The Cooking Channel host gives his advice for the holiday
Bobby Deen has been working on making recipes healthier on his Cooking Channel show Not My Mama's Meals, but that doesn't mean he can't go all out for a holiday as big as Memorial Day.
We recently caught up with the host and restaurateur at an event celebrating veterans in honor of the holiday weekend, and got his tips for hosting. As he is from Savannah, Ga., he suggested we all try a traditional Low Country boil, which is great for a crowd of any size. He even divulged a few of his healthier tips, including the fact that he often uses beets in his red velvet cupcakes both for the color and the nutritional value.
For more, watch the full video above, and if you want to check out some of Deen's recipes yourself, you can find them on Kenmore's recipe site, Cookmore. But most importantly, make sure to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend!

19 Memorial Day Grilling Tips from Your Favorite Famous Chefs
Memorial Day is almost upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about firing up the grill for the first official cookout of summer. These tips and tricks from some of the nation’s top chefs will save you time and effort, so you can actually enjoy your backyard bash!
1. Crank Up the Grill Well in Advance
Preheating the grill is critical to achieving that smoky, savory sear on big chunks of meat. “Always make sure the fire is hot. For gas grills, turn it on about 15 minutes before you’re ready to cook. If you’re using charcoal, light it about 45 minutes ahead of time to let the coals burn down,” says Vanderlei Melchior, head gaucho chef for the upscale Brazilian steakhouse chain Fogo de Chão. (You can also hack your gas grill to burn hotter.)

And you’ll definitely want to know when to use the lid on your grill.
2. Hack Your Cooler
“Don’t forget that your cooler can double as an insulated ‘warmer.’ Use it to keep things warm in transit to a cookout,” says Sunny Anderson, celebrity chef, cookbook author, and co-host of “The Kitchen” on Food Network.
3. Form the Perfect Burger
If you’re going to serve hamburgers (because let’s face it, they’re pretty much the quintessential Memorial Day grub!), make sure you do it right. “It’s important to know how to choose the right burger for grilling. It should be at least 80/20 lean to fat ratio ground chuck. Too much fat can cause it to shrink,” says Jon Lemon, Bareburger culinary director. “Form into 6-oz. patties and press a ½ inch dimple into the middle of the patty so it keeps its form.”
4. Invest in a Meat Thermometer
Using a meat thermometer to ensure your cuts are perfectly cooked doesn’t make you less of a grill master. “Purchase a digital thermometer. You’ll be more confident when grilling and won’t waste any money on over- or under-cooked protein,” says Geoffrey Zakarian, chef and partner of Point Royal at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Fla.

This digital model is beloved by chefs and home cooks alike.
5. Spray Your Meat
That’s right—filling a spray bottle with marinade or loose barbecue sauce is an easy and mess-free way to glaze your meat more evenly, says Michael Schulson, founder and CEO of Schulson Collective restaurant group.
IDesign Metro 12-Ounce Aluminum Spray Bottle, $4.99 from The Container Store
Not all plastic bottles are food-grade, so we'd go with shatter-proof aluminum.
6. Elevate the Classics
There’s nothing wrong with a plain ol’ hot dog with mustard—but putting a new twist on Memorial Day favorites is sure to wow your guests. “Adding unexpected flavors and ingredients always impresses and kicks a dish up a notch,” says Ayesha Curry, chef and cookbook author.
7. Grill in Sessions
“To spend as much time with your guests as you can, get some veggies on the grill before they arrive. I love making grilled veggie salads, which you can build with seasonal ingredients such as corn or zucchini and prepare ahead of time,” says Ryan Farr of San Francisco’s 4505 Burgers and BBQ, named “Hottest Barbecue Joint in America” by Zagat.
And even if you can’t have guests this year, it’s still a nice way to make the most of firing up your grill!
8. Let Your Protein Rest
“One of the top mistakes when grilling any meat or fish is not letting it come to room temperature before starting. This ensures more even cooking and the juiciest results—just don’t leave it out longer than two hours,” says Anderson.
9. Opt for Sliders
Grilling up miniature sliders instead of regular-sized burgers will allow you (and any guests) to sample all your summery mains and sides without filling up on any one thing. “Sliders are so great because there are simple and easy options you can throw together. For a break from beef, buy a pre-roasted rotisserie chicken, pull apart the meat, toss it with barbecue sauce, and top it with coleslaw or jalapeños,” says Beau Houck, executive chef of Noi Due Carne on New York City’s Upper West Side.
10. Make a Shopping List
Look at your recipes beforehand and shop according to the exact amounts you’ll need—this will prevent you from wasting money and food by overbuying. “Buying pre-packaged perishable items often leads to extra ingredients that wind up going to waste because they don’t keep,” says Stephanie Izard, a Food Network Iron Chef, founder of several Chicago area restaurants, and spokesperson for Morton Salt’s Erase Food Waste campaign.
11. Make a Batch of Drinks
Mixing a cocktail or sangria in bulk is a little more fun than a cooler full of beer or wine. “Batching cocktails allows you to spend more time entertaining your guests, but it’s very important to know your proportions before mixing everything together,” says Mo Ghanem, brand manager for the tequila brand Riazul. Multiply the amounts for one drink by the number of guests you expect (or the number of beverages you plan to enjoy yourself).
12. Keep the Kids Happy
“Create a play area where the little ones can all hang out. Fill it with crafts, toys, and games so they have a dedicated area, just for them,” says Curry. “This is always my go-to so the adults can mingle.” And if it’s just your usual quarantine crew, this will still let you enjoy some (mostly) uninterrupted time chilling on your patio.
13. “Grease” the Grill with an Onion
That’s right—rubbing half an onion down the length of the grill will prevent meat from sticking, says Adrian Davila of Davila’s BBQ in Seguin, Texas and third-generation pitmaster.
14. Utilize Skewers
Stacking protein and veggies on skewers makes for a fun presentation and easy way to serve a variety of flavors—plus, you don’t have to worry about smaller cuts of meat or vegetables falling through the grill grate. “My Jerk Rubbed Chicken Skewers with Mango Salsa is great as a side dish or main, and it comes together so quickly,” says Curry.
BearMoo Kabob Skewers, set of 10 for $19.49 on Amazon
Way better than the wooden skewers you inevitably forget to soak ahead of time.
But skewers aren’t just for the usual meaty kebabs! Try our Grilled Greek Salad Skewers recipe (which include some halloumi cheese and rest on a bed of grilled romaine). Or skewer and grill fruit for dessert.
15. Offer Interesting Vegetarian Options
Don’t forget about your herbivore guests! (And again, even if there are no guests, you might need to get flexible if meat is scarce at the store right now…) In either case, it’s easy to make satisfying side dishes and mains that are meat-free.
For something besides veggie or pasta salads, Houck suggests grilling up a hearty olive oil-brushed bread and serving with a nice cheese (such as burrata or fresh mozzarella), tomatoes, and fresh basil. Or you can grill pizza.
16. Do Dessert on the Grill
As long as it’s fired up, grill seasonal fruits for an easy dessert. “Pears, peaches, and seasonal fruits actually sweeten up once grilled—just add ice cream!” says Anderson.
17. Practice Safety First!
“Place your grill at least 15 feet away from your house and always have a fire extinguisher on hand,” says Anderson.
18. Pay Attention to Marbling
If you want a premium cut of meat, look for consistent marbling, red color, and don’t be afraid to ask your grocery store’s butcher for advice,” says Davila.

19. Hack Your Skewers
To keep your kebabs from rolling and flipping all over the grill—which can lead to uneven cooking—use two skewers per serving, says Schulson. This helps holds them steady.
And to prevent accidentally stabbing yourself in the hand when assembling them, try this trick:
Paula Deen Is Selling Her Signature "House Seasoning" for $15
There's no doubt that celebrity chef Paula Deen knows her way around the kitchen. We'd be quick to take any cooking advice she might have to offer&mdashincluding how to season our food. But one of her signature goods recently caught our eye because it seems pretty overpriced.
If you've ever watched Paula in action on TV or followed one of her recipes, you may have noticed she frequently uses her trademark "house seasoning." Fans looking to mimic her signature flavor can even purchase the spice online at Paula Deen's General Store. We have no doubt this ingredient makes a delicious addition to any recipe, but we're also wondering why a mixture of salt, pepper, and garlic powder costs $15 for two 6.7-ounce bottles. Yes, you read that correctly. She's charging FIFTEEN dollars for a combination of arguably the three most basic spices out there.
In any case, it's currently out of stock, but you can rest assured that it's super easy to recreate Paula's secret seasoning at home (and you may not even have to visit the grocery store, assuming you already have salt, pepper, and garlic in your pantry). Here are the exact measurements:

Five Tailgating Tips
I know it’s only August but the NFL preseason has started, which means everyone will need new Tailgating Ideas for this year's season! People ask me why I go down to Browns games when I have to get up early, fight the crowd, pay for parking, etc. when I can watch the game from the comfort of my home on HDTV. Easy answer. I go for the tailgate party and stay for the game.
A good tailgate shouldn’t be stressful but it does require some planning. Here are 5 tailgating ideas that I think will help.
- Control the crowd. Some people are comfortable with an “open” tailgate with everyone welcome. Most people would prefer to know how many mouths they have to feed. You can mark out an area by how you arrange your chairs. In a circle means it’s a closed event. Otherwise expect some drop-ins. Another option is to let everyone in but charge them. My son goes to a huge tailgate party that charges $20/man. He gets to eat and drink with no hassle for the cost of two stadium beers. Everyone is happy.
- Make sure everyone can find you. Hang a banner, pennants or Mylar football balloons. If you are a tailgate warrior that parties before every home game consider something more permanent like a giant team flag or maybe a life sized cutout to mark the location. Not only will your guests find you, but other tailgaters will envy you.
- Pack key items that everyone forgets. Chairs for the older folks, corkscrews, bottle openers, tons of paper towels, and garbage bags are some things that are easy to forget and are very helpful.
- Pack toys: A football to toss around, a Frisbee or even a whiffle ball and bat can all be great fun. A lot of people are bringing Cornhole games but they take up a lot of space.
- Clean as you go. Bring plenty of garbage bags and make sure people use them. This isn’t only the right thing to do it’s the smart thing to do. Trust me. Driving over beer bottles can ruin a Sunday afternoon at the stadium.

This is a different recipe for pulled pork. I always make pulled pork for company since it is a favorite. The only thing I would change about this recipe is to rub the spices on the pork before putting it in the slow cooker and then covering with the liquids. I have never used Sprite before but it will probably add a nice touch. Thank you.
I'm not a sandwich lover but I was attracted to the recipe because of the pulled pork ingredient. I've always been a lover of pulled pork whether eaten by itself or on a floss (bread topped with pulled pork). I still wanna try Paul Deen's Favorite Pulled Pork Sandwich. Cheers.
It's nice to find yet another pulled pork recipe with new ingredients. The use of Sprite is new to me, though I think I came across a recipe a while ago that used a can of Coke. The idea of msdeb21 to use root beer was also new to me. I wonder what it would be like if you used one of the hard (alcoholic) root beers for it. I love pulled pork sandwiches and this is a fun recipe to try the next time I dig out the slow cooker and make some pulled pork.
Msdeb21, I'm so happy to have found a recipe for pulled pork! I have never made it and didn't know how to make it. It certainly looks delicious. I was surprised to see a can of sprite used. I would imagine that a cider should taste good too as a substitute? I think cider and pork well together.
I'm so happy to find another great recipe for pulled pork. The recipe I usually use is just pork with root beer, cooking in the slow cooker all day. I can't wait to try this one. It sounds like it's sweet and tangy.It will be a great dinner with coleslaw.
This looks so good. I love pulled pork, and this easy video is great for showing just how to do everything.
