TIP FOR GREAT GRILLING
The number one recommendation is to build a great relationship with the local meat cutter. Backyard barbecues are all about the meat and Save A Lot is the one stop shop for any summer grilling needs. Some of David’s favorites include their T-bones, ribeye, and bone in and boneless pork chops. Save A Lot has meat cutters in store who can customize any cut. In fact, Save A Lot is the go-to for all grocery and grilling essentials. With their fresh cut meat in store, anyone will be sure to find the perfect cut. For more information, visit savealot.com
MUST HAVE AT ANY BACKYARD GRILLING PARTY
The average person will eat almost 3,000 PB&J sandwiches in their lifetime. Peanut butter is a classic American flavor which is great to bring to outdoor cooking in new and surprising ways. Turn the classic peanut butter and jelly into these perfectly sticky Grilled PB&J Wings that will have everyone licking their fingers! Or this Nutter Butter Banana Pudding, an update to the classic Banana Pudding. Roasted, salted or seasoned, peanuts are always welcome as a crunchy, tasty munch at any cookout!

MAKING SURE GUESTS ARE COMFORTABLE
Nothing will ruin a barbecue faster than mosquitoes and ticks. SC Johnson and OFF! created this cool website called OFFCast that actually forecasts the mosquito activity in your area for up to seven days. It can be counted on because it is backed by over 60 years of research at the SC Johnson Center for Insect Science for Family and Health. OFFcast makes sure everyone knows how to plan for any barbecue to make sure it is not spoiled by uninvited guests. For more information, visit off.com
