Any knucklehead can toss some frozen patties on a rickety gas grill and call it a cookout.
If you’re in FIREDISC Nation, or even close to it, that just won’t do. The perfect cookout doesn’t require exotic dishes and pyrotechnics. It does need to include unforgettable food and planning that feels seamless because it IS seamless.
Just follow this guidebook and take all the credit.
What’s the big deal about a cookout?
If you have to ask … just remember that our ancestors learned to cook over an open flame, and the human race was never the same. It evolved into a year-round way of life, moving past the pit to the gas and charcoal grill, and perfected in the plow-disc cooker. Let’s eat.
How to toss the perfect cookout.
If you’re going to do it, do it right.
Pick a place
The park is a good spot, but so too is your backyard. Depends on how many folks you invite. Your location should be comfortable, legal, and have some shade.
Plan sensational sides
Here’s where you delegate. Know who will go the extra mile and make their grandma’s ridiculous mac and cheese. Remember who brought the cupcakes everyone loved last time. Pick the dude with the most varied taste in beer. And pick a parent who will think of all the stuff kids would eat at a cookout.
Set the menu
The music, the drinks, the weather won’t leave the impression the food will. With a FIREDISC® in play, your crowd is guaranteed to gather ‘round as you cook. The key is to have food coming off early, late, and everything in between. Luckily you have the right cooker for the job.

Build from the ground up
Have a sturdy, centerpiece table to have plates, sides, and food on for self-serve. Use a separate cart for drinks. Invite attendees to bring their own chairs, but have a few extra handy in case. Include citronella candles to manage mosquitos and flies if necessary – and a box fan near the food to discourage bugs from landing there. Have an ample trash can and fun yard games to play — or at least a couple of Frisbees and Nerf footballs.
