Growing up, we become accustomed to the method grilling. Every family occasion, we enjoy the taste of grilled foods. Grilling is like camp fires where people would gather, tell their tall tales, while having a meal. Some families take pride in their grilling recipes. They would invite neighbors to come over for lunch or dinner, just to get their opinion towards their recipes. In North America, native American Indians were among the first people to grill their foods.

Before grilling, they do rituals to thank their gods for providing the food. The rituals are also done so that food would taste good with blessings of the gods; this is also done during their harvest season. Native American Indians usually grill deer and wild pig meat.
