Please put away the smart phone and light up the grill; a recipe for co-worker camaraderie and conversation can be a perennial event throughout the year.
Here at APC our grill has become an ingredient for our health, fundraisers, celebrations, and the overall need to gather. People open their outside doors and windows to let the smell of charcoal permeate throughout the office atmosphere. For real that actually happens, and they ask what is being grilled and when will it be done.
Bratwurst, hot dogs, chicken, tenderloin, or whatever the request is, our agency tries to keep within foundation of grilling experiences of all. Folding chairs, easily folded tables, and dishes to pass are the steps of team assembly and accomplishment to support a pleasant outdoor office experience.
Too much frequency can spoil the experience and too little can sometimes be too late. I like to offer up the experience whenever asked as that implies interest and need. Create a team for each event and involve members from within and outside the agency to assist with the planning.
We are on our second charcoal grill here at APC– I lost all the flavor of the prior, however I have recycled the original and use it strictly for ribs. The grill is loyal, dependable, and patiently awaits to fulfill purpose and pleasure. I am now hungry for a flavor of smoke and outdoors.
Feel free to share stories, experiences, laughter, and above all great food at the Agency Grill.
