The war with the British ended in 1776, and this is where it all began. It must have been incredible to be present on the first anniversary of independence from the British crown and free to make your own future, and it’s not much different today in that July 4th is an opportunity to demonstrate that feeling of freedom.
For those reading this article who are not native to the United States of America, the significance of the day of the day may be difficult to understand, but I guess it’s a combination of a number of days. Ireland is one of the most patriotic nations when it comes to celebrating their national day, with St. Patrick’s Day cards being exchanged and everyone having a good time, but Independence takes precedence.
When there’s a party in the summer, it’s a great opportunity for outdoor cooking, and an Independence Day BBQ is unavoidable. Ribs and Pulled Pork are classic American barbecue smoker staples, both finger licking good and ideal for imprinting your own personality on the dish with some homemade BBQ sauce. It’s the ideal finger food for a laid-back setting.
BBQ accessories make excellent barbecue gift ideas because they can be used on the day and will be very popular. It can be difficult to find a gift for the man of the house (and my stereotypical man is the chef when it comes to the barbecue), but barbecue accessories are relatively inexpensive and come in a wide variety.
A set of BBQ branding irons is an excellent choice for him to experiment with when cooking steaks.
Some branding irons are simply a triangular iron with a letter on each side (R = rare, M = medium, and W = well done), but that doesn’t guarantee that he’ll cook them correctly, so it might be better to get one that’s personalized – perhaps personalized with his initials.
Why not go for novelty barbecue aprons if novelty is the order of the day? There’s a diverse range of designs available, ranging from stars and stripes to humorously to “race.”
A Barbecue Thermometer is a useful Independence Day BBQ gift.
If you value safety and convenience, an electric charcoal lighter is a great option. Simply build up your charcoal, insert the lighter, and leave it for 10 minutes, and you’ll have the perfect fire. Just give the charcoal another 30 minutes to settle before you begin cooking.
There’s a simple, inexpensive, and useful an Independence Day Barbecue gift can be. Have a fantastic party!
