Feed Zone Cookbook veggie burgerWe believe that grilling up dinner in the evening with a cold beer in hand shouldn’t be just a rest day luxury. And what endurance athlete wouldn’t prefer to be outside than in the kitchen?

The Feed Zone Cookbook makes enjoying summer easier with many recipes that you can fire up in the great outdoors.

Here’s a sampling of great Feed Zone dishes that will be fun and easy to prep on the grill with your favorite brew in hand.

  • Pork Green Chili (p. 181) | We don’t need no stock pot. Grill it!
