Let’s work on upgrading your backyard BBQ. Sure, you could trot out the usual stuff—potato salad, baked beans, sweet corn—but it takes only a few simple steps to create something a little more memorable and help local businesses in the process. Check out these handy steps to elevate your BBQ game.
Whippoorwill Farms – You can find their regeneratively raised forested meats at the farmers markets around the area or they offer pick up and delivery options. Wrap your Filet Mignon or Pork Loin in Sea Salt and Brown Sugar Belly Bacon or grab some Brats, Hot or Sweet Italian sausage, and don’t forget the Andouille links. They also have organic veggies for kebabs, poultry and rabbit options as well and why not grace your table with deviled eggs made from Ellie’s Eggs (the cutest farmer you’re likely to find anywhere).
Asher + Rye – Give your guests something to ooh and ahh over with a fresh pressed Margarita made from Asher + Rye’s Mexican Citrus Juicer. With this beautiful presentation guests can make themselves a fresh margarita in no time. Nobody is going back to sour mix after this!
Lulu & Moss – From tiny pineapples to beach balls…Lulu & Moss packs a lot of fun into one little macaron. Impress your guests with dessert that not only tastes delicious but looks gorgeous.
Hygge – How about having your outdoor BBQ over an open fire? You can still keep it casual yet classy, give guests these Palo Santo bundles (aka “Holy Wood,” has been used for generations in South America to help clear negative energy) that look like little wood piles to take home at the end of the night. They will remember that mouth-watering wood-fired chicken and the campfire smores with every light.
