When the weather is warm, many of the residents of Devonshire, a master-planned community located just east of Dallas, turn up the heat. Spring, summer, and fall are prime grilling seasons, and this is a great reason to have a cookout with friends and neighbors.
There are a couple of great options for residents to show off their cooking skills. Some prefer having an outside entertainment area in their very own backyard, which might include a big-screen television, lounge area, fire-pit, and, of course, a multi-purpose grill.
Others love the convenience of using The Club at Devonshire. Regular gatherings are scheduled in the clubhouse, which can also be reserved for private parties by residents. The grilling fun is multiplied by the community’s large swimming pool, a splash pool, a covered pavilion with a fireplace and grilling area, an events lawn, and a playground. This is one of the coolest places to be when the weather is toasty.

Grilled Pork Chops with Honey Garlic Glaze
Timing is everything on this F&W grill masterpiece. A simple glaze, made of sticky-sweet honey, savory soy sauce, and fresh garlic, drench each perfectly grilled pork chop in this recipe. For the most evenly cooked pork, with delicious char and grill marks, flip the pork frequently over high heat for the first several minutes of cooking, and then finish the meat on lower heat.
Here are the details for grilling these mouth-watering pork chops.
Grilled Corn on the Cob with Calamansi Mayo
If you’re looking for a great side dish, this may be the perfect choice for your next cookout. This is a Hawaiian twist on Mexican elote, featuring grilled corn slathered in a creamy, cheesy calamansi mayonnaise, which gets its acidic twang from a sour citrus fruit native to the South Pacific. Japanese chile flakes (ichimi togarashi) add heat; aonori (dried seaweed) flakes add umami oomph and island style.
After eating this side, you will never eat traditional corn on the cob again. Click here, to get the details.
