The Ultimate Memorial Day Grilling Guide

Choosing the Right Grill Choosing the right grill setup is essential to getting the perfect char on a juicy fillet or cooking mountains of kabobs for hungry guests. You may already have your go-to grill and just want to kick things up a notch for Memorial Day, or you might be looking to finally splurge on the high- end smoker you’ve been eyeing. Whatever your grilling prowess or needs, you’ll want the lowdown on grills and fuel types before you get cooking. Gas If you’re looking for a high-quality, spacious grill to feed a crowd, a gas grill is the way to go. Ubiquitous to backyard barbecues, these are the most common type of grill and will make your Memorial Day bash a breeze. They start and heat up quickly and are easier to clean than most other grill types, though they require propane tank refills. While they do not impart the smoky flavor of a charcoal grill, they cook delicious food reliably well. Gas grills are available in numerous configurations and sizes, and are often equipped with convenient features like built-in thermometers and warming racks. While a more expensive option, gas grills are a good investment to wow your Memorial Day crowd.

May marks the beginning of the transition into summer, and nothing says “summer is here” quite like a Memorial Day cookout.

Get fired up for your Memorial Day fête, whether you’re hankering to throw some flat iron steaks on the grill or to show off your cooking chops with your world-famous pulled pork sandwiches. Impress your guests with these simple grilling and gathering tips, and you’ll be ringing in the summer with ease.
