Temperatures are rising and its time to bring out the grill! TV chef and author Rachael Ray visited "Good Morning America" today with some recipes for a perfect summer cookout.

The food guru -- who is now sharing her expertise on's food page – answered some questions and gave some simple tips for how you can make your next barbecue your best ever!

You can make your own sauce using fewer than 10 ingredients – and you'll mostly likely have them in your kitchen. Vary the spices and flavorings and have fun with it.
