1. Martin’s Potato Sandwich Rolls, $5.99 for 16

Don’t settle for store-brand buns this Fourth of July. Martin’s Potato rolls are soft, buttery, and the perfect contrast to grilled burgers and dogs. (There’s a reason Shake Shack uses these buns!)

2. New York Strip Steak, $13.99 per pound

A smaller crowd at this year’s Fourth festivities might just pave the way for steak to make it as a main. Salt the steaks early, then place them over fiery coals for the perfect grill-marked crust surrounding rosy medium-rare meat.

3. SweetWater Variety Pack, $29.99 for 26 cans

Did you know that Costco carries local beer in bulk? There’s no better way to celebrate the Fourth than by supporting businesses in your neighborhood. My Costco in Georgia has beer from SweetWater Brewing Company in stock, but your warehouse may carry different smaller-scale brews. Check them out!

4. Mac and Cheese, $2.99 per pound

Forget macaroni salad — I vote for mac and cheese as a cookout side. Slide this pan into in the oven for ease, or transfer it to your own dish before heating. Nobody will guess this mac wasn’t homemade!

5. Beyond Meat Beyond Burger, $11.99 for 8

An easy way to make sure everyone is well-fed is to always have Beyond Meat burgers on hand. This way, you’ll have an option to offer your socially distant neighbors who prefer a plant-based patty.

6. Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal, $20.89 for 34 pounds

No griller wants to step up to get started, only to realize that there are just a few measly crumbs in the bottom of the charcoal bag. Head to Costco for some hardwood lump charcoal and you’ll be set to fire up the grill for the rest of the summer.

7. Kirkland Signature Beef Dinner Franks, $13.99 for 14

Who among us hasn’t dreamed of serving Costco’s famous food court hot dogs at home? Well, now you can (at the low price of a dollar a dog)!

8. Cuisinart 5-Piece Stainless Steel BBQ Tool Set, $29.99

Replace your rusty grilling tools with this five-piece stainless steel set. The kit includes a variety of versatile spatulas for all the food your grill or flat-top can handle. Made with sturdy construction and comfortable handles, these tools will last you many summers to come.

9. Heinz Variety Picnic Pack, $7.99 for 4

The incomparable Heinz picnic packs are back! Now is the time to pick up all the classic condiments you’ll need for cookouts all summer long (and beyond). Everyone needs relish in a squeeze bottle! It’s simply a rule of summer.
