Social media has enabled ranchers to connect with consumers. Through online platforms, people can exchange recipe ideas, view photos of farms and ranches, and make connections from pasture to plate. Here are 10 great barbecue bloggers, and we’re compiling a list of our favorites on Twitter and Facebook, as well. Join in and help us complete our list of beef's best advocates.
Even though we are in what is typically the hottest part of summer, I know winter isn’t too far away. That’s why my family grills outside just about every day these days; it won’t be long before the cold and snow force us indoors. From ribs, to steaks, to kabobs, there are plenty of options for great-tasting beef meals prepared on a hot grill. I’m always looking for inspiration to spice up these classic beef staples, and Twitter is one way for grilling enthusiasts to find great-tasting recipe ideas.
Recently, cision.com compiled a list of 10 top grilling and barbecue bloggers on Twitter. According to the article, “With the dog days of summer settling in, it’s the perfect time to perfect your grilling and barbecue skills. Hit the local farmer’s market or butcher shop and gather your friends, but don’t forget to find the perfect recipe!

I thought it would be fun to compile our own list of favorite beef bloggers, amateur chefs, grilling enthusiasts, ranchers, and beef industry professionals.
