National Barbecue Month is a month-long event that serves to encourage people to start barbecuing early in the season when daylight saving time lengthens the day. Barbecued food can be convenient, quick and tasty. And just about all foods can be cooked on the grill with the right techniques and equipment. While nearly anytime someone craves barbecued food is an ideal time to take out the grill, key holidays lend themselves to this style of cooking. These include Father's Day, Independence Day, Canada Day, and Labor Day. Backyard parties in the summer are also prime times to entertain with grilled food.

Seven in 10 U.S. adults own a grill or smoker, and in Canada, ownership is eight in 10. More than a third of people plan on buying a new grill in recent years. Grilling never goes out of style, which makes it a great basis for marketing promotions. Target retailers who specialize in barbecue products, outdoor kitchens, food and beverages, entertainment, party supplies, patio and outdoor landscaping, and much more.
