1. Star-Spangled BBQ Recipes

Classic American Burgers No July 4th BBQ is complete without a juicy, flavorful burger. Use one of most our All-Purpose Seasonings to give your burgers a mouthwatering taste. Here's a quick recipe:


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 tbsp All-Purpose Seasoning
  • 4 burger buns
  • Toppings: lettuce, tomato, cheese, pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard


  1. Mix the ground beef with the seasoning.
  2. Form into patties and grill over medium-high heat for 4-5 minutes per side.
  3. Serve on buns with your favorite toppings.

Smoky BBQ Ribs Ribs are a BBQ staple, and one of our Smoky Rubs will make them the star of your July 4th feast.



  1. Preheat your grill to low heat.
  2. Rub the ribs generously with Smoky BBQ Rub.
  3. Grill the ribs slowly over indirect heat for 2-3 hours.
  4. Baste with BBQ sauce during the last 30 minutes of cooking.
  5. Serve with extra sauce on the side.

Grilled Veggie Skewers For a lighter option, try our Grilled Veggie Skewers with a zesty BBQ twist.


  • 1 zucchini, sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • Cherry tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Veggie Seasoning


  1. Toss the vegetables with olive oil and Veggie Seasoning.
  2. Thread onto skewers.
  3. Grill over medium heat for 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.

2. Pro Tips for Perfect Grilling

Preheat Your Grill Make sure your grill is hot before you start cooking. This ensures even cooking and those beautiful grill marks.

Use a Meat Thermometer For perfectly cooked meat, use a meat thermometer. Burgers should reach an internal temperature of 160°F, and ribs should be cooked to at least 190°F for tenderness.

Rest Your Meat Allow your meat to rest for a few minutes after grilling. This helps the juices redistribute, making your meat more flavorful and tender.
