If you’re not already prepping for your upcoming Fourth of July backyard BBQ, you’re late to the game. July 4th festivities are no joke, so you’re going to need to be prepared.

Assign who’s bringing the pies and get some corn ready to throw on the grill. Because it just doesn’t get more American than that, now does it?

Corn on the cob is a great summertime vegetable, especially since it’s so easy to cook while you’re outside enjoying your company. Nobody likes to be cooped up in the kitchen come party time.
