Originally published by the Alliance for American Manufacturing.

The United States celebrates its independence on July 4, and chances are that many Americans will be celebrating the holiday with a festive cookout. To help make sure you and your fellow revelers have the most patriotic day possible, the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) has put together a list of Made in the USA products to help make your celebration an all-American success.
Get fired up this July 4th with a grill made in the good ol’ USA!
The LazyMan brand was established more than 70 years ago, and the company has been making grills in the USA ever since. All of LazyMan’s stainless steel grills are handmade in their factory in Belvidere, New Jersey. Relax and cook your gourmet burgers, hot dogs, steaks and more on a Lazyman and shop here.
Portable Kitchen (PK) grills are “built for adventure” and are perfect for your backyard barbeque. The company uses recycled aluminum in its grill casts and assemble grills by hand in the USA. Check out PK’s popular “Grill & Smoker” here.

Nothing’s cooler than being American-made!

The Outdoor Recreational Company of America (ORCA) produces a line of coolers that are proudly Made in the USA using “100 percent American-made components.”  Along with supporting American workers, when you buy an ORCA cooler you also help a worthy cause, as a portion of every purchase goes toward conservation groups, wounded warrior programs, breast cancer research and women’s outdoor groups. Check out the company’s variety of cooler colors and sizes here.
