It's July 4th again -- time to celebrate the day with friend, some great food, even better drinks and some amazing fireworks. You'll undoubtedly be bringing your BlackBerry along for the party so you'll need some great apps to keep you going throughout the day. No matter if you're heading to a BBQ, hosting your own or even just hitting up the golf course, we've got you covered. Keep reading and check out all the best July 4th apps for your BlackBerry.

If you're throwing a backyard BBQ, you'll need some cooking skills to impess your guests. Odds are if you're throwing the party you already kind of know what you're doing, but just in case, there are some great apps to help you along.

BlackBerry Grilling

Our favorite by far is Cooklet, a PlayBook app that gives you access to loads of great recipes and lets you chat and share ideas with other aspiring grillmasters as well. You can choose your recipe, create a shopping list and be cooking up a storm in no time at all. Best of all? Cooklet won't cost you a thing.

Hitting the grill? Grill Recipes is just what you need. This ebook for your BlackBerry PlayBook is packed with a boatload of info about all things grill. Recipes, techniques, tips and much more. It's totally free and can give you a crash course in grilling before you get fired up for the day. Grab it free in BlackBerry App World.

If you need a good burger recipe I highly suggest you try these awesome turkey burgers. Yum.

Beer me!

Nothing says summer more than a great cocktail, and nothing brings out your inner mixmaster more than a great app. Thankfully, there are more than enough to choose from.  I've been bartending long enough to know my stuff, but even if you've never touched a shaker or a muddler, you can still make some great cocktails.

BlackBerry Beer

MixMentor HD for the PlayBook will get you going totally free. It includes over 500 drink recipes, barware terminology and more. It's dead simple to use and will have you spinning bottles all day long. It's even packed with drinking games for those parties that drift off into the late hours.

If you won't have your PlayBook handy and need a drink in a pinch, EasyBartender is available for most devices and features over 14,000 recipes. This will stack your arsenal to the max and you'll easily be able to find a drink for anyone. Grab it free here.

Are you hardcore BlackBerry? Pick up some Samuel Adams BlackBerry Witbeir for your party - it's awesomesauce.

BlackBerry Golf

If you're the kind that doesn't want to party and golf is more your thing, we've got you covered there as well. nRange Golf GPs is our favorite and it's loaded with everything you'll need for a day on the course. It sports over 21,000 courses in 22 countries and uses your device GPS to give you distances, maps and more. Ditch that rangefinder and just keep your BlackBerry by your side. nRange Golf GPS is free in App World.

If you're not the outdoor type and would rather play a quick 18 from the couch, there's always Lets Golf 2 HD. You won't find a more fun golf game for the PlayBook and if you haven't tried it out yet, it's totally worth the $0.99

These are just a few apps to get you going for the 4th. If you want to keep it low key, you can always trick out your device with a patriotic ringtone or wallpaper as well.
