With the summer finally here, it is time to clean off the barbecue and start planning an awesome event you can invite your friends and family to it. You can get in all your favourite foods and condiments, plenty of drinks, and have a party that everyone will enjoy. If you like your food spicy, you can get some Thai seasoning sauce and give your food a kick that everyone will enjoy. Below are some tips to help you plan a fantastic barbecue this summer and ensure everyone who attends has a wonderful time.
Use Two Barbecues
When you have friends and family that are vegan, and others that love their meat, you will want to use two barbecues. You can use one to cook the vegan food, and the other to cook everything else, which will help to keep everyone happy.
Plan Your menu
You will also need to plan what food you will make and whether you will ask anyone to bring something along to the barbecue. Ensure that you have plenty of salad, and there are lots of meat options you can consider, such as:
- Hot Dogs
- Marinated Chicken Breast
- Chicken Wings & Thighs
Once you have planned your menu, you can buy everything you need and start preparing your food for the big event.
Getting Plenty Of Drinks
One thing you will want to do is have everyone bring their drinks themselves, but you will still want to have options available. You can stock up on beer and cider and get in various wines, including white, red, rose, and prosecco. You may not have a lot of room in your fridge to keep the drinks cold, so ensure you have some ice boxes and plenty of ice so you can chill your drinks.
Sort Out Your Seating
You will also need to ensure that everyone has somewhere to sit who attends, so you may need to borrow some garden chairs from friends and family. You will also need a couple of tables to hold the food and condiments, plates, and cutlery. Once this is sorted, you will have one more task to ensure your barbecue is a resounding success.
Sorting Out The Music
You will also need to use your preferred music streaming service, whether you use Spotify or another one, and put together some suitable playlists for your barbecue to get everyone up dancing. When you have somewhere to relax, lots of food and drink, fantastic music, and all your favourite people, you can rest assured you will have an excellent barbecue this summer.
