7 Small-Batch Grilling Season Essentials
Written by Daniela Johnson

High Grill Marks

Longer days, warmer weather, and vibrant blooms abound—grilling season is upon us. Stock up on everything you need to make it your best one yet with these small-batch grilling season essentials from our Marketplace.


Slow Burn Peach Grilling Sauce and BlackJack Barbecue

Use this grilling sauce to baste ribs, pork tenderloins, or chicken for a balance of subtle peachy flavors and slow-burning heat.



BlackJack Barbecue Rib Rub

Sprinkle a generous portion of Food for the Southern Soul’s BlackJack Barbecue Rib Rub on pork or beef ribs before tossing them on the grill to create a flavorful caramelized “bark” on your meat.



Gourmet Warehouse Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce

While most grilled foods are keto and Paleo-friendly, you may run into problems with sauces and marinades. This one from Gourmet Warehouse is thick, smooth, and smoky—minus the sugar, so you can stick to your diet without forgoing flavor.


Lillie’s of Charleston Mustard BBQ Sauce

For connoisseurs of spicy food, Lillie’s of Charleston’s “Hab Mussy” (“Have Mercy!”) Mustard BBQ Sauce offers the slow burn you’re looking for along with the traditional, authentic flavors of Carolina mustard barbecue sauce.



Pine Street Market Smoked Chicken Sausages

Handmade with Springer Mountain Farms chicken, Pine Street Market’s Smoked Chicken Sausages arrive ready to grill. Each two-inch link is seasoned with sage, black pepper, and chiles.



Pine Street Market Bacon Jam

Level up your grilling game with bacon jam, a savory-sweet spread handcrafted with bacon, garlic, onions, molasses, and spices by Pine Street Market. One bite, and you won’t want a burger any other way. Top it off with Suga’s Pimento Cheese.
