Not everyone has the day off today unfortunately, but if you do and you're reading this, you should probably turn around and get yourself to the grill!

No matter what your mood (for burgers? ribs? steak tacos?), we've got these five different Labor Day menus to pick from. Before you fire up the grill though, make sure to wise up on these 10 essential grilling tips from the Food Lab.

Make room on your plate for classic American fare, as well as dips, salads, other nibbles. And to drink? There's nothing wrong with cracking open a cold can of beer, but here's a list of punches, pitchers, and other refreshing drinks if that's more your speed. And for dessert? Grilled desserts as well as labor-free sweets, and more.

You can find us doing all of the above today. Happy Labor Day, SE'rs! See you back here tomorrow.
