Summer is all about steaks, burgers, ribs and all things grilled. But even if you don't have the space or place to grill outside, that doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't grill. Whether you live in an apartment or you're just on a budget, indoor grilling is always an option. You can achieve great results with just a grill pan, but it doesn't stop there -- we've got many more ways to help you get your grill on indoors. Think smoke -- a smoking gun, wood chips, liquid smoke. There are plenty of tricks to get your food tasting like it was quickly char-grilled or cooked for hours on the barbecue.

One of the best ways to simulate the grilling experience indoors is with a countertop electric grill. The appliance has the grates placed above the heating surface so it's a lot like an actual grill. It's a lot better than most grill pans because you don't run into the problem of trapped moisture due to shallow indentations, which can lead to steamed meat.
