Lyndon B. Johnson threw the first White House barbecue to feature “Texas-style” ribs, and Jimmy Carter hosted a “pig-pickin’” for 500 people.

There’s an Actual Way to Measure BBQ Heat With Your Hand.

 

 

 

Next time you float your hand over your grill, do it with a purpose. If you really need to know how hot the grill is, hold your palm five inches above the grill and count the number of seconds before you feel the urge to yank it away.
