Fall has finally arrived, but it’s still (and always) grilling season. While cooler temperatures can’t cool Texans’ love of cooking outdoors, fall does bring new items to put on the grill.

Few foods are as emblematic of fall as pumpkins, and grilled pumpkin brings a colorful slice of fall to the table. Pumpkin is one of the switch hitters of produce: grilled with olive oil and herbs, it’s a side dish for grilled meat or fish. Sprinkled with cinnamon or “pumpkin spice” blend, it’s dessert, a lighter and quicker version of pumpkin pie.
