We're gazing down a stretch of days toward Memorial Day weekend, and we're itching to do nothing except lay in a hammock with a lemonade or a gin and tonic or both. (New Yorkers: Let's look past today's rain, shall we?)
It's also the unofficial beginning to a summer full of lazy grilling—and to celebrate, we've rounded up 40 of our favorite grilling recipes—chicken, seafood, beefy, porky, vegetables, burgers, and lots of fun extras—to start you off. (That means, if you wanted to, you could crank the grill tonight and keep going, one recipe a day, until almost July. Go for it!)
What's the first thing you christen the grill with at the start of the grilling season? Tell us in the comments below.
