Minneapolis Convention Center
The 2nd Annual Minnesota Monthly GrillFest is all about teaching you how to grill like a master. The festival showcases the latest grill models, barbecuing techniques, and succulent barbecue recipes, arming you with everything you need to wow your family and friends’ taste buds. Oh and, you’ll get to chow down on samples from local barbecue gurus and wash down the sauce with swigs of beer, all to a soundtrack of live local music.
Vendors pour samples of Goose Island and Schell beer and summery wines from Barefoot and Amara, perfect for pairing with bites from Butcher & the Boar and Down Under BBQ. Grilling exhibitions from the Minnesota Pork Board and The Home Depot demonstrate mouth-watering recipes and grilling techniques, such as searing perfect cross-hatch grill marks and asking the grill nicely to heat up to the proper temperature. Festivalgoers also gain access to discounts on grills and grilling equipment, so you can take what you’ve learned to your own backyard.
