Before I settle down to recommend a menu for you for The Fourth of July. . .I absolutely must remind y'all of something we all know already but sometimes fail to do!
If you're gonna light up firecrackers, sparklers, aerial displays, and whatever on "The Fourth," please be exceedingly cautious of those things and use extreme safety practice, okay?
Before I got into cooking and fishing and Naturally N'Awlins, I spent a considerable amount of time working the Emergency Room at the old Charity Hospital and saw way too many missing fingers and burned hands than I care to remember. So if you're gonna get fireworks to go along with the grilled chicken, barbecued ribs, and potato salad. . .be super careful. Especiallyif you'll be imbibing! --Frank Davis
