Roland Emmerich, Independence Day20th Century Fox

Fourth of July weekend is synonymous with food (lots of it), fireworks, and... alien invasions? Yep, that's right; the key to having the ultimate Independence Day experience is having an "Independence Day"-inspired barbecue celebration.

Light up the grill, turn on the July 4th doomsday classic, and you've got yourself the perfect all-American picnic. Watch Will Smith kick some alien butt -- and Roland Emmerich blow up every landmark -- while you enjoy Kitchen Daily's Creamy Potato Salad, Spicy and Sticky Baby Back Ribs, and Red, White, and Blue Mini Cheesecakes.

Stream "Independence Day" on VUDU, Amazon, or iTunes.

Check out the recipes below and cook up a BBQ feast that would make Will Smith jealous.
