100 Holiday BBQ Essentials

From Star-Spangled Spatulas to Ultimate BBQ Machines

— July 2, 2013 — Special
There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday than to have friends and family over for a Fourth of July barbecue in the backyard. If you’re planning on enjoying grilled meats and veggies out on the back porch, consider some of these festive BBQ essentials.

The ‘Star Spangled Spatula’ is the perfect patriotic touch to any barbecue. This quirky design by J. Riley-Wasserman is proudly American and of course, all-American made. The flipper of the spatula is shaped like the star-spangled American flag and comes in red, white, blue and black. This will be sure to let you flip your foods feeling festive and with pride. 

The ‘Grill N Chill Tailgater’ is a top-notch grill with a full bar, 210-Watt stereo system and even a built-in drain for its ice chest. Something like this could amp up any backyard and be the life of the party.
