With this awesome list you will be grilling many more things than you knew possible and enjoying your summer meals to the max!

Sometimes its fun to try something out of the box, so why not try a couple of these or more the next time you BBQ or the next time you have a gathering and want to surprise people and have them try something new! I have tried some of these things on the BBQ, though not all, and the ones I have tried, are awesome. I have tried grilled pineapple on skewers, which were so good! They were with chicken and tasted so awesome paired together! I have also had a grilled pizza, and it was awesome! They take a little bit longer, but they are so worth it!

I would love to try the grilled watermelon, I love watermelon with mint and some sherry vinegar and feta cheese! It makes for the most refreshing salad ever with the perfect balance of sweet and salty. The other thing I would love to try out is the grilled peaches, with some ice cream added after, this would make for a killer dessert! I have done grilled banana boats though, with banana, chocolate chips, and then topped with ice cream and they are always a fun treat to make, the s'mores would be fun too!

Typically barbecue is either a cooking method or a cooking apparatus. The difference between barbecuing and grilling has to do with the cooking times and the types of heat used. Grilling is most often done quickly over moderate to high direct heat with little smoke, while barbecuing is done more slowly over low indirect heat and the food is flavored by the smoking process. There are different barbecue sauces and ways of doing depending where you are in the world.

One of the most popular campfire desserts can also be made on the grill. To start you want to roast a marshmallow tills it's toasty brown, and then put it between two graham crackers on top of a piece of chocolate, yum! The use of the marshmallow plant to make sweets dates back to ancient Egypt, where the recipe called for extracting sap from the plant and mixing it with nuts and honey. Another pre modern recipe uses the pith of the marshmallow plant, instead of the sap. The stem was peeled back to reveal the soft and spongy pith, which was boiled in sugar syrup and dried to produce a soft, chewy confection. The marshmallow plant's sap was also used by gladiators in ancient Rome. The sap was rubbed on the body in preparation for the fight.
