Welcome to the new season of GrateTV. The days are getting longer and the weather is warming here in Birthplace of American Barbecue, Coastal South Carolina. We are lucky, we can usually grill year round, but this year a flurry of ice and snow has slowed the season a little. March is here and GrateTV is doing a classic twist on March Madness. We are celebrating classic BBQ side dishes and grilled starters with STARCH MADNESS!
To start the season we give tribute to the “Mac Daddy” of all the delicious sides, Macaroni and Cheese. According to the American Cheese Society Macaroni and cheese has remained on America’s top ten comfort foods for decades. In any given 12 week period, approximately one third of the American population will eat macaroni and cheese at least once. It’s the most searched food recipe on Food Network and ranks at the top of Google as well. For these reasons we consider Macaroni and Cheese the King of all starches and give homage to it by creating an epic GrateTV Mac Off!
