This weekend, you can haul out that backyard grill — if it's not out already — and join in on the great American tradition of grilling meat and vegetables (but mostly meat) to welcome the long days of summer. If, however, you have neither a backyard nor a grill, you can participate in another great American tradition of finding someone else do the work for you. Or most of it, anyway. Our list of the best BBQ and Korean BBQ joints in town should help, as should this flowchart that will lead you to just the right amount of smoke and meat to satisfy your cravings. Weber or not, great barbecue can be found right in your own backyard.
