1. What is your favorite food at a BBQ?

Well, if somebody has a neat new sauce, I like it. I like pulled pork, ribs, chicken, salmon, hamburgers, brats, the usual.

2. What is your favorite drink at a BBQ?

Whatever goes with the main dish.

3. Do you have a specialty dish you bring or make for a BBQ?

My husband does a mean teriyaki flank steak, so I usually make the sides to go with that. Fried rice, cabbage salad, and a tropical fruit salad featuring grilled pineapple. I do not care for potlucks though if I have to go to one I will usually make a dessert. I like to bake and people seem to like my desserts.

4. What was your worst experience at a BBQ? (just so I will try not to do that or have that at mine-lol!!)

I do not recall a bad time at a barbecue.

1. What is your favorite food at a BBQ?
Chopped BBQ beef sandwiches and corn on the cob

2. What is your favorite drink at a BBQ?
Lemonade or a good quality root beer.

3. Do you have a specialty dish you bring or make for a BBQ?
No specialty dishes, but it's not a BBQ if there's no brisket, IMO.

4. What was your worst experience at a BBQ?
I've never had a bad BBQ experience. :-) I guess the closest thing is any time that the meat has been really fatty. Yuck.

1. What is your favorite food at a BBQ? Hmm, probably my mom's macaroni salad. I'm not a huge fan of meat.

2. What is your favorite drink at a BBQ? Maybe iced tea?

3. Do you have a specialty dish you bring or make for a BBQ? No. Whenever I am cooking for people or am supposed to take a dish somewhere, I usually have a hard time deciding what to make. I usually end up trying something new. I may have to start doing the specialty dish thing though-- it would make figuring out what to make a heck of a lot easier.

4. What was your worst experience at a BBQ? (just so I will try not to do that or have that at mine-lol!!) Nothing I can think of.

I'll try with some of my own answers and then add what I have planned to make so far :)

1. What is your favorite food at a BBQ? I LOVE salads.

2. What is your favorite drink at a BBQ? Mike's Hard Lemonade, Sangria, Punch or if no alcohol, Pepsi.

3. Do you have a specialty dish you bring or make for a BBQ? Last BBQ I brought homemade chocolate chip cookies. I have brought all types of things but try and do homemade lately as it is just so much better :)

4. What was your worst experience at a BBQ? (just so I will try not to do that or have that at mine-lol!!) None I that I can think of.

My menu, so far:

Appetizers:
Chips, Pretzels-not sure if I am going to do dips or not. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE appetizers but they can become costly.

Main Menu:
Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Chicken Breasts (marinated), Steak (marinated)
Macaroni Salad (homemade), Pasta Salad (homemade), maybe Potato Salad (homemade), Baked Beans (not sure if I am going to do homemade yet, Corn on the Cob

Dessert:
Not sure of everything yet, going to either do marshmallows or smores for the kids by the fire pit. Maybe some fruit, cakes, brownies, cookies.

Drinks:
Soda, Ice Tea, Water, Beer, Wine, Mike's Hard Lemonade, MAYBE Jello Shots

Your lemonade think reminded me that I really like fresh squeezed lemonade with mint at a summer barbecue. And homemade ice cream. We have an old fashioned hand cranked machine and whenever we have "awkward age" kids -- too old to play with the little kids, too young to enjoy time with adults -- usually around 14-16 -- I put them to work organizing the ice cream cranking. They seem to enjoy the responsibility and the diversion.

1. What is your favorite food at a BBQ? -- oh, lots. But ultimately probably pig ... as in fresh, on the bone, whole, pit-roasted pig.

How about some veggies or fruit on that menu? All your side dishes are heavy and calorie-laden.
