With the summer upon us, the days of beach trips, campfires, and barbecues are now here. Attending a summer barbecue is always a nice time, but hosting one can be a bit stressful, whether you are hosting a small group or planning a large gathering. With a tiny bit of planning and a well-thought-out menu, it can be simple to make your next barbecue party a huge hit. Read on to learn what you’ll need to host a fun barbecue party!
A barbecue isn’t complete without the proper tools. Before you begin grilling, ensure that all your tools are cleaned and ready to rock. These include spatulas, tongs, grill forks, grill gloves, propane, gas, charcoal, and oil. Double check the propane or charcoal supply before you start to grill. Save yourself the headache and make sure you’ve got enough propane or charcoal the day before the big party.
The Drink Essentials
A hot summer day will require you to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and the same applies for your guests. Serve a variety of different beverages to cater to each guest’s needs. These include water, lemonade, fruit juice, soda, wine, beer, cocktails, glass cups, ice, and a cooler.
The Eating Essentials
Depending on the size of the crows, set-up, and clean-up can be time-consuming. Make sure all of your eating utensils and necessities are available from the second your guests arrive, especially if snacks are on the table. The essentials, all of which can be found at H.C. Walterhoefer, include bowls and plates, napkins, spoons, forks, and knives, serving bowls, tongs, and table cloths. Consider setting up a garbage or recycling station to avoid extra clean-up duties. Keep a recycling bin close to the drink coolers for bottles, cans, and caps. All of the listed eating essentials can be purchased in bulk here at H.C. Walterhoefer, so come in today if you need any of them for the barbecue.
The Food Preparation Essentials
No barbecue is done without all the toppings and fixings on top of your main dish. Have a wide selection of toppings so the guests can create a meal suited to their own taste buds. Use this list as a guide, and feel free to get creative with it too. You should have: hot dog and hamburger buns, cheese slices, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, peppers, pickles, relish, ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise to top it all off.
