Time-Tested BBQ Tips for Father’s Day

It’s mid-June and grilling season is in full swing.

As you gear up to celebrate dad this weekend, consider the tips in this vintage Kingsford® grilling guide from the Clorox Archive. While some of the advice (and all the drawings) look a little dated, the main points remain sound:

  1. Use top-grade hardwood charcoal

  2. Start fires right for proper cooking

  3. Add smoke chips for hickory flavor

  4. Choose a simple main dish to serve

  5. Have a tasty barbecue sauce

Today’s grillers have a bigger arsenal to achieve barbecue perfection, thanks to recent Kingsford innovation.

There’s our Kingsford Ultimate Performance line, including long-burning briquets. We’ve also recently launched our first Kingsford-branded barbecue sauce.

But the heart of the backyard barbecue remains the same: gathering friends and family around some blazing hot coals for delicious food and a good time.

Happy Father Day to all the fathers out there from Clorox.
