Fire Up Your Grill: Plan the Ultimate Memorial Day Backyard Party

Summer solstice isn’t for another month, but the unofficial kickoff to summer is upon us: Memorial Day weekend. And with the reverence it represents comes, in most cases, a long weekend, warmer weather and an excuse to gather with friends and family. Whether you call it a BBQ, grillout, pot luck, or block party, chances are you are gathering at some point over Memorial Day weekend to grill outside.
