In addition to butterflied sausages on the grill or grilling whole sausages over indirect heat, you can poach or roast sausages in the oven until they're two-thirds of the way cooked and then finish them on a super-hot grill to get that desired char. This might make pre-planning your backyard barbecue party a little easier.
Another cool BBQ method is making beer-can chicken or "chicken on a throne" — a technique Christopher Walken has shown us before in video. Here, Esquire recommends you place the whole chicken on a half-empty beer can. The beer will steam the chicken from the inside while the grill's heat will crisp up the chicken skin.
