Matt Dunigan: The Grill Master is coming to Cornwall

Get ready for some BBQ and Sports knowhow folks, Matt Dunigan, CFL Hall of Fame inductee and host of Road Grill on The Food Network will be in Cornwall on May 9 and 10, 2012.

Matt Dunnigan shares his love of the flame broiled as he and his team travel to find the best summer celebrations (related to one of our favorite foodie sports: BBQing!) His take on this culinary art is: simple, tasty and Oh so good! (and he does it in front of a live audience). We really like his motto “Have flame, will travel!”

The recipes featured on his show are just amazing! Stuff like: Smoked Shrimp BLTs, Hearty Beet and Fennel Salad and Smoked Rack of Pork with Black Cherry Sauce just to name a few.
