As the end of summer draws near, you want to make sure you send off this beloved season in the best way possible. There’s no better way to celebrate the end of summer than with a Labor Day BBQ. So that you’re ready, make sure you’ve got these Labor Day BBQ must-haves!


The ultimate Labor Day BBQ must-have is your very own Green Mountain® Grill. While we absolutely recommend any of the Green Mountain Grill models, the Daniel Boone-Prime WiFi model is sure to be the perfect grill for your summer send off. This grill boasts generous grilling space to accommodate your food, and double meat probes to monitor your meat to the perfect temperature. Wi-Fi and USB mean you can hook your smartphone to your grill for even more ease of use, so you can relax while you grill! No matter the model you choose, your Labor Day BBQ just won’t be the same without your very own Green Mountain Grill. 

Dry Rubs

Now that you know which grill is the best for your BBQ, you can focus on the next thing: dry rubs. Among your BBQ must-haves for tasty meat are Green Mountain Grills’ very own line of dry rubs. Whatever your meat of choice is, Green Mountain Grill has a rub for it including chicken, beef, poultry, pork, fish, wild game, sizzle blend, and roasted garlic chipotle. 

If it were up to us, we’d recommend using the GMG Beef BBQ Dry Rub with this delectable smoked prime rib recipe or the GMG Poultry BBQ Dry Rub on this delicious beer can chicken recipe. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous this Labor Day, why not try them all?


When you’ve decided on your grill, dry rub, and the perfect recipe, you’ll want to turn your attention to GMG’s wide selection of hardwood pellets for your next Labor Day BBQ must-haves. You can choose from the Premium Texas Blend, Premium Fruitwood Blend, Premium Gold Blend, or the Premium Apple Blend. Any of these options is sure to please your BBQ guests.

Your pellet choice is where you can really up your flavor game with the Green Mountain Grill signature hardwood pellets. The smoky flavor really penetrates your meat. So you’ll want to be thoughtful about your pellet/meat combination. The apple blend offers a classic smoky taste that will pair well with a lot of meat options while the gold blend offers a more subdued smoke flavor for your lighter meat selections. You can’t go wrong with these specially curated wood pellets, so decide which one sounds best for you and yours!
