Cinco de Mayo - Grill Masters Club Edition
Cinco de Mayo is a holiday that commemorates the Mexican army's victory over France at the Battle of Puebla on May 5th, 1862. Although it is not widely celebrated in Mexico, it has become a significant day in Mexican-American culture, particularly in the United States.
No Cinco de Mayo celebration is complete without delicious food. While traditional Mexican dishes like tacos, enchiladas, and tamales are all great options, nothing says fiesta quite like the smell of freshly grilled food. Grilling is the perfect way to bring friends and family together to enjoy the holiday.
Mexican BBQ techniques and traditions have a long and rich history that dates back to pre-Hispanic times. Grilling was a common method of cooking for the indigenous peoples of Mexico, and they developed various techniques for preparing and seasoning meats, fish, and vegetables. After the arrival of the Spanish in the 16th century, European grilling traditions merged with indigenous techniques to create a unique fusion of flavors and styles. Today, Mexican BBQ is characterized by the use of spicy marinades and rubs, slow-cooked meats like
barbacoa and cochinita pibil, and an emphasis on communal eating and celebration.
