Mail-Order Food for the All-American Cookout
So I've got an interesting question to pose to you today. This summer, I'm celebrating a milestone birthday by throwing a real All-American Cookout for a number of my friends-- I did this last year and it was a real hit. The biggest hit of all was the Rendezvous pork ribs I had flown in-- I think folks liked having something fun, "foreign," and authentic. I'm considering expanding the concept to other great regional treats. I'm wondering what ideas you've got for foods that are tasty, interesting, summer-ish, and 100% American! Could do protein, sides, drinks, desserts, you name it. While I don't want to spend tons, I am willing to drop a little cash for something really great and authentic.
So that's it. What's YOUR favorite American cookout mail-order food secret?
Alaskan seafood. Grilled salmon! There are several sources, but I've had excellent results with Fisherman's Express. For steaks, my current favorite is Tallgrass; juicy, grass fed, no hormones, etc.
You can get some truly incredible meat and/or wild game (quail, pheasant, oregon fallow venison, roosevelt elk, bison, etc) from NickyUSA out of portland,OR (503.234.4263) i think they have a website of the same name but too much unique stuff to list here.
