46 Showstopping Summer Barbecues

From Portable Park BBQs to Briefcase Grills

— July 23, 2014 — Art & Design
There's nothing better than taking advantage of summer barbecues when the weather's hot, and if you're going to throw a party, these barbecues get the grilling done in style.

The designs range from the compact and ultra practical to the artful and expansive, suited to any homeowner. If you happen to be rather short on space, there are a ton of designs that are portable and are no larger than an average bag, so that you can set up a BBQ anywhere. On the opposite end of the spectrum, if you've got grassy space and plenty of room for entertaining in your backyard, there are barbecue designs that are anything but compact, showing off their beauty as well as their ability to cook a good cut of beef.
