Grilling is the world’s oldest and most universal cooking method, practiced in virtually every country and culture on six continents (seven if you consider the cookouts staged by grill-obsessed scientists in Antarctica). Especially during the warmer months, enjoying food fresh off the grill in the company of friends and family can be the epitome of comfort.

But there’s a lot more to grilling than throwing meat on the grill. Here, you’ll learn how to grill pork in all its smoky glory, as well as glean some new techniques to make your hot dog grilling game even better. Insider tips, cooking advice, and gear recommendations pair with each recipe, so you’re ready to cook the best meat you can.

And now, ladies and gentlemen, fire up your grills!
