8 Essentials for the Ultimate Backyard BBQ
It’s officially summertime! Here’s everything you need to pull off the perfect backyard BBQ:
A successful backyard barbecue depends on the grill. The right one will simplify everything, from setting up to cleaning up. The one we think is right? Burnie Grill! Burnie lights instantly and is ready in minutes. After you’re done cooking, Burnie burns itself down to ash, making cleanup fast and mess-free.
Summertime means endless heat. Be prepared for thirsty guests with ice cold beverages on hand. Don’t just stock up on beer, wine, and seltzer. Non-alcoholic beverages are a must to keep all your guests hydrated, so have lots of water, lemonade, juice, or soda on ice.
Keep hungry hands at bay with appetizers. A simple set up of assorted fruit or dip to accompany chips or veggies will satisfy your guests until your main dish and sides are off the grill.
Round out your get-together with activities to entertain your guests. Cornhole is tried and true, and it’ll keep your guests entertained with some friendly competition.
Customization is key to satisfy many hungry heads. Let your guests build their own plates with a range of toppings and sauces to choose from at your burger bar. Alternatively, you can use bigger cuts of meat like brisket or pulled pork to make sandwiches, tacos, or wraps. And all of those can be cooked on the Burnie.
Accompany your protein with fan favorite sides! Consider options that are pre-proportioned and easy to grab, like grilled veggie skewers, corn on the cob, or loaded baked potatoes. Also, you’ll save time cooking and can spend more time with family and friends with sides that can be prepared beforehand.
Summer nights and s’mores and Burnies go hand in hand…in hand. They are easy to make, fun for all your guests, and taste so delicious. Keep them classic or add toppings like, caramel, peanut butter, candy bars, or pretzels to take it to the next level.
Don’t forget to enjoy and have fun with good company and good food!
