14 elegant and easy-to-cook barbecue recipes this summer


July is National Grill Month, which makes sense: it’s the best time of year to cook outside. When the weather outside is hot and humid the last thing we want to do is turn on the oven or stand over the stove to make dinner, so bringing things outside is the natural solution.

Whether you have a charcoal or gas barbecue, these easy grilling recipes will make your summer even more delicious. From marinated porn and chicken kebabs to thick, marinated tofu ‘steaks’, just about everything tastes better after sizzling on a hot grill. You can even make desserts: the intense heat caramelizes the fruit, so it tastes more like candy than something torn from a tree.

Served with a fresh salad or corn on the cob, these surprisingly elegant and easy grilling recipes will become your seasonal favorites. So, fire up the grill, whip up your favorite tongs, and get ready to welcome summer in the tastiest way possible.
