Let's just say, you'll need a few essentials ...

Looking forward to grill food this summer? Here are the must-haves for grilling out!

The Grill 

The most important piece of grilling out is the grill itself. You can’t have a BBQ without the tools to do it. One of the best portable grills on the market is the Old Smokey Charcoal Grill. It may look like a steel drum that’s been cut in half, but there’s a certain charm about it that your father’s father would be proud of. 

If you prefer a gas grill, then the Petit Gourmet is the best way to take your grill game on the road. It’s lightweight, portable, and comes with a tiny one-pound canister that provides enough fuel to cook just about anything.

The Cooler 

The Coolest Cooler is literally one of the coolest coolers you’ll ever buy. It’s a combo of a blender, phone charger, speaker, and cooler. Embellished with LED lights and a built-in bottle opener, The Coolest Cooler is a tailgating must-have. 

But, if you need something a little more basic, then the Yeti Tank 85 is what you want. It’s a 20-gallon ice bucket that will stay ice-cold and can hold up to 96 beers.

The Food 

Grill food is magical. One of our favorite grill recipes is pizza burgers! You're welcome.

Pizza Burgers: In just 10 minutes, you can have four delicious, pepperoni pizza burgers from The Pioneer Woman. All you need is one to one-and-a-half a pound of ground beef, one-half pound of Italian sausage, a half a teaspoon of Italian seasoning, eight slices of mozzarella or provolone cheese, pepperoni slices, eight tablespoons of jarred marinara sauce, grated parmesan cheese, and four Kaiser rolls (or really good hamburger buns).
