A bring your own barbeque party is a blast. Anyone from a college kid on a budget to a family affair, barbeques are much easier to host than a regular dinner. Your friends can pitch in by bringing potato salads, chips, dip, drinks and dessert or even antacids for afterwards when dishes are practically licked clean everyone is stuffed beyond repair.
Stop! First and foremost, on the top of your list of things to do before you hit that send button of your invite to all your friends is to check your grill! Give it a trial run with someone who knows their way around a barbeque to make sure everything is in order. Hit that send button afterwards. Ask your friends to bring whatever they want raging from snacks, chili, any new sauces they’ve heard good things about, sides, or a homemade dessert. When buying the meat, make sure that everything is of the best quality. From sausages, burger meat, ribs to the steak, make sure everything is of the best quality and supplier. For an example, fresh pork Japan is what is handled well and carefully during each step of production right up to your purchase of it. When buying red meats, you must make sure that there is transparency and legitimacy in the safety of the products.
Your shoulders are tense and your necks been killing you but it’s the barbeque that will be getting a massage this time around. A spice rub will give the barbeque that extra feel of delicious with a blend of sweet, salt and some heat! Much like wine to a meal you have to match the spices and the blends to the meat you’re serving. A special tip to give it the extra flavor is to toast the spices yourself before rubbing it in. Rub it down the day before your party, that way the cuts have more time to sit in the flavors. Have the meat fully prepped before your guests arrive, that way it won’t be a mad dash and you have time to mix and mingle in between your turn attending to the grill.
Roll on out the drinks! After all the highest-grade European trusted pork ribs would be complimented with a frozen Moscow Mule and a spicy beef burger with a fresh whiskey sour. Pair up with the best drink mixer in your friend group and set up a drink table. Have ice, lime and some cherries prepared. Set up the fresh juices, frizzy drinks and alcohol your guests bring along and voila your own DIY bar!
Setting up a barbeque is no trouble at all as long as you’ve got a working grill, prepped meat, a few drinks to get people going while staying cool and company you enjoy! So go on, dust off that grill and send off the invites!
