With summer right around the corner, it is time to start planning the ultimate backyard barbecue with family and friends. Here are some great tips to get you started.
Grill King – Don’t wait until the last minute to give your grill a tune-up. After all, it has been a long cold winter and you want your grill to withstand hours of cooking up some seriously good eats. Clean it, oil it, and test the mechanics for proper cooking temperature so you aren’t scrambling the day of the party.
Theme – Make the party extra enjoyable by choosing a fun and creative theme. If you need inspiration start searching online, then visit your local party store for supplies. Create a menu and a music playlist based on the party theme.
Side Dish – Most party guests love side dishes more than the entree itself. Whatever your party menu may entail, make sure you include all the good side dish options. Cook up that finger-licking meat on the grill, and then go crazy with the sides. It’s a great way to include vegetarian friends, too!
Signature Drink – Tap into your inner bartender and come up with a special concoction just for the event to serve alongside the iced tea, beer, wine and soft drinks. Whether it’s a simple margarita, or a gin fizz, select a drink that is refreshing and give it a name to go along with the theme of the party.
