Keep your cookout local with these made in America products for grilling. With record breaking warm temperatures here in Madison we’re all heading outside to cook and enjoy the weather.

 

 

Cedar Planks– Cooking with cedar planks is a technique that infuses a woodsy cedar flavor into your cooking. Just soak the plank in some water then place it on the grill, then place your food of choice on top of the planks. The planks will flavor any type of meat or vegetable, but my favorite use of the cedar plank is cooking grilled fish.

 

 

 

 

Grilling Set- Show your team spirit while you flip burgers and you’ll be the talk of the tailgate with this Packers grilling set. It is also available with other Wisconsin team logos including Wisconsin Badgers and Milwaukee Brewers.

 

 

 

 

 

Bratwurst– Grocery store brats are fine but why settle for ordinary when you can have extraordinary. The best place in the USA to get bratwurst is Bavaria Sausage Kitchen in Madison, Wisconsin. They use old world recipes to create distinctive bratwurst that put those grocery store brands to shame. In fact, the founders of Bavaria Sausage Kitchen claim they introduced the bratwurst to Wisconsin.

 

 

 

 

BBQ Sauce- I have the cranberry orange flavor of Howling Wolf barbecue sauce in my fridge right now, and sometimes I’m tempted to pour it in a glass and drink it because I like it so much! If you would rather eat your barbecue sauce on food instead of drink it, visit the Howling Wolf blog for recipe ideas.

 

 

 

 

Grilling Cookies- After a savory meal of cedar plank salmon or bratwurst or barbecued chicken, you will be craving something sweet, so celebrate the grill with these gorgeous hand decorated sugar cookies. These also make a memorable gift for the grill master in your life.
