Summer Grilling Recipes for Father’s Day

by Hickerson Brothers on June 16, 2017

Father’s Day is here in Virginia, and it’s time to bring out the grill! Father’s Day is about honoring your father, and what better way to do that than grilling some food and getting the family together? Throwing a cookout on Father’s Day is expected, with your dad often leading as the grill-master. A cookout usually means finding the right recipes for the event in question. Luckily, the staff at Hickerson Brothers are more than just trained and trusted electricians; some of us are fathers who also happen to be grill pros . We decided to offer up a few of our favorite Father’s Day-centric summer grilling recipes.
