10 Must-Have Items for Your Backyard BBQ


1. Sunscreen

For maximum protection, choose a water-resistant sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.

2. Water Toys

Keep the kids happily occupied with an array of outdoor toys like water soakers, which keep them cool while they’re having fun.

3. Plastic Cups

Any good barbecue takes time. While you wait, make sure you have plenty of cups for your guests to enjoy an ice cold FUZE® and socialize.

4. Seating

Set out a few options for lounging — some family members might prefer to lie down on a lounger, while others enjoy sitting upright in lawn chairs.

5. Utensils

Make sure you’re stocked with forks, knives and spoons. Plastic ware makes clean-up pretty simple.

6. Propane

The grill can’t deliver all that goodness without heat. Make sure you have enough propane for the whole cookout.

7. Sunglasses

The glare of bright sunshine can make it difficult to see without squinting. Remember a pair of sunglasses for everyone, including small children.

8. Drinks

Bold food calls for a bold drink. Complement your meal with the flavor of FUZE®.

9. Music

Liven up your BBQ with some fun tunes to keep the party hopping. Make a special playlist for the day with all your favorite songs.

10. Tables

It’s always more enjoyable eating the food outdoors in the sun, too. Depending on your crowd, it’s a good idea to set up a few tables ahead of time to serve the food right when it’s ready.
