With hot weather and blue skies, BBQ’s are coming season. Here’s a list of things you need to host the summer’s best BBQ!
To even begin talking about a BBQ event, you must first secure the most obvious tool: the barbecue. As far as grills go, Webber is recognized as being on the top of the list. Though you can always go for the smaller charcoal Webber, this 2 burner propane gas grill gives you the best control over what you’re cooking up for your guests. No more burnt vegetables or dry burgers!
No BBQ is complete without some extra flavors to spice it up! This selection of grilling spices is perfect for all palettes and tastes: whether you like habanero or citrus, you’re sure to find a way to season your food just the way you like it.
BBQ Grilling Cooking Gloves
If you decided to be more adventurous and go with a charcoal grill or if the flames start rising in your propane grill, it might be a good idea to keep these cooking gloves on hand. While some people like a smoky flavor to their food, it’s best to keep your hands out of the equation. Practice safe grilling!
Franklin Barbecue: A Meat-Smoking Manifesto
If there is a BBQ bible, this is surely it. Everything you need to know about grilling meat perfectly and impressing your guests can be found in this book. You may even choose to hide the book from prying eyes and claim sole responsibility for your cooking mastery!
This is just the cooler you need for your BBQ cookout. With your normal cooler dimensions, this one has the benefit of being rollable and easily transportable, making those beers that much more accessible to all your guests. You can even bring it with you if your BBQ event is on the move!
Beer and soda is great for any BBQ, but if you want to try something a little different you can pull out this bar kit and make some fancy cocktails for your guests. A signature cocktail list can be just what you need to bring your party to the next level: if strawberries are in season, why not make a strawberry-themed cocktail menu?
Zero Gravity Lawn Chairs
Food in one hand, beer in the other, your guests still need a place to sit. Though those typical foldable chairs seem inevitable when having a large group of people over (who has 50 chairs?), a sprinkling of these wonderfully comfortable and reclinable lawn chairs would not go unnoticed.
Bose SoudLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker
What’s a BBQ without music? Small and compact, this speaker is perfect for smaller gatherings (because let’s face it, if you have 50+ people, you need a full speaker system). As is expected with Bose speakers, the sound quality is excellent and the bluetooth range is very good. The only problem? With how easy it is to use, all your guests will be trying to connect their phones to it and play their music!
Garden String Lights
As the night sets on your BBQ, the party would usually be dwindling down to a close, people getting ready to hit the road and head back home. But with these string lights, the garden will be have a more atmospheric lighting and the BBQ will seem like it’s only just beginning
UE Roll Wireless, Waterproof & Shockproof Bluetooth Speaker
Keep the party going with this powerful and lightweight pint-sized wireless Bluetooth speaker. It works with Apple and Android devices so you can blast your music out loud everywhere with 360 degree sound and 9 hour battery life.
Sun Dried Tomato Ketchup
Now you can pour the savory, rich, gourmet taste of sun-dried tomatoes on all of your favorite foods. Traina has combined century-old family traditions with classic ketchup seasonings to bring you the ketchup for tomato lovers.
The perfect ending to a killer bbq is with a crispy sweet treat from Brownie Brittle in an array of flavors from salted pretzel to toasted coconut.
