Common Cuts of Pork
Pigs are the source of many delicious cuts, including bacon. Since the animals are now bred to be lean, the meat is higher in protein and about 30 percent lower in calories, saturated fat, and cholesterol than the pork produced in the 1970s.

15 Minutes to a Clean Grill

Get your grill looking spic-and-span before the season starts.

  • Minute 1: Make sure that all dials are in the off position. While the grill is slightly warm, turn off and disconnect the propane tank.
  • Minute 2: Wearing work gloves, remove the grates and the metal plates under them. Place in a bucket of hot water mixed with dish soap.
  • Minutes 3 and 4: Loosely cover the heating elements with a big piece of foil to protect them. With the grill brush, scrub the underside of the hood. (That residue that looks like peeling paint is actually a harmless buildup of carbon from grease and smoke.)
