Westchester Magazine Gets Fired Up for Summer Grilling

These eight recipes guarantee you’ll be the backyard- barbecue king or queen of your neighborhood

It’s the height of barbecue season, so enlist your favorite grill master, get a batch of fresh iced tea chilling in the fridge, and set up the badminton net. Whether you refer to it as grilling (generally done hot and fast over direct heat with the lid up) or barbecuing (cooking meats at low, indirect heat with a closed lid for a period of time ranging from hours to all day), it’s about getting outside, lighting up a grill or smoker and enjoying delicious food with good company. These recipes from some of Westchester’s finest chefs reflect that carefree spirit.
