Once that final bell rings, it’s official: school’s out and summer is here. Time to celebrate.
Sure, you could just break out the old, trusty grill, throw on some steaks or veggie burgers, and cheers with your family and friends over some ice cold beverages. But you did that last year, and to really kick this summer off right, you’re going to need a few new things. Check out our 5 favorite products that’ll take your summer feast from average to unforgettable.
No memorable summer bash is complete without incredible food, and with this stainless-steel 4-burner propane grill from Monument Grills you’re guaranteed to cook up a feast fit for your whole gang. Featuring 2 different side burners, a pilotless ignition, over 513 square inches of total cooking space, and an incredible 72,000 BTUs, this grill can cook up whatever masterpiece you crave.
The best part of this grill, however, is its Clearview Lid, which allows you to keep an eye on your food without lowering the cooking temperature inside by constantly lifting the lid. Grilling has never looked so good.
Maybe you’re more of a grilling purist. Just a grill, a bit of salt and peppered meat, and a hot flame. We get that. We respect that. That’s why we love Jealous Devil. Their 100% natural hardwood lump charcoal is chemical-free, produces little ash, and can reach up to 1,100 degrees Fahrenheit. It can burn for 4 hours in the open or up to 20 hours in low-oxygen environments, meaning you use less charcoal when cooking. Although you could use it for regular charcoal grilling, we love it for those low and slow all-day grilling and barbequing dishes like ribs, briskets, or roasts. Either way, you’re guaranteed that pure, unmistakable charcoal grill flavor.
Whether you need to prepare a marinade or salad dressing or just want something cold and refreshing to enjoy beneath the heat of summer sun, your options are endless with this smart blender. A powerful 1,200-watt motor base lets you chop, blend, puree, and even crush ice all in the same machine. Just add your chopped ingredients and select 1 of the 8 preprogrammed settings. The blender will do the rest. Enjoy fruit smoothies, infused water, margaritas, snow cones, and even ice cream at the push of button for an ice-cold treat/refreshment that goes beyond your typical cooler variety.

Place it on over the grates, slide your pizza inside, and enjoy cheesy, savory perfection in as little as 3 minutes. Whether they like every type of meat, a vegetarian medley, or pineapple and anchovies, this grill pizza box will impress your guests beyond the standard burgers and brats.
Unsure of what you want to cook up for your summer feast? No problem. With this 36-piece stainless-steel set, you’ll have all the tools you need to handle any food dish.
