It’s the classic American summer barbecue scene: Dad at the grill with tongs and a really goofy apron, a tray of burgers, and a beer. But who says men are the only ones who know how to fire up a Weber? Westchester chefs Iulia Mahu, Sajin Renae, and Heather Fratangelo are busting that stereotype wide open with fresh takes on summer barbecue and cookout recipes that cover everything from sides to mains to sweet endings. (Frosty beers still encouraged.)
