Nothing says summer like a good old-fashioned barbecue. But these days, hosting a memorable backyard grilling party for friends and family can get expensive quick. Here are some easy ways to put on a successful barbecue this summer without breaking the bank.
If you’re serving something as traditional as burgers and hot dogs, play dress-up by laying out a spread of bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and other basic condiments. If you cook chicken, serve it with different types of marinades. The variety of selections allow your guests to create their own meal, and you won’t spend a fortune on gourmet ingredients.
