Get your grills ready, because Labor Day weekend is coming up fast. The unofficial last weekend of summer is known for being one of the final chances to barbecue outdoors before the weather cools down, so we're looking forward to having a bonafide feast.
But barbecues are typically very meat-centric events, with hamburgers, hot dogs, steaks, and grilled fish as some of the main players.
