank all the veterans for freedom to speak my mind.

I agree however depending on our adversaries for way too many items that support our quality of life. Look how many drugs are produced in China and India with limited quality control!

I would be willing to pay extra for products actually made here- not assembled here.

Excellent thought, but be careful what you wish for. That “extra” you are willing to pay may be several hundred percent “extra.”
It is a real shame that we can have all the parts of a sneaker, send them to a foreign country, have them assembled and shipped back for far less than it would cost to do all the work here.

And do we really need all the stuff we have or do we just have it because it is cheap. Growing up there never were any self storage places to put all the stuff you didn’t have room for at home.
