This summer 45% of Americans will use their grill at least one to two times per week, according to the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association. Whether it’s a neighborhood block party, poolside picnic, or backyard barbecue kicking off your July 4th celebration, adding Frank’s RedHot, certified OU kosher, can amp up the flavor and excitement.
