Anyone who’s fallen in love with grilling can attest: There’s almost nothing that doesn’t taste amazing cooked over an open flame. That includes grilled pizza, of course, and even grilled lobster tail—and grilled vegetables too, but not just corn on the cob. From grilled romaine to grilled watermelon, and on to grilled dessert, we’re here to help you make the most of making everything over a fire this summer.

Whether you’re looking for something to complement your usual grilled proteins, wanting to switch it up with grilled shellfish, or needing something to satisfy your vegan BBQ cravings, there’s a lot to choose from here. (Of course, we’ve also got tips on grilling meat if you need guidance there, not to mention recommendations on the best grilling gear—since the first step to grilling anything is to have the proper equipment.)

But now, on to grilling everything else besides the usual suspects.
