In terms of popular grilling season, summer clearly takes the lead, as most U.S. respondents of a Statista survey said they can’t even imagine the hot season without barbecues. When it comes to their favorite holiday to have a barbecue, it is particularly the Fourth of July that made it to the top.

And when it comes to the different types of barbecuing devices, most American consumers prefer to use gas grills. Charcoal grills are another famous choice among U.S. respondents, and even though pellet grills are considered less common, they still saw high levels of annual sales growth.

Here are the most popular foods to barbecue amongst U.S. consumers, as per this Statista survey.
