Nothing smells like summer quite as much as the open grill. When Americans aren’t visiting one of the many BBQ festivals hosted around the country, they’re celebrating the summer from the comfort of their own grills. Delicious, yes. Lucrative? Absolutely. America’s favorite summer pastime yields plenty of financial good news in the summer months.

Whether at home surrounded by friends, or at a festival surrounded by thousands, American grilling means good news for the economy in the summer.
