The perfect summer BBQ in Downtown is a combination of two things, good food, and good company. The rest pretty much takes care of itself as people provide entertainment for themselves through the conversations that they have as well as the music and games that they bring to play. Before firing up the grill, it pays to be prepared by knowing the essentials for hosting the perfect summer BBQ:
Clean your grill well. This might be hard to do if you don’t have a grill brush handy. Better Homes and Gardens suggests making your own using a navel orange sized ball of aluminum foil. Grab a pair of tongs to act as your handle and scrub all the residue off your grill so it’s ready for your latest get-together.
Serve a variety of foods. Although there is no doubt that grilled food tastes amazing, the hot summer heat will have you thinking twice about standing over a hot grill for hours at a time. Make sure to serve plenty of cold foods, too, such as potato salad, fresh cut vegetables with dip, and watermelon. Don’t forget the cold beverages to quench everyone’s thirst.
Hosting the perfect summer bbq takes skill. Now that you know how to make the event memorable for your family and friends, it becomes less of a chore to cook for a crowd and more of a joy. In fact, you might enjoy so much that you’re counting the days until your next backyard BBQ!
