FOOD: BIG JIM BBQ TIPS
It’s a big weekend for BBQ-ing at home with family & friends. One of the Bay Areas top BBQ Chefs, JIM of BIG JIM BBQ has your cooking tips. His top tip: get fresh, local seafood or quality veggies & meat to begin with: “My favorite is tri-tip. Everyone should enjoy trip tip once a week. We marinate our tri-tip and smoke our tri-tip so it comes out nice and moist” says Jim. He has a pop-up launching at Tavern on 4th in San Raphael in June. The BBQ master will be sharing his cooking skills with me FRIDAY at 1 p.m. INSTAGRAM LIVE @liammayclem . Join us & learn from the BBQ pro.
