How to Throw a Great Barbecue

Throwing a great barbeque is a simple way to have a good time while enjoying the summer weather. We would like to offer some advice on how to have the best barbeque in the Hudson Valley!

Think about how many people you’re cooking for and how much food you’re going to make. You can suggest that everyone bring a dish to have a potluck!

Some ideas for fresh snacks are fruit kabobs, sliced watermelon, and an assortment of chips. Organize a table with food before dinner and fill a cooler with your favorite beverages. When you start to cook, add some flavor with the locally owned and operated Horseshoe Brand hot sauce.

Plan for some shaded areas for guests to sit under. A great local company to rent a tent from is A Day In the Shade Tent & Jump. For kids, think about getting a rental waterslide.

Fill up water guns and water balloons for the kids to play with. A number of water-related activities can keep the kids busy and having a great time.

A great game for people of all ages to play is cornhole. Set up the equipment in your backyard and suggest a tournament for the adults.

When the sun sets, start a campfire. A firepit in your backyard will come to good use when you have your neighbors over for smores. Pick up some glowsticks for the kids to play with in the dark.

With any of these suggestions, you’ll have the best barbeque in no time!
