The warm weather is made for grilling! Because it’s too hot to cook indoors, it’s best to cook every possible meal off the grill. That doesn’t mean you have to eat hamburgers and hot dogs for the next few months. Nope, the grill is good for so much more.
Here are some of my favorite summer grilling cookbooks! Enjoy, and happy grilling!
