Hosting an event for a group of your favorite people is a great reason to fire up the grill. The biggest problem is that grilling for a crowd can be difficult. A good trick to utilize for hosting so many people is to grill up simple dishes that are delicious regardless of temperature. Food that is easily accessible for the group whether it is hot, room temperature or even cold, provides your guests with a variety of options and frees them from time constraints plated meals often require.
How many guests will you be hosting?
First and foremost, when planning your menu, you need to know how many mouths you are going to feed. The cost of food increases as you add more mouths, but that shouldn't stop you from throwing a great barbecue and making sure everyone goes home full. Hamburgers, hot dogs, and brats are a great option for those who are looking to host a party, yet remain frugal at the same time!
Grilling for friends and family is manageable as long as you plan accordingly. Cooking for 15 to 30 people right in your own backyard can be done as long as you gather the right materials and give yourself enough time to grill. When grilling for a large group the goal is to offer a menu that is not only easy to grill up, but also one that is tasty and memorable.
When you cook a wide variety of foods, you have a better chance to satisfy all of your guests. For a small gathering, all you should need is a typical gas grill.
For larger parties, say around 100 people, you may decide to do a classic barbecue menu with such foods as pulled pork, sausages, or other fun favorites like burgers and steaks.
