No. Four – Sour Cream Burger

You can add some bonus flavor to your hamburgers with the addition of spices, rubs, chopped onions, and more. But – you can also use sour cream! All you have to do is add a few spoonfuls of sour cream to your ground beef before forming your patties. The addition makes for an extra juicy burger! Some people add in some Italian seasoning as well for what could be considered a “traditional” sour cream burger.

No. Three – Add Wood Smoke to your Covered Grill


Charcoal is fantastic for grilling flavor but so smoke from wood chips. If you don’t have a smoker or a pellet grill then simply use the BBQ Dragon Smoke Box! It’s perfect for using with hickory chips – or the wood of your choice. And, you can also use it with pellets! It’s sturdy, works quickly, and can be used over and over again.

No. Two – Grill Something Different!

Fire up the grill and enjoy! That’s probably the best tip we can offer. It does not matter what’s on the menu – enjoy the moment and take the time to relax with family and friends.
