Ask the Butcher: How do I host a grill party?

Our local friends at Madein Cookware asked us how we elevate the traditional BBQ. From burger toppings to cuts that feed a crowd, read all our answers here. To see our suggestions for the best grill cuts that will impress, see the excerpt below!

What's the best cut of meat to impress your guests this 4th of July?

The Picanha. You may recognize it as a tri-tip, but what makes this cut impressive and different is the generous fat cap. The picanha is famous at Brazilian steakhouses and grills up beautifully. I like it best served with a salsa verde but if you want to go more traditional, you can sprinkle on some yucca powder. It’s been a customer hit from day one since it feeds a crowd and keeps well for leftovers. Picanha tacos are my next day go-to. Plus, with Brazil in the World Cup, we have seen more customers trying it for the first time for watching parties!
