How to Plus Up your Backyard BBQ

Here at hilmor, we are all about innovation.  We have a simple design philosophy – create tools that are a step ahead. The kind that are equipped with features that save our customers time, frustration and maybe even a few headaches.  We took existing ideas and made them our own with the goal to make a tech’s job easier and more efficient.


Now that summer is almost here, our sights are set on weekend barbeques.  We wouldn’t be employees of hilmor if we didn’t try to “plus up” our cookouts.  Keep reading to learn more.


The Appetizers

Finger foods are a must.  Many people enjoy walking around and mingling during the appetizer course.  Make sure you have chips, veggies and dip, and other snacks for your guests to pick at.  To plus it up, surprise your hungry friends and family with some grilled bacon wrapped scallops.  They are sure to be a hit.


The Main Meal

The ultimate summer barbeque staples include burgers, hot dogs, chicken breast, potato salad and corn on the cob.  But, did you know that you can grill vegetables like asparagus, peppers and onions?  Did you know that pizza can also be grilled?  Make the most out of your grill!  Whip up some fresh seafood like salmon and shrimp, too.  The more options you have, the more accommodating you will be to your guest’s specific preferences.


The Drinks

Serve up a signature drink in a pitcher or fountain jug.  Give it a name, too!


The Music

There are some great options out there, but our favorite Pandora music stations to play at our barbeques include Summer Hits of the 2000s and Country BBQ.


The Party Favors

Make your BBQ memorable.  Give your guests a small favor as they leave.  How about a cool koozie or bottle opener?


Now that our stomachs are rumbling, it’s time to enjoy this Sunday afternoon.  What is on your BBQ menu tonight?
