Add Sizzle To Backyard Barbecues And Cookouts With Promo Products

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer in the United States, but backyard barbecues have already begun in many parts of the country. In fact, May 16 is National Barbecue Day, and it’s a great time to think about promo products that can get your clients’ brands in on the fun in time for the two other most popular grilling days: July Fourth and Labor Day.

Grilling is a great way to get people together for food and fellowship – and maybe a little friendly competition. After all, every region has its own style and favored ingredients, whether it’s low-and-slow brisket from East Texas or Carolina pulled pork. Burgers and hot dogs are the most popular foods for cooking on the grill, but it’s not only about meat. Grilled veggies are also a favorite, such as corn, potatoes and veggie kebabs.


All that food requires tools to prep, cook and serve – and that’s where promo products can shine. From cutting boards and aprons to tongs and grills, here are 10 practical promo picks perfect for equipping a cookout:
