Great barbecue recipes (and barbecue sauce recipes). Favorite meats, chicken, seafood, and vegetables, hot off the grill. Side dishes, salads, beverages and desserts, too, to round out the barbecue.

Actually, the way we most often cook food in our backyards and parks is grilling; barbecuing refers to slow-roasting or smoking meats and fish. But it can also apply to cooking meat "with highly seasoned sauce", so we may have them on a technicality.

And don't forget: Anything that can be grilled can be broiled in the oven, so bbq recipes are useful year-round.
