So I'm planning a BBQ party birthday for Mr GG, who was born on the 4th July. The obvious theme is Independence Day, and you're the experts, right?
So what to cook? I need vegetarian and fish ideas as well as meat. So far I'm thinking of making potato salad and coleslaw from Bon Appetit Y'All, and probably some kind of salad. I suppose caesar is quintessentially American, but there must be some other classics out there. Blue cheese dressing, maybe?
For mains, I'd rather not do individual stuff like burgers as it's too much work for a crowd. I could do some spatchcocked chickens with some kind of rub, but maybe that's a bit dull. Is it really hard for a novice to do classic American BBQ pork or similar?
I'd also like to serve some kind of punch or cocktail.
We have a Weber kettle barbecue, btw.
