20 Grilled Recipes & Cooking Lessons to Help You Master the Grill!

Recipe Roundup

The summer grilling season has officially begun, and we want to make sure you're ready to turn on that flame and gather around the grill. Here are some of the best grilling recipes we know — plus some cooking lessons to show you how to grill the best burger you've ever had, how to grill crisp and perfect pizza, and even how to grill no-knead bread and make dessert on the grill. There's smoky grilled cabbage, blackened beer-brined chicken, grilled guacamole, tomato-zucchini salad and more. Light up that grill!

Applying fire to food was one of the very earliest cooking techniques — and whether or not we're hardwired in our DNA to appreciate the charcoal taste of burnt wood and smoke, the grill remains one of our most beloved tools, the closest thing we still have to a communal hearth, a place to gather with beers in hand and bundles of asparagus and platters of chicken, a place to cook and eat together in the sunshine. We hope that you're ready and confident in your grilling this summer — whether that's at a charcoal-fired grill in the park, or a gas grill in your back yard.
