Barbecue lovers, rejoice! Summer is here, and it’s grilling season. It’s time to dust off your grill after months of neglect and enjoy the taste of meat cooked over an open flame. And not a moment too soon.
There’s nothing more American than grilling a fat steak (cooked medium, and for God’s sake, hold the ketchup!) over a fire on a warm summer weekend. While you clean off your grill and marinate your meats, we invite you to take a gander at these nine mouthwatering outdoor barbecue heavens…
This grilled-meat mecca is outfitted with stainless steel appliances set against a stunning stone floor. Like any good Texas barbecue, the barbecue area is outfitted with a smoker and multiple grills—as well as griddles to fit your Texas toast, and a cooler for an ice-cold Lone Star.
And if you’re a true pit master, you can roast your food directly over two fire pits.
