5 Essentials for Your July 4th, Picnic or BBQ

Summer is a great time to gather with family and friends, and with [insert name of holiday] around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll need for the grill and the cooler. Here are a few essentials from your friends at Gerrity’s.

1. Meats

Whether you prefer skirt, flank, or T-bone steaks, Gerrity’s butcher shop [hyperlink? Maybe to the butcher blog post below?] has what you’re looking for. And it’s cut just the way you like it. We’ve also got house-made sausages and freshly ground beef. Our butchers grind it on-site multiple times a day for maximum freshness.

2. Kebabs with grilled veggies

Of course it’s good to get some veggies in the mix, and grilling them on a skewer (with or without added meats) is a fun, flavorful way to get the job done. As a bonus recommendation, grilled portobello mushrooms are a delicious vegetarian alternative.

3. Potato and macaroni salads

What would a [insert name of holiday] picnic be without potato or mac salad? It’s a holiday after all, so indulge a little. Make your own, or visit Gerrity’s for Mom’s.

4. Deviled eggs

It’s tough to overlook a savory staple like deviled eggs. If you’re looking to spice them up or try something new, feel free to check out our list of deviled egg recipes.

5. Beer and wine

You’re going to have to wash down all these yummy foods with something, right? We recommend domestic beer for the 4th. Beer not available  at our Meadow Ave and West Pittston locations. Wine only available at our Clarks Summit, Moosic, Hanover Twp., Luzerne, and Wyoming locations.
