Top 10 Easter Recipes for the Grill or Smoker

Grill or Smoke Up a Great Feast for Your Easter Celebration

Easter is traditionally the beginning of spring for many people and, therefore, the first good cookout weekend of the year. This is also a big food weekend filled with ham, lamb, turkey and prime rib, so this is the perfect time to fire up your grill or smoker and make a great meal. Remember that anything you can roast in your oven can be cooked outdoors for more flavor, more fun and more cooking space in the kitchen for everything else you plan to prepare.
