Burgers are very important to cookout celebrations, and we mustn't forget the vegetarians in our family. This recipe's instructions are for cooking in a pan, however, you can grill the "patties" instead for a rich smoky flavour.

Kebabs are perfect for both a charcoal or flat grill. These are spiced with an exotic seasoning called baharat, and it will truly transform ordinary ground beef skewers into a flavoursome meal.

Sausage links, in this case bratwurst, cooked on a grill couldn't be more satisfying. This sandwich is topped with sautéd sauerkraut, which has been seasoned with horseradish and mustard, and I can guarantee this sandwich will be a huge hit.

No need to turn on the oven for the summer version of this roasted chicken. Follow the recipe instructions regarding the spices and the rubbing/coating the entire chicken in them. But instead of placing the chicken in the oven to roast, put it on the grill. It will cook faster on the grill and also have a delicious smokiness to it.

The first part of this recipe, preparing the chiles, is best done on an open flame -- perfect for the grill. The rest is finished on the stove, but the whole process is quite easy. Once you taste the prepared chile relish you'll surely want to top everything with it.

We mustn't forget a grilled dessert! Juicy slices of fresh pineapple are delectable when placed on the grill. To give the sweet flavours another boost, sprinkle the grilled pineapple slices with chile flakes.
