Grilling is such an equal-opportunity cooking method. No matter what your favorite foods are, just about everything tastes better when it's cooked on a grill. I've been grilling for years, and I really came to love cooking on a grill when I catered houseboat trips for over ten years at Utah's Lake Powell. Nothing was better on the houseboat than something cooked on the grill.
In the U.S., the summer holidays of Memorial Day, Labor Day, and the Fourth of July often are times when people will be cooking outside on the grill. If you're cooking for small kids, you could please them with burgers and hot dogs. But if you're looking for grilling ideas to cook something a little special for this year's Fourth of July celebration, here some of my favorites. There are even more grilling ideas in the Grilling section of the recipe archives.
