|Soon we will be grilling it up at our own shindig.|
This year we are planning our first annual barbecue party for our closest friends and family. At the end of our busy season, we want to kick back and relax at the farm compound with a band, some good old fashioned pork BBQ, great contests, and maybe even play some football or have a backyard cookoff. A lot of people write in and ask for Grilling Tips for a home party, never knowing how much food to order.
Home Party Grilling Tips
In my experience, when the average cookout only lasts a few hours, people on average, eat six to seven ounces of meat each. The reason being, they will make a decent size (maybe even heaping) sandwich the first time through the party line, which consists of a roll or bread, grab some side items, a drink, and snacks. Now, if they are big eaters, they maybe come back through to the food once. You have to factor in the some will eat more, some will eat less rule. If you have burgers, pit beef, and hot dogs, you don't necessarily have to figure in one of each per person. We also find that when people consume alcohol, they generally eat less. Now this will change if you have an all day into the night party, you had better grill for the masses. They will be eating grub with you all day long.
Now my wife stresses over the tiny details and has found these great five things I wanted to share with you.
