It’s time to crank open those BBQs, put on your sunscreen, and get your feet up for Labor Day! The “unofficial end of summer” is just around the corner and it’s the perfect time to get everything ready for the big day. Whether you’re celebrating as a big group or just a low-key get-together of a few of your closest friends or family, we’ve got everything you need to make it a day to remember.
Buc-ee’s has made it easier than ever to get what you need in one place, saving you time, stress, and even money with their fantastic prices.
Below, we’ve put together a list of all the top items we think you’ll need to ensure your day goes without a hitch.
1. Tabletop Grill or Alaskan Grill
Having a grill will be one of the most important parts of your party. Fortunately, Buc’ee’s has two to choose from. First, the portable smoker/grill; this grill has great features such as being 24 pounds of solid, heavy construction, handmade & welded, removable and washable grate, and a side opening for inserting more wood or coals. You can cook your favorite meats easily and quickly making them juicy and tasty.
The next option is the Alaskan grill; this grill is convenient and portable with stainless steel legs with PP ends, wooden handles, a stainless steel lock-on-lid for safe and easy transportation, and a chrome-plated cooking grid. The overall size is 11.8” × 12” × 16.5" which makes it the perfect product for your camping trips and Labor Day parties by the lake.
2. Sauces and Rubs
You can’t grill a fine piece of meat without rubs or sauces and you can be sure to not disappoint your guests with Buc-ee’s wide range to choose from. The rubs and sauces include BBQ sauces, scorpion pepper sauce, brisket rub, cajun rub, Carolina reaper sauce, spicy ketchup, seven-pot primo pepper sauce, steak seasoning, and a dozen more! Your meat will be the most flavorful in the neighborhood and we guarantee your guests will be impressed.
For dips, Buc-ee’s has more salsas than you could ever eat from mild to make-your-eyes-water and everything in between. Spice up your chips with the Carolina Reaper salsa or keep your mouth cool with the delicious avocado tomatillo salsa. We have ten different flavors to choose from but they’re selling out fast so be quick!
4. Pickled Goods
Don’t forget to pick up a jar or two of your favorite pickled goods. Pickled veggies and eggs will zhuzh up dishes and hors d'oeuvres and be a huge hit with everyone at the party.
You know that time between your guests arriving and the food being ready when people start to get a little antsy because they’re hungry? Well, make sure no one gets a case of the hangries this year by laying your tables with a delectable selection of Buc-ee’s snacks for people to munch on while they wait for the main course. Between the beaver nuggets, flavored nuts, jerky, brittle, pretzels, candy, cookies, and chips, there won’t be a hungry tummy in sight.
6. Party Supplies
As well as the food, you’ll need supplies such as cups, plates, napkins, and maybe even a few things to keep the kids entertained. Fortunately, Buc-ee’s has a great selection of party supplies so you can impress all your guests!
7. Fabulous Outfits
What’s a Buc-ee’s shopping trip without a shirt and hat or two? Look stylish and be comfortable with the latest clothing selection. The infamous Buc-ee’s apparel is perfect for the September weather, the soft fabric is gentle on your skin, and the designs are sure to make you stand out (in the best way possible). Protect yourself from the sun with the selection of hats, and keep cool in the fantastic shirts. Due to the huge range of sizes, you can even get matching outfits for your whole family and make it an occasion to remember!
