Having friends and family over every weekend for a grilled feast in your backyard or garden is one of best ways to while away a sunny Sunday. We’ll be sad to say goodbye to our favorite cooking season, but while the sun is still shining, and it’s still fairly warm outside, we’re determined to give these warmer months a real farewell party with one last cookout featuring all our favorite late-summer dishes.
