A: Bring yourself, a six pack of your favorite beer, your favorite meat to grill (enough for 4-5 servings), and some loose fitting clothes to make room for all this food!
Q: Where are Grillers Anonymous held?
A: Grillers Anonymous events are normally held at a member’s house on a monthly basis. The day of the week depends, but usually Saturdays or Sundays. We are always looking for volunteers to host, it doesn’t take much other than a grill and room in our yard for some guests.

A: Yes. Although, the Grillers Anonymous events are guys only, but we will have periodic bar based events for the X and Y chromosomes to mix.

A: No it does not. There are T-shirts and other merchandise for sale that help fund some of the expenses that the chapter has I.e. this Website, Meetup (where we mostly get new members), the keg for St Patty's Day, etc. We also offer the ability to donate via Paypal, Venmo and Zelle
