    Get Grilling During National Beef Month!

    For the past few years, more and more promotions have begun during National Beef Month. The event, which is celebrated each May, coincides with the beginning of grilling season across much of the United States. Two of the month’s holidays, Mothers' Day (May 10) and Memorial Day (May 25), are among the most popular grilling days of the year.

    Before you whip out your fork, knife, and tongs this month, be sure to get your grill in shape for the season.

    Scratch off that charcoal grime! Clean the black buildup off of your grill before cooking anything this spring. Use a non-scratch sponge or brush to remove the grime from your grill's grates, burners, and interior. After all of the charcoal has been cleared away, give your grill a thorough cleaning with soap and water.
    Sponge off the exterior surfaces of your grill with soap and warm water.
    Be sure to scrub off your grill's grate with a grill brush after every grilling session. If you'd prefer to clean your grill the next day, consider spraying a vinegar-water mixture onto your grill's grate. After an hour, the grime should be soft enough to scrape off with ease.
    Check your grill's propane tank. Be sure the tank isn't leaking, and tighten up all of the hoses connecting the tank to the grill. Check your tank's gauge and refill the tank if necessary.

    Once your grill is in working order, you'll be ready to start grilling! Consider preparing hamburgers, beef hot dogs, or steaks to kick off National Beef Month at home.

    Beef: Fun Facts!

    Beef is an integral part of most individuals' diets. Even so, many of us know little about beef production and nutrition. The following are some interesting facts you may not have known about beef!

    Texas is the No. 1 state for beef production in the United States. The other top states for beef production are also located in the Midwest, including Missouri, South Dakota, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
    97% to 99% of beef cattle in the United States are raised on family farms.
    Two-thirds of the beef cuts sold at grocery stores are considered lean cuts of meat. This is the healthiest type of beef to consume.
    One serving of beef is only 3 ounces (the size of a deck of cards) and contains only 154 calories. Despite this small serving size, 3 ounces of beef contains half of the protein you need each day! To get an equal amount of protein out of other foods, you would need to consume 3 cups of quinoa (totaling 666 calories) or 6 tablespoons of peanut butter (totaling 564 calories). Beef is one of the best low-calorie sources of protein in the world.
