PIONEER TAVERN GROUP (FRONTIER, LOTTIE’S PUB, THE PONY)

Pioneer Tavern Group’s Chef Brian Jupiter Offers Grilling Tips

In honor of National Grilling Month this July, Pioneer Tavern Group Corporate Chef Brian Jupiter offers helpful grilling tips for the home cook. Jupiter is no stranger to the grill as he offers unique grilled proteins, vegetables and much more at his Chicago venues Frontier, Lottie’s Pub and The Pony.

Grilling Tips:
“I prefer to use charcoal or wood over gas while grilling. This imparts the food you are grilling with a better flavor.”

“Stay away from lighter fluid as it can leave grilled food tasting as such. Instead, try wood fire starters.”

“Use indirect cooking for larger cuts of meat. Try not to cook large proteins directly over a flame.”
