I absolutely love barbecues! I love the taste and flavour added to food by being cooked over hot coals. The smoky taste and the social experience is great!
Quite often when you throw a barbecue party, you will find that your guests will probably bring one of their favourite things along to contribute.
I suppose the obligatory foods would be sausages and burgers (try making your own with a twist!). You can have any type of chicken - maybe wings in a sticky marinade or some marinaded chicken breasts.
A lot of people love a steak cooked on the barbecue as well.
Seafood is also really nice. You can wrap some salmon fillets and cook them over the coals. Its really delicious.
If you are looking for vegetarian options (which you should cook first) then try some vegetable kebabs and vegetarian sausages. The fish will also probably go down a treat.
Set a table with some mixed salads, cous cous, dressings, bread rolls, sauces and a dew deserts. They'll love it!
I like to grill bacon-wrapped asparagus with my steaks. On the side, I add my cucumber salad, which is unsweetened yogurt with thinly-sliced cucumbers and sweet onions.
Try corn on the cob that is actually still in the husk or shishkabobs with Tri-tip meat. Use different coloured bell peppers, pineapple and onions. You can add different things as per your taste. But while the kebobs are cooking use this sauce to keep them wet- Kikomans sauce with lemon (freshly squeezed). Use a little wine or beer in it and some tangerine juice; add a touch of garlic powder but be careful with the salt because the Kikomans is already salty.
Don't forget the hotdogs for the kids. Try hotdogs with cheese in it.
Corn tortillas are good with a slice of Muenster cheese melted on it. Wet the tortilla before you put it on the grill.
When we plan a BBQ party we try to make it a variety of things, burgers, hotdogs, potato salad, macaroni salad, corn on the cob, fruit, mixed drinks with or without alcohol. Chips or raw veggies to snack on while waiting for the grill to be finished, or finger sandwiches, it really depends on what the guests or the hosts prefer, there is a large range of stuff you can make for a BBQ you can even do crab and lobster.
You should get a bunch of chips and fruit.
You can prepare drinks like coca cola ,pepsi cans or mini bottles,lemon juice and chips like lays chips for a barbecue party.
instead how bout steak , lion steak, hamburgers,cheese burger and mini sandwiches with toothpicks to put in the sandwiches,there a staight answer.
The food that you should use at a barbecue party is most likey ribs, sausages, hamburgers,hotdogs, and you can't forget the potatoe salad.
