Grilling is a tradition in Memo’s family, so Memo and Kristin hosted a big bbq in their backyard the day before their wedding. The men started the grill up at 11 a.m., and six hours later, served up the best chicken, sausage and tri-tip ever.
Juicy? Check. Savory? Check. AMAZING?! Check. These are men who take their meat seriously.
