GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Summer is the perfect time to get together with friends and family and enjoy a backyard barbecue. David Olson of A Bachelor and His Grill and his son Cameron have tips on how to throw a fabulous backyard barbecue party.

Recommendations for a Backyard BBQ

  • Go Fresh – farm to table and garden to grill
  • Always prepare in advance
  • A clean grill is a healthy grill
  • Set up a two-zone grill: low heat for cooking and high heat for searing
  • Have a variety of food: meat, fruit and vegetables, and beverages
  • Decorate!
