I am a big fan of cooking out when friends stop by for dinner, whether it's a weeknight or a Friday night. My favorite trick for making this possible is to have guests build their own dinners. Grilled grain bowls are an easy way to pull this off.

Think of grilled grain bowls as the grown-up version of the hobo packets you might have made at sleep-away camp.
