Kicking-Off Summer with a Fun in the Sun Grilling Giveaway


by Wisconsin cheese


Summer is finally here! That means weekends are about to be packed with fun outdoor activities (if they aren’t already!) like pool parties, baseball games, camping, family get-togethers, picnics…and the list goes on. To help you prepare for this epic season of grilling occasions, our Cheese & Burger Society is hosting a Fun in the Sun Grilling Giveaway.

One lucky winner will be geared up with Cheese & Burger Society gear, grilling tools and a package of Wisconsin cheese varieties that are ready to top plenty of cheeseburgers. To enter, visit the Cheese & Burger Society Facebook page and share your best grilling photo between now and the end of June. The grilling photo that best demonstrates the most fun in the sun while grilling will be chosen as our winner.


And speaking of cheeseburgers, here are three city-themed cheeseburgers to inspire a summer road trip or, perhaps, just a stay-cation in your backyard.

The Chicago

This cheeseburger hails from the Little Italy neighborhood of Chicago, using Italian beef, giardiniera and au jus topped with Wisconsin provolone and placed on a dense Italian roll. Roll up your sleeves and have napkins at the ready for this flavor-dripping burger.


The San Francisco

Wholesome and farmers’-market-fresh, The San Francisco teases the taste buds with sliced heirloom tomatoes, red onions and guacamole. And then it closes the deal with a strip or two of thick-sliced bacon on grilled sourdough bread. Close your eyes and you’ll be transported to the City by the Bay from the comfort of your own lawn chair.


The Seattle

Despite the cloudy skies, you can see a glitter in people’s eyes when the Seattle is served. With Pinot noir-glazed wild foraged mushrooms, wild watercress, arugula, sautéed onions and coffee-spiked mayonnaise on a beef patty with Wisconsin brie, it makes every day feel sunny.
