If you’re hosting a barbecue for a particular occasion like a birthday or anniversary, remember to get your invites out well in advance, as summer is a hectic season for families. Don’t forget to put together a checklist of fundamentals to make sure you don’t run out of things like gas or charcoal, have plenty of ice, cutlery and plates, have room for storing raw and cooked food easily, and know exactly how many tummies you need to fill. Putting a plan in place will make your BBQ shop a breeze and lessen those lengthy trips to the shop that can leave you feeling exhausted, not to mention stressed.
