Fire is a mighty ingredient all on its own, adding an alluring smokiness to meat, seafood, cheese and vegetables.

For a good time grilling, heed these tips:
Prep your ingredients, and get the grill super hot. Choose something slender and sturdy (like asparagus or scallions) or lean and marbled (like skirt steak or shrimp)
