Labor Day always seems to sneak up, but we've compiled a list of tips/tricks/hacks/whatever you want to call them, to help YOU have the best and easiest Labor Day celebration.
1. Use Non-Stick Grilling Mats
I'm still trying to figure out why everyone everywhere doesn't use these. They're thin, heat safe up to 600 degrees F, dishwasher safe, super affordable, and they come with a Limited Lifetime Warranty in case anything goes wrong.
Just lay it across your grill grates, and you've got a griddle! Use it to grill unusual items like eggs and pancakes (Labor Day breakfast, anyone?) or just use it to keep the juices in your burgers and avoid flare ups. Or, if you really don't like those reasons, it makes grill clean up SIGNIFICANTLY easier!

2. Let The Grocery Store do the Heavy Lifting
Okay, stay with me here. Set the pride aside for just a tiny second and realize how easy life could be.
Anyway... We all know the labor day MUST HAVE is burgers! But dealing with all that meat, seasoning, and cheese can really put a dent in your supposed-to-be-relaxing day off work. I totally get that buying frozen burgers with the cheese already in them seems a bit sketchy, but you WILL NOT regret using these. Best frozen burger BY FAR. No thawing, no prep -- just unwrap and grill. Pro tip: slap another slice of cheese on top & they'll never know!
Buy them at your local Sam's Club. Also available at Costco and Walmart, labelled under the house brand.
3. Avoid the Stress of an Earlier Sunset
Just like Grillight's original LED Spatula and Tongs (also available for purchase), this LED spatula features a removable, high tech, sunlight-replicating flashlight built into the handle. However, this unique USA Edition features a cutout of the American Flag on the spatula head.
Burgers are a staple at Labor Day cookouts, and there's no better way to show your spirit than with an America-themed spatula. Hint: this also makes a phenomenal gift for veterans, military families, or just your USA-loving neighbor.
