As summer approaches, you’re probably already making plans for what’s in store. Perhaps a baseball game is in the lineup or a road trip into the great outdoors. But for those of us who want to bring attention to a neglected yard or patio space with some warm-weather parties, only one word comes to mind: barbecue. And in that case, imagine all you can do with the Solo Stove Charcoal Grill Ultimate Bundle, which is currently on sale for $129 off.

Pick up this grill set for $480 — a massive discount from its original price of $609, if purchased separately — and your BBQ plans will be all set. That’s because this stainless steel appliance is meant to be a party in itself, given that guests can gather to flip their own burgers, line up their vegetable kabobs or get their seafood nicely charred. The Solo Stove can be perched on its 13-inch portable stand at the center of your grouping of Adirondack chairs, and with help from an included duo of charcoal bags, a starter bag, grill tools and a cover, dinner will be served al fresco. All it takes is 10 to 15 minutes of pre-heating the coals before you and your loved ones can get started.

Don't want to pay all in one go? Opt for five Easy Pay installments of just $96 instead. Plus, if you're a first-time QVC shopper, you can grab an extra $10 off with code FRIEND.

The Solo Stove Charcoal Grill is designed with the company’s signature 360-degree airflow technology, which means that it’s built with convection heating that evenly distributes warmth from the top, bottom, and sides of the two-walled drum. It also uses less charcoal than traditional counterparts, and stays hot longer. So, after you’ve placed three to four starters around the charcoal briquettes and waited for everything to heat up, place a burger on the grate and put a cover on top. You don’t have to worry about finding the right temperature to cook it properly after that — the environment of the grill does it for you in about a half hour. Check out this video to see it in action.

Use the included tools of a spatula, meat fork and tong to assist you and others in the makings of a feast, which are also built from durable stainless steel. And after everyone has been served, let the drum cool down, and then easily remove the ash pan for cleaning. If you’d like to relocate your party elsewhere, bring the stove along in a protected bag that’s also a part of the deal. With the stand, the grill sits about 30 inches from the ground and weighs close to 40 pounds, but you’ve got this. Whatever it takes to make the most of summer, right?

The Solo Stove Charcoal Grill Ultimate Bundle is exactly what family and friends look forward to when they think of spending time together in familiar backyards, which is why this deal should appeal to your upcoming schedule. After all, summer is at its best with good food and conversation, and this offering gets you one step closer to that goal. And if you need more cooking ideas, don’t sweat it. You can also fire up carne asada for tacos, cook sausages for breakfast with eggs, gingerly flip scallops to top mashed potatoes and even grill bread for panzanella salad.

The options are plentiful, but summer only lasts for so long. At least with a Solo Stove Charcoal Grill, you’ll be sure to cook up some lasting memories.
