Summer is in full swing and it’s time to fire up the grill. Better yet — plan a backyard gathering with your closest friends and family to celebrate the sunshine season.

To get you started, we’ve rounded up everything you need to have the perfect summer grill out with all locally sourced products.

Meats + fixins’

  • Head to Ted’s Butcherblock to stock up on ground beef + ribs. While you’re there, find a selection of curated wine.
  • Burbage Meats is another option that offers a wide selection of top-tier meat options like Italian sausage and chicken wings.


  • It’s not a proper summer grill out without plenty of dessert options. Order a Holy City favorite like Charleston Chewies from Daddy’s Girls Bakery.
  • Up your dessert game with cakes, cupcakes, cookies, pies, or specialty treats from Sugar Bakeshop.

Sauces and seasonings

  • Try keto spice mixes from Lillie’s of Charleston. This family-owned business also serves up low-sodium hot sauces and mustard BBQ.
  • Turn up the heat with Red Clay Hot Sauce. This Charleston-based brand offers restaurant-quality hot sauces, chili crisps, and hot honey.
