someone to grill at my party?

I would like to have someone come to our house to grill for a small party. I would supply beef tenderloin, apple/chicken sausages and perhaps something else, but I'd love someone else to DO the grilling. Any ideas??

  1. Why not pre-cook everything and grill it off to save sometime. Most catering companies are going to charge at least $25 per hr with a 4 hr min.

    1. That might be tough. You want to get somebody you know will do a good job, but not well enough to actually invite to the party, because they'll be working and you shouldn't invite friends to a party and then put them to work unless they really want to. Ask friends if they know anybody who's a good griller.

        Consider this though, not everybody reacts the same to social situations. I personally like to have a clearly defined functional role at gatherings, so if a friend invited me to a cookout and asked me to grill, I'd be more than happy to.

      2. I would! but I'm out of town right now.

        1. Been searching for the same type of person. Haven't been successful. Let me me know how hour search goes.
