Apparently that’s the word from Blue Rhino, the propane gas company, who has chosen the Magic City as one of the top 100 Ideal Cities to Grill for 2007, its first ever such list. Birmingham comes in at number 87, with Sacramento, CA coming in at #1. The Winston-Salem, N.C. based company defined ideal grilling days as “days May-August that are sunny, under 90 degrees and rain-free.” According to the press release a final total of ideal summer grilling days were calculated by using the average sunshine rate, the estimated total number of rain days and the estimated total number of days above 90 degrees using data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Sounds a little over the top, don’t you think? But it just gives us another reason to go out and grill this summer.
