Cooking with Mad Dog and Merrill at the NARI Spring Home Improvement Show

What once started as a couple of pitch guys for a national grill company has turned into a cult following that has swept the Midwest. For nearly 35 years, self-proclaimed “Grillologists,” Mad Dog & Merrill, have entertained and educated thousands of grilling enthusiasts. Molly knows a thing or two about grilling, as well!
