I'm a Tennessean and longtime London resident - and a Texan and I are throwing a Deep South & Dirrrrty party here in May. I picked up lots of tips and hints for the playlist from a thread a couple years ago on this forum called "white trash bbq".
I think we're ok on the music - the list was fairly comprehensive (though I won't go into what I think were the obvious omissions, e.g. Steve Earle and Copperhead Road)- but we need help with the food.
I can get my dad to send *some* supplies over from the States, but what I need are some really good suggestions for things we can make in advance for the day. The party's in May and it isn't necessarily reliable BBQ weather in England, so we can't be too heavily BBQ oriented. (We've had some accidents in the past trying to BBQ indoors).
