Memorial Day is a symbolic day where people across the nation come together to honor and remember the lives lost serving our country. Over the course of Memorial Day weekend we often pay our respects at the graves of the fallen, and then we celebrate the freedom brought about by their sacrifice with our friends and family.
Heading into 2021 with more and more people being vaccinated and some resemblance of the old normal gaining momentum, our Memorial Day weekend activities are opening up a bit. Things are looking optimistic and while social distancing is still in play, BBQ season is here and Memorial Day marks the season opening cookout for many.
If you haven’t already, it’s time to start planning your Memorial Day weekend festivities with friends and family and there is no better place than the outdoors to do it. Soak in some rays, throw back some cold ones, eat some grub, and play some yard games whether camping out in the hills or hanging out in the backyard. Cabela’s has everything you need for a fun-filled, delicious time!
Cabela’s, who makes its mark as the World’s Foremost Outfitter of outdoor gear, not only offers hunting and fishing gear galore, but also has an amazing selection of quality outdoor apparel, cooking supplies, and home products. With their excellent customer service, collections from reputable brands, and helpful buying guides, it’s a great place to gear up for any outdoor fun.
If you want to add some flavor and flare to your classic grilling of burgers and dogs this summer, consider the Bradley Smoker® Original Electric Smoker. Not only is it ideal for smoking your wild game from last fall, but it’s great for burgers, hot dogs, sausages, beef brisket, pork shoulders, or ribs.
You can cold smoke or hot smoke your meats and even slow roast at low temperature. It’s got user-friendly temperature controls that make for consistent cooking and smoking thoroughly throughout your meat. The exterior is made of durable, powder-coated and poxied finish while the interior is polished stainless steel. It is easy to clean and will last for years.
If you’ll be spending your weekend at the lake or the coast fishing and want to up your fish fry game, check out the highly popular Bass Pro Shops® Stainless Steel Fish Fryer. This cooker sits on a tripod with a wide ring base and three additional stabilzer feet to make this fryer the least likely to get tipped over by Uncle Ricky when he gets a little tipsy himself.
The heavy-duty 10.5-quart aluminum fry pot is both high-capacity and lightweight so you can cook enough to keep up with your company’s consumption rate. The strainer basket has a rubber coated handle for comfort so you don’t need extra hot pads and it clips to the pot to allow hands-off draining before serving. If you’re cutting back on the calories you can even use this for boiling shrimp, crab, or whatever else floats your boat.
Nothings worse than a boring BBQ, so while the meat is smoking low and slow on Memorial Day Weekend bring out some yard games to entertain. The B3 Bean Bag Bucketz Game (All American Edition) is a great one for the whole family.
Or for those with longer attention spans try a laid back game of outdoor Yahtzee with the Wild Sports Giant Yard Dice Outdoor Game.
However you plan to celebrate Memorial Day weekend or the many summer days that will follow, check out what Cabela’s has to offer for those leisurely cookouts and get togethers. And don’t forget to thank the men and women who serve in the armed forces, both past and present, for fighting to maintain the freedom to do so.
