Dogs vs. Sprinklers: The Battle

Fourth of July BBQs are the perfect opportunity to fire up the grill, turn up some tunes, and hang with friends & family. Looking to liven up the party? Simply add water. That’s right, we’re talking about the sprinkler.

The complicated relationship that exists between dog and sprinkler can only be defined as frenemy.

Unable to resist a blast of cool water on a hot day but also unwilling to accept this inferior method of watering the lawn, pups in attendance of your friendly get-together will find hours of taunting entertainment in the sprinkler.

In a large bowl, whisk together oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper. Before adding chicken, reserve a small amount of marinade to brush onto kabobs while cooking. Place the chicken, garlic, onions, and peppers in the bowl, and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours (the longer the better).

Preheat the grill for high heat.

Drain marinade from the chicken and vegetables, and discard marinade. Thread chicken and vegetables alternately onto the skewers.

Lightly oil the grill grate. Place skewers on the grill and cook for 12 to 15 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Turn and brush with reserved marinade frequently.

Bone appetit!
