15 Things You Should Be Grilling (That You Probably Aren't)

1. Watermelon.

Everybody knows that burgers are great on the grill. And hot dogs take on a welcomed char that just isn't possible when cooked in the microwave. But those aren't the only foods that benefit from a little outdoor cooking. We're not talking chicken or steak either -- no, it's time to get creative and extend that smoky goodness to some of our other favorite foods.

Think watermelon, avocado and even doughnuts. All of those foods take on an extra something special after lying down on some hot grates. We have 15 ideas for you below, but this is just the tip of the iceberg. Basically, if you can eat it, you can (and should) grill it -- or at least try.
