HPBA: Fire Up The Grill On Independence Day, But Do It Safely

Filed under: Events — @ July 3, 2007

July 4th means grilling and spending time with family and friends

We have a uniquely American experience happen on an annual basis in the United States as we celebrate our freedom. I don’t know how it got started or why people enjoy doing it so much on July 4th, but it most certainly is a deep-rooted tradition.

I’m referring to firing up that BBQ of yours and GRILLING OUT as you celebrate our nation’s independence with tasty foods cooked up on the barbie.

Not surprisingly, this is the #1 most popular day for cooking on the grill with a full 71 percent of grill owners choosing to cook this way on July 4th, according to statistics from the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association (HPBA).

The pleasure of preparing a meal with no pots and pans to clean-up, coupled with the enjoyment of the outdoors, are among the top reasons consumers grill –especially on Independence Day.

Whether you are going to a barbecue or hosting one at your house, the HPBA recommends brushing up on your barbecue etiquette and grilling tips to ensure a happy holiday for yourself, friends and family. Click here to see all the dos and don’ts for hosts and guests alike!
