Summer is the season of sunshine and barbecues, which makes it the perfect time for a neighborhood cookout. However, there are a few things to keep in mind before you invite your friends and neighbors over for a barbecue, like being sure to rent the right equipment. Here are a few tips for hosting a neighborhood cookout.
Drinks are Important
A neighborhood cookout is a social event that takes place outdoors in the sun, which means refreshing drinks are in order. Drinks will keep your guests cool on a hot summer day. Make sure you provide a wide array of drinks including beer, water, and refreshing nonalcoholic drinks for children and non-drinkers. It is also important not to underestimate the amount of ice you will need in order to keep the drinks cold throughout the duration of the cookout.
Consider the Timetable
Keep in mind how long it will take to prepare your food. If you do not want your guests to be waiting around for an hour before they start eating, start the grill before your guests are scheduled to arrive. Just because it is a cookout does not mean you have to grill every part of the meal; feel free to prepare salads and provide snacks to hold guests over until the main course is ready.
Borrow and Rent Materials
If you do not frequently entertain guests, you may not own sufficient seating for the entire party. If this is the case, talk to your local tool and equipment rental store, like A Tool Shed Equipment Rentals. They will be able to provide you with tables and chairs so that all of your guests are comfortable and relaxed.

Humidity is a part of life regardless of where you live, but some areas are more prone to high levels of humidity than others. Fortunately, there is a tool that can help control humidity in your home or business.
When humidity occurs inside the home, the discomfort it causes is amplified. High indoor humidity can also affect your health, attract certain types of bugs and pests, and even affect the integrity of the structure of your home. Many people who experience humidity inside their homes choose to purchase a dehumidifier. This is a machine that removes moisture from the air in order to achieve a comfortable level that does not pose problems. Once the dehumidifier collects a significant amount of water, it can either be dumped out or evacuated through a pump or drain.
If you are looking for a dehumidifier, stop by A Tool Shed Equipment Rentals. We have been serving the San Jose area with equipment and tool rentals since 1945. If you would like to know more about our tool and equipment rentals, feel free to visit our website or call us at (831) 359-4769. If you live in San Jose, stop by one of our six locations today to see all of the tools and equipment rentals we offer.

There are several different techniques for lighting a charcoal grill, but some are much easier than other. Watch this video to learn the perfect technique for lighting a charcoal grill.
The most popular way to light your charcoal grill is by using a charcoal chimney. Pour lump charcoal into the chimney and then loosely wad a few pieces of newspaper and place them under the chimney. Light the newspaper using a match or a handheld blowtorch, and then the chimney will do the rest of the work. In about 20 minutes to a half hour, you will have nice, clean charcoal that you can add to your grill in order to begin cooking.
