Oh, hello, summertime! CCA Maryland wants to share another one of our favorite reasons to get outside this summer; to fire up the Traeger Grill and make some delicious eats to share with friends and family. And with the help of our Summer Grilling Series sponsors, we are hooking you up with the recipes that are hitting our plates this season.


Local Tomato & Cucumber Salad Slice tomato into thick slices, and shingle them on a plate. Slice the cucumber thinly, lengthwise and bunch between the tomatoes. Slice the red onion thinly and stuff between the cucumber & tomatoes. Drizzle with EVOO and sprinkle with salt & pepper.

Smashed Red Potatoes with Bacon & Butter Boil potatoes for 10 minutes or until tender. On a non-stick baking sheet, smash potatoes with a fork. Add 2Tbsp of butter in flakes on top of potatoes. Broil for 10 minutes or until browned and crispy. Add cooked bacon. Season with salt & pepper.

Balance the smoke with a Cool dollop of Lemon & Dill Sour Cream Combine 8oz of sour cream with 1 Tbsp Lemon Juice and 3 sprigs of chopped dill.

Pairs well with: 420 Strain G13 SweetWater IPA
