Everything on my menu can be made at home and packed to take with you, so you can get to the important things in life, like partying.
Barbecued Pulled Pork on a Charcoal Grill: This dish feeds a crowd with little on-hands work. I cook and pull the pork a day in advance and refrigerate it in a foil-covered, doubled-up aluminum baking pan. On party day I set the pork on the grill grates and heat it over low heat until nice and hot. Toss it with your favorite sauce, and pile on a good hamburger bun (our favorite is Martin's) and lunch is served.
Kentucky-Style Vinegar Slaw: Easy, tangy and sweet. Plus no mayo in the slaw makes it perfect to serve on a hot day.
Dessert: A summer fruit dessert, like Texas-Style Blueberry Cobbler tastes good even at room temp. Even better when topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Cocktail/Beverage: I’ll have three choices at the bar. One: my homebrewed cream ale served ice cold. Two: fresh lime margaritas which counter the smoky, richness of the meal. And three: Dr. Pepper, because it’s the best soft drink, ever.
