Grilling Guide
Handy app to help master the grill

To brine or not to brine? The Grill-It app can answer that for you in the clutch this weekend, whether you’re firing up steaks, pork chops, chicken, seafood, veggies or more. The app, a companion to Grilling Companion magazine, provides easy-to-follow, searchable recipes by category and updates automatically.

The app also lets you share and save your favorite recipes, so they’re always on hand for impromptu cookouts — when someone simply must have the recipe for those grilled lobster tails you served last week. The app is 99 cents for Android phones, the iPhone and iPod Touch, and $1.99 for the XL iPad version.
