Ladies and gentlemen, start your grillsMay 21, 2014 by Darcie
The official Memorial Day holiday in the U.S. also marks the unofficial start of summer, and by extension, grilling season. Food websites are ablaze (groan) with grilling and barbecue recipes. Serious Eats gives the lowdown on how to make great kebabs and Saveur features a Memorial Day backyard cookout menu. Food52 shows you how to master your grill, and the L.A. Times explains the seven essential tools every grill cook needs. If you want to really impress your neighbors (or set your backyard on fire), you can try the Japanese grilling method that uses special binchotan charcoal.
