What's Memorial Day without a good old fashioned barbecue? But make this year an all-in-one deal - you will ONLY need your grill to prepare your entire menu!

So I took to our grilling recipes and sorted out some of my favorites for your Memorial Day and barbecuing pleasure. Oh, and this year, we're doing it ALL on the grill.

Presentation Pointers

1. Decorate your outdoor area or room with American flags to commemorate the patriotism of our nation's veterans!

2. Be careful not to make all of your food ahead of time. Part of the fun of planning a barbecue is grilling at the party! Plus this way your food stays warm.

3. Be sure and have serving platters ready and waiting next to the grill for an easy transfer from grill to party!
