Best Barbecue Side Dishes

The best side dishes for a barbecue are the kinds you prepare right at the grill, or nestled into the coals.

Most vegetables and fruits, from bell peppers and corn to bananas and cantaloupe, are delicious when seasoned and cooked directly on the grill–or dotted with butter and herbs and wrapped in foil pouches to cook in the hot embers.
