ok, so now that you have all this great meat, what are you gonna do with it? how should you prepare it? go get DRESSED TO GRILL and break out of a flavor rut by trying these tasty toppings, rubs and marinades.
Cocoa Rub: in a bowl, combine 2 tsp sugar, 2 tsp cocoa powder, 1 tsp dired thyme, ½ tsp each cumin, paprika and allspice and ¼ tsp each cinnamon and sea salt. rub over poultry, steak and pork.

Maple Marinade: in a large container, mix ¼ cup each pure maple syrup, extra-virgin olive oil and orange juice, ¼ cup balsamic vinegar and 2 minced garlic cloves. add fish or poultry and let soak for at least two hours.

Strawberry Salsa: thread 2 cups of (approximately 16-18) whole strawberries onto skewers and grill for 3-4 minutes. slice berries and toss with 1 seeded and minced jalapeno pepper, 1 tbsp minced ginger, cup chopped cilantro, juice of 1 lime and 1tsp honey. serve over fish, poultry and pork.
