A classic ground-beef burger is a terrific way to kick off the summer, but outdoor chefs might also want to experiment with other types of meat: lamb, turkey, salmon, pork-or even bean-and-grain veggie burgers. The current Real Food magazine, which you can pick up free from Lunds and Byerly's has a lot of great alterna-burger recipes.
