The Ultimate BBQ Guide | North Morris Moms
When I think of Summer, one thing that comes to mind is a good old BBQ! What better way to spend time with friends + family then to be outdoors with some good food? We put together some great tips + supplies that can turn your average BBQ to the Ultimate BBQ!


Create a guest list + send out evites

It seems silly but it makes a huge difference if you create a guest list. This way, you know how many people are coming so you have enough food + drinks. Send out an evite, using either email or Paperless Posts. This way, you have an RSVP list + you can even see who can bring desserts, so everyone can see the comments. (And so you don’t have 3 trays of brownies).


Plan for the weather to not cooperate

Almost every BBQ that my husband + I have thrown, it has rained (of course). So you need to plan for that even if the weather says sunny (again, has happened). Check your guest list (beforehand) + make sure you have enough room in the house to hold all your guests. If it’s really that bad, can you cook inside? Is there room to put all the food if you need it inside?


Prep the Grill + Side Dishes

Don’t forget this step!! It will save you time the day of + calm an anxious mind (like myself). Prep the grill, clean it, make sure you have more than enough propane. Make side dishes such as pasta salads, desserts, fruit salad, the night before.


BBQ Supplies

After you have your RSVP list, go get your supplies. Here are some of my favorite go to items that you can reuse for other events!
