It’s getting hot in here—so take off that grill cover and get ready to fire it up. But before you prepare your first summer BBQ feast and invite all your fellow meat lovers over, stock your patio or outdoor kitchen with these summer grilling essentials.
- Make it official.
Turn your first grill of the season into an event to remember with a formal, but casual invite.
- Set the table.
- Cleanup? What cleanup?
- Don’t forget the napkins.
- Get frosty.
Because every grill master needs a proper frosty mug to call his or her own.
- Grill in Style.
7. Cut the cheese.
The smell of meat cooking on the grill is enough to turn even the strictest vegetarian into a crazed hangry person. Serve up some cheese and crackers while they mix and mingle.
- Serve your meat in style.
Presentation is everything, and you want your meat to steal the show.
- Give guests a hand (towel).
If you really want to kick things up a notch, replace your regular bathroom hand or kitchen towels with these babies.
- Get sauced.
And now, for the secret sauce. Package up that famous hot sauce or BBQ sauce to really set the party on fire.
