Setting Up Your Best Party Ever

Whether you're planning a small backyard cookout for the family or a big barbecue party, there are a few essentials you need. From the food to tools for the grill and cold drinks to table settings, a checklist of everything you need will ensure you don't forget a thing.


Marinate the Meat

Good food means great party! Make sure to serve high-quality and flavourful food by preparing ahead of time. Before setting up for the party, spend some time in the kitchen to marinate the meat for grilling. You can do this even just for a few hours before the party. Effectively marinating even for a short time is now possible with aMeat Injector. This food injector syringe allows you to reduce the time for preparing meat. While traditional methods require soaking overnight, you can get juicy & intensely flavoured beef, pork, chicken, or turkey in just 1-2 hours.


Set Up the Grill

Since it’s a BBQ Party, make sure to clean off the grill grate, empty out any ash catchers, and season the grate with some oil to help prevent future food from sticking. Get your trustysmoker box and fill it with herbs and wood chips you want to try. Don’t forget to prepare gas/charcoal, aluminium foil, oil, and towel to lessen the hassle of grilling.


Prepare the Tools

The grill is the heart of any great barbecue. While grills come in all shapes and sizes and every backyard chef has their preference between gas or charcoal, the tools you need are all the same. 


This professionalBBQ Utensil Set includes high-quality barbecue accessories, gloves and a polyester apron for easy wear and storage. This BBQ tool kit includes the following stainless steel BBQ tools: spatula, tongs, forks, and two spice jars.


Soak the Wood Planks

Plank grilling, also known as “planking,” is a method in which food is placed on a wooden board that has been set over indirect heat on a grill.

To ensure that your dish gets a deep, wood-smoked flavour, useCedar Planks. This type of cedar plank generates a moderate amount of smoke & heats up gradually for an even cook. Brush it lightly with oil to ensure that the food won't stick.


Keep a Handy Thermometer

While grilling, it’s important to monitor the temperature of the meat you’re cooking. With the help of a trustyDigital Thermometer, you’ll no longer end up with dry and over-cooked meats. Its pen-like structure, & large easy-to-read LCD display makes monitoring less of a chore. Just turn it on, set the celsius or Fahrenheit, gently stick the meat thermometer probe into the food or drink at hand & read the temperature - within 5 Seconds! 

Chill the Drinks

Don’t forget the drinks! It’s important to serve both nonalcoholic and alcoholic beverages. But the most important drink, especially if it's a hot day, is water. Be sure to have plenty in stock so everyone can stay hydrated. Keep all the beverages cold with ready-to-serve ice. Just putIce Bucketson the tables to make sure everyone can get some anytime they want. You can also directly place the bottles inside the Ice Bucket if you want!


Clean Up

With all these prepared, everything else will be easy to pull off. Make sure to spend some time making your checklists for other ingredients, table setting essentials, safety, and cleaning materials. Cleaning up will surely be challenging but it’s always a win when you’re a hundred percent ready. To minimise trash, you can also use aTin Can Crusher for used soda bottles. Simply insert a soda can/plastic bottle and pull the lever down to crush. It’s that easy!
