Memorial Day is known as the unofficial start of grilling season.

So does that mean you will be firing up your barbecue come May 28?

According to the 23rd annual Weber GrillWatch Survey, 71 percent of American grill owners will be cooking outside this Memorial Day. That's up from the 61 percent who said they would be using their backyard grill in last year's survey.

The survey also found that 71 percent of Americans over the age of 21 have some kind of grill or smoker.
