Grilling for the Summer

Well, the dog days of summer are officially here, and for those of us who don’t have the luxury of central A/C, it’s just too hot to go home and turn on the oven to cook dinner.

In an effort to avoid going hungry all summer, I went on a mission to find some great summer recipes that only involve one cooking method: Grilling. And I’m not talking about just hot dogs and hamburgers. I’m talking appetizers, salads, main dishes, sides, and desserts, too!

Now that I have compiled all my recipes, the only thing standing between me and a great summer meal is the fact that I don’t have the slightest idea of how to operate a grill. Anyone have any tips for me?
