Everyone makes them. Everyone breaks them. I'm talking, of course, about New Year's resolutions, but if you're a die-hard barbecuer or griller, you have a leg up on the population at large. Unlike starting an exercise regimen or boosting your savings for retirement, setting new goals for barbecue virtually guarantees you'll follow through. Here are my six top barbecue resolutions for 2014. For additional resolutions, plus my personal resolutions for the coming year, check out my blog post on BarbecueBible.com.
- Resolve to up your game at the grill. If you grill on gas, try charcoal, and if you normally grill with briquettes or instant light, try grilling on natural lump charcoal. If you're a charcoal griller already, try grilling with wood.
