From Turkey to Singapore, Ecuador to Vietnam, many street food dishes are grilled on outside barbecues and grills. The methods of grilling vary as much as the ingredients, marinades, spice rubs, and recipes. Street food lends itself very well to the home or portable barbecue, and it is perfect for summer evenings or lazy weekends. Aromatic plumes of smoke often guided me to stalls selling delicious items that epitomized the countries that I visited. I smelled where I was going long before I saw the meat, fish, cheese, or vegetable ready to be devoured with the aid of nothing more than a pile of crumpled paper napkins. Anticipation of the food to be eaten creates a great sense of atmosphere. Your guests will be salivating.

The beauty of a barbecue is that, even though the preparation, marinating, and lighting of the thing may take some time, the actual cooking of the food is quick, and the results are instantly gratifying.
