Did you forget to pack your Weber grill when you moved to New York? Well, the truism's true: You can't have it all. Nonetheless, you shouldn't have to give up summer cookouts. Thankfully, Saveur is hosting one and has invited unbelievable chefs from all over the city — and the country! — to participate.

When it comes to New York grub, we're a little, er, gluttinous. We don't just want to eat these chefs' food — we want to hear their secrets, too: things like what type of beef makes the best burgers in the city? Or how can we use food to set the mood? And of course, since it's summer, where do the pros go to get golden brown (outdoor patios, we're looking for you)?

Ahead, you'll find the scoop on all things savory from five New York chefs who have made it big. Like any tasty morsels, these secrets are better shared — so go ahead and spread the wealth.

The 6th Annual SAVEUR Summer Cookout takes place Tuesday, June 23. Tickets are available here.
