10 Dream Places For Grill Masters (PHOTOS)

Nothing says "summer fun" quite like the family barbecue. The grill masters in your group can keep the party going on vacation with these 10 'cue-friendly vacation rentals, featuring top-of-the-line grills, Texas-sized smokers and decked-out outdoor kitchens.

Now all you need is one of those classy "Kiss the Cook" aprons and you're ready to ignite some fun on your summer vacation!

On family vacations and reunions, it's easier, cheaper and a whole lot of fun to gather everyone around a patio table for a cookout. I have done this many times at rentals with extended family, and it's a super memorable and relaxing way to enjoy dinner together.

Quick tips to make it easy to cook on vacation:
  • Use paper plates.
  • Keep the menu simple: Think chips, premade salads, fresh fruit and bakery cookies.
  • Put the kids to work setting the table and taking orders.

Check out these amazing places, and master the grill!
