Snack Well

Try these fun, tasty treats that require next to zero prep time. For kids, grill dessert burritos: tortillas with mini marshmallows and chocolate chips.

Better Butter

The night before you leave, upgrade your butter: Mix it with chopped herbs and other flavors (we like orange zest and honey; garlic and rosemary; and basil and sundried tomato), then let chill. Pack it in your cooler and spread on bread, add to grilled meats or use to finish sauces. Instant flavor.

Wrapper's Delight

Instead of grilling a bunch of items separately, place ingredients on aluminum foil and fold them all up into a (tightly sealed!) pouch. For dinner, try veggies and peeled, deveined shrimp. Dessert? Wrap up peeled, cored apples with brown sugar and butter; cook till the fruit is softened and juicy.

Go Fish

Thick, oily mackerel, salmon and swordfish are perfect for high-heat grilling. Make your meal elegant by adding balsamic-fig sauce: In a pot, combine a small bottle of balsamic vinegar and some chopped fresh figs, cook until thickened, then pour over the grilled fish.
