8 Everyday Carry Essentials: Backyard BBQ

everyday carry essentials

Today’s collection of everyday carry essentials focuses on a very specific social gathering, the backyard BBQ. You’ll need to bring the meat and the grill but the gear below will certainly help you pull off the perfect barbecue. Those Revtown USA Sharp Denim Jeans are truly a delight (pictured below). They’re some of the softest, most comfortable, and well-fitting jeans I’ve come across.

I wanted to make special mention of the ‘Gold’ South Carolina-style BBQ sauce from Lillie’s Q. They’re a barbecue joint with locations in Chicago’s Bucktown and the panhandle of Florida (in Destin). As you know, the Florida panhandle was absolutely decimated this week by Hurricane Michael. Consider ordering some of this BBQ while the panhandle rebuilds because DAMN is it delicious (it also comes in gift packs with other BBQ flavors).

I also wanted to make mention of two more items, the Meater+ and the Knob Creek x New Belgium Oakspire Bourbon Barrel Ale. The Meater+ (Meater Plus) is the 2nd generation Meater wireless meat thermometer. This time around it has a 165-foot Bluetooth range compared to the previous 10-33ft range of the first gen model. The Meater’s been a favorite of mine for quite some time and the Meater+ is a major upgrade. Also, the Knob Creek x New Belgium Oaskpire Bourbon Ale is the PERFECT beer for sipping on while you grill out. It’s brewed using caramelized wood sugars known as barrel char from used charred Knob Creek barrels which bring out sweet brown sugar and caramel tasting notes in the beer as it matures.
