Summer is here, which means proud patriots all over the country are looking forward to the Fourth of July. Tis’ the season of pool parties, fireworks, and barbecues, and I, for one, couldn’t be any more excited. Going to Fourth of July parties is always a great time, but nothing beats hosting the party yourself; you get to choose the guests, decide on the food, rake in the complements and bask in the summer vibes that you created. However, in order to host a great Fourth of July party, you need to be prepared. Here are 5 essentials for an epic backyard Independence Day party.
The centerpiece of any backyard summer party is a grill. Whether it is simply hotdogs and hamburgers, or extravagant skewers and steaks, you need good food for a good party. I am of the opinion that nothing compares to the flavor of an authentic charcoal grill, and the Asado Cooker is the one to rule them all. Unlike your grandfather’s little black box, this grill features heat resistant ceramic construction, precision temperature control, a chicken throne, a pizza stone for evenly cooked pizzas, and smoking, searing, and grilling options. To top it off, the Asado Cooker has a whopping 254 inches of cooking space to make sure everyone at your party is full and satisfied.
