Grilling Enthusiast and Actor Donald Faison To Help Grillers Turn Up The Flavor and Fun This Summer

Recently, the National Pork Board (NPB) discovered that millions of Americans might be missing out on what could be a seriously tasty summer. After ranking all 50 states based on their flavor footprint - the volume of social media food conversations people had about flavor, seasonings and sauces in 2014 - NPB found that many states are in dire need of some flavor-packed inspiration. Together with actor Donald Faison, NPB is "crashing" grills this summer to inspire America to overcome its "flavor shyness" with mouthwatering pork recipes.

Star of the hit show "Scrubs" for nine seasons, Faison was never afraid to take comedic risks. In his personal life, he also happens to be a not-so-clueless grilling fanatic and with NPB has been using his famously funny comedic delivery to "crash" cookouts this summer with pork.

We talked about:

What's happening in his TV and movie career
His favorite pork recipes and tips he uses to cook for friends and family
Ways your can boost the flavor for summer grilling
How he's planning to celebrate Father's Day 

Listeners are encouraged to take a "grillfie" - a selfie of themselves with pork on the grill, or just their pork on the grill - and share it socially tagged with #grillpork.
