Easy Hacks for a Great Outdoor Cookout

With the summer season here and the Fourth of July happening next week, cookouts and barbecue bashes will be aplenty. With the season, however, there comes a greater chance of having to deal with bugs ruining the experience. Thankfully, a couple of simple hacks can make the experience better for everyone.

It’s not uncommon to find a bug wanting to take a sip of your tasty drink only for it to fall into your drink and potentially ruin it. A simple way to keep your drinks bug free is to use cupcake liners which can be placed upside down on the drink. Simply insert a reusable straw and your bug problem is solved.

S’mores are a staple of any outdoor cookout but by the time dessert arrives it’s often too late to use a charcoal grill. If you don’t have a fire pit, you can always use a terracotta pot to make them. All you need to do is line the pot with aluminum foil, add the charcoal, and you’ve got a makeshift grill.

Don’t forget the importance of wearing mosquito repellent with DEET as well as wearing sunblock with an SPF of at least 30 during the summer.
