Grilling is a national pastime from tailgates to campsites, backyards to beaches. Nothing can compare to the sound of the sizzle and the smell of smoke from a grill that guarantees amazing company and even better food. Taking grilling beyond the norm, top chefs from around the nation will go beyond the normal burgers and hot dogs fare to create mouthwatering treats.
