I live for barbeque season. There’s nothing like the satisfaction of getting that meat done just right, and nothing like the gratification that comes with sharing it with friends and family gathered on a sunny summer’s day.
When it comes to successful barbeque, I have a bit more skin in the game than most. You see, for me a quality eating experience at a family or community function isn’t just a personal goal – it’s a professional calling. My agency, USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS), is committed to helping meat and poultry producers market their high quality products to consumers across the nation (and the world), and quality is the name of our game.
