Long time site lurker and this is my first post.
The weather in So Cal is starting to feel like Summer and we have family coming in from out of town to visit so I want to BBQ. I can cook anything (meat, veggies, etc...) on the grill so I just need some ideas for a party for 8 people.
A few weeks back we had about 12 people over. Started with a Peruvian salad (corn, feta, mint, radishes) with a fresh mint dressing. I then grilled\smoked 2 tri-tips, grilled some chicken breasts and served it with a cilantro and mint chimichurri. I also grilled asparagus and made a sweet potato hash. Served dinner with a few bottles of Malbec from Argentina. Everyone loved it...
Any ideas are appreciated... I am thinking of maybe doing fish but don't want to spend a fortune on fresh fish.
