cheap (and tasty) bbq ideas...
having a 20 person bbq- and looking for something more than burgers/dogs, but wanting to not drop a bundle.
Some guests won't do beef, some won't do seafood.
You can do some beef, some shrimp, some chicken, and some all veggie.
I recently saw where if you do veggie only kabobs and protein-only kabobs, apparently its easier to get the veggies and particular meat to cook to the correct level of doneness... rather than alternating protein with veggies on the same stick and trying to pre-cook veggies or trying to get your pepper to cook completely while your shrimp is turning to rubber, etc
jfood would recommend boneless chicken breast (bone your own breats to save lots of money) and skirt steaks (if you cannot fond skirts go with flanks). Marinate them in the fridege and onto the grill when needed. They both take about 6-8 minutes on the grill.
Prior to make a nice salad and get some corn on the cob.
Country Style Pork Ribs - Inexpensive, meaty, and easy to cook whether grilled, low & slow, oven, or crockpot.
