Chef Jamie Gwen Fires Up Summer With a BBQ Bash

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 5, 2012) - Chef Jamie Gwen shares her favorite tips and tricks to make your summer cookout a blowout!

For summer grilling, there is no need to run all over town to find the freshest ingredients; Jamie's one-stop-shop is Sam's Club. Sam's Club has a 200% freshness guarantee on all fresh items. Nothing says summer like fruit and Sam's Club offers a combination of stone fruits, melons and fresh berries to add to your BBQ.

If you're looking to achieve that authentic smoky flavor, Jamie recommends using Kingsford® Charcoal. Each briquette is made with natural ingredients and real wood that has grooves to make the charcoal light easier while still burning longer -- and a twin pack of 20 pound bags is only $16.68 at Sam's Club!

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, American's consume 7 billion hot dogs! With Ball Park Angus Beef hot dogs you know you're serving franks that are beefy, juicy, and bold and can satisfy even the manliest of appetites! Ball Park's Angus Beef hot dogs come in three varieties: original, bun size and a low fat/full flavor option; something for everyone!

Everyone knows that a hot dog's partner is the cheeseburger. The perfect way to top your burger is with Sargento Natural Sliced Cheeses. Sargento offers 100% natural, never processed cheese in a number of varieties like Pepper Jack and Cheddar-Mozzarella that provide rich, authentic flavor to take any burger to the next level. Top your burger with any of their varieties like Baby Swiss and Sharp Cheddar to create a savory creation your guests will love.

If you're looking for that perfect side dish to complement your cookout, Ore-Ida® has just introduced Ore-Ida "Grillers" -- thick-cut slices of potato that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. They go from freezer to grilled in just 15 minutes. You can grill them alongside your main dish which means you'll spend less time preparing and more time enjoying! Available in the freezer section, they come in both golden and seasoned varieties and are the perfect pairing for your BBQ this summer.
