The Freedom to Grill, Smoke, Sear and Bake

The backyard barbecue is hard to beat in terms of classic 4th of July traditions. While fireworks might take the top spot for some, gathering together with friends and family for some outdoor cooking is our favorite way to celebrate Independence Day. Hot dogs and burgers are always welcome, but with your Memphis Wood Fire Grill, you should feel free to kick it up a notch this 4th of July.

Perfect for Entertaining

One of the best things about a Memphis Grill is that it allows you more freedom to interact with your guests while you cook. With a traditional grill or smoker, you are taking a chance every time you turn your back on what’s cooking. Thanks to our Intelligent Temperature Control System and convenient grilling and smoking app, you have unprecedented control over your creations with just the push of a button. You can monitor and adjust the temperature from your phone.

The Signature Dishes of Independence Day

John Hancock may own the most famous signature tied to the 4th of July, but there’s no reason you can’t add your own flavor to the holiday. When it comes to selecting the menu for your get-together, here are a few ideas that will make your meal sparkle and pop.

This dessert might be even more American than traditional apple pie. After all, blueberries are native North American fruits. This pie looks and tastes like it was invented just for the 4th of July. It’s perfect for any barbecue, but why not use it to add a few stars to your Independence Day celebration?

The Perfect Union of Food and Fun

There’s really nothing like a 4th of July barbecue. It’s a summer tradition unlike any other. With your Memphis Wood Fire Grill, you can make sure your Independence Day gathering is much more than an everyday cookout.
