Great ideas! I'll let my husband know since he does all the grilling.

I have a terrific Burger recipe, it has won a contests in my country Costa Rica, I call it "the double Agent Burger"... because there is "an infiltrated" in the patty:

50% - 50% ground beef and pork.
1 slide of white bread (cut round with a glass) then you soaked the bread on brawn gravy, then you add it in the middle of two thin patties making one thick patty with the "infiltrated moist agent" in the middle.

then you top it with caramelized onions and roasted bell peppers with more gravy as a dressing, use a mild cheese such as Swiss, so it doesn’t compete with the meaty flavor of the patty and the gravy. Let me know if I have to send the full recipe, you guys have the best Zinfandel.

Muscato is my favorite wine, but because of the sweetness I'm sure it has more calories than a less sweet wine. Is there any wine out there without the high sugar content that still tastes sweet?

like to check out the tapes.

I have found the perfect wine! Add a dash to marinade steaks in! Excellent to add merlot to gravy broth for an added delicious flavor!
