Ace Hardware Lights Up its Thanksgrilling® Trend for the 2021 Return to Holiday Gatherings
Ace Helps Customers Think Outside the Oven for Holiday Turkey, Featuring Grills, a 5-Course Candle, Chef Grilling Instruction Videos, and Local Events Nationwide
Ace Hardware is lighting up its annual Thanksgrilling® trend as the company’s recent survey¹ this Fall season reveals over three-fourths of Americans are either hosting or attending a Thanksgiving gathering this year. As less people (17 percent) plan to quarantine this holiday versus last year (40 percent), Ace is helping customers to think outside the oven and embrace the joy and convenience of grilling turkey outdoors.
“I encourage holiday hosts to create their own tradition and discover how a whole turkey on the grill is the best kept secret to impress guests with the most flavorful, juicy and epic turkey experience,” said Ace’s grilling expert, Chef Jason Morse. “Alongside the turkey, hosts can also grill those delicious sides and even dessert!”
Ace Hardware is a top destination for the best brands in grills, including Traeger, Big Green Egg and Weber. Along with grills and accessories, Ace customers can also access an exclusive chef’s line of flavorful turkey brines, brine bags and an Ace bucket for the bird’s brine bath. In addition, Ace offers Ace Rewards members free assembly and delivery on all grills $399 and above from your local participating Ace.
Ace Introduces a Limited Edition 5-Course Thanksgrilling Candle
Ace recognizes the only thing missing when a Thanksgiving feast is prepared outdoors are the aromas inside. To bring the aromas indoors for ‘Thanksgrillers’, Ace introduces a limited edition 5-Course Thanksgrilling Candle. The hand poured candle aroma begins with Smoked Spatchcock Turkey, followed by Cranberry Sauce, Sweet Potato Casserole, Sage and Sausage Stuffing, and ends with Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake. The candle retails for $14.99 and can be purchased exclusively at AceHardware.com/Thanksgrilling,

“Grilling season never ends! Our recent survey validates nearly 70 percent of Americans grill outside year-round. Ace created Thanksgrilling – inspiring everyone to think outside the oven for Thanksgiving,” said Kim Lefko, CMO at Ace Hardware. “Your local Ace is the preferred destination for grilling; whether you’re a fan of Traeger, Weber or Big Green Egg, we have it. We offer free assembly and delivery on your new grill – making it easy to get outside and grilling for the holidays this year.”
