We're having a bar-b-que in a couple weeks and I want to make things as simple as I can for myself, the bar-b-que chef, as the event is more about the beer, comaradarie, wine, friendship, beer, getting together, wine, and beer. My wife will be making her famous baked beans and potato salad, other friends will be bringing cole slaw and other salads and I've got the tongs. So I'm just planning on simple burgers and hot dogs, but I'd like good ones. Are the best ready-made patties at Costco? For hot dogs, I always liked Hebrew National, but I haven't bought any in years. Is there a better choice? Also, are there mass-produce buns that are a step above? FWIW, I live in Southern California.
