The beauty of grilling is that something as simple as a piece of meat can be effortlessly transformed into a complex dish -- the low, smoky heat of the flames does most of the work for you. However, while it's easy to create flavor by barbecuing, it's a bit harder to transfer that allure to a photograph. Have you tried convincing a slab of meat to model for the camera? Not very photogenic, right?

Until now. Some of the recipes in our latest contest came with beautiful photography, and we want to recognize the ones that caught our eye. Read on, and try to keep your stomach from growling.
