COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — When the weather starts to heat up, so do the grills, but sometimes the perfect backyard meal is easier said than done. That’s why this summer, NBC 4 Today anchors Matt Barnes and Monica Day are getting a crash course on “Grillin and Chillin.”  

This time, they tackled an all-American favorite at Rusty Bucket with Corporate Chef Josh Yosick, the Bacon Burger. They also hopped behind the bar with Drink Deputy Jeff Irwin to make a “Sun Comes Up in Mexico” cocktail.  

Let’s just say things got messy behind the bar. Check out the videos below to learn how to “Grill and Chill” like a pro.  

Special thanks to Rusty Bucket for helping our novice chefs!
