Getting Your Backyard Ready for a Great Summer Cookout

Backyard BBQs are an American tradition. They’re the time when we step outside and enjoy the sun with the people who matter most. But how do you make sure that this year’s parties will keep your guests coming back?

Here are our top 5 tips for knocking your backyard shindig out of the park!

Clear Up Your Backyard

Your lawn is the first thing your guests will notice when they arrive and can greatly affect the mood of your party before the fun has even started. Before you send out the party invites, be sure to water your lawn and seed any yellow spots left by animals or winter.

Add Plenty of Seating

Backyard BBQs are the perfect way to unwind after a hard week of work, so help your guests relax by providing comfy seating they can sink into! Whether you have a deck, a patio, or a large green lawn, set up some tables and chairs so your guests can mingle and eat at all through the night.

Create a Menu of Ice Cold Drinks

Summers in Oklahoma are hot and humid, and there’s nothing better on a hot summer day than a nice cold drink. Different people have different tastes, however, so whether your friends prefer beer, wine, soda, or just water, make sure they have the perfect drink to quench their thirst.

Get the Hardest Working Grill for All Your Meats

No matter how much fun your games are or how tasty your margarita mix is, the true key for a shindig’s success is a delicious meal and the grill that can make it. If it’s time to retire your rusted-out grill, invest in a cutting edge smoker that cooks your meat to perfection and seals in the flavor you love. You won’t just get your guests thanking you—your stomach will too!
