I pulled the short straw and have to cook dinner for 8 in a rented condo just a couple of hours after driving 6 hours to get there. Condo is generally fairly well equipped with pots, pans, utensils, but never know for sure until we get there, but no barbeque. One of the 8 is a strictly meat and potatoes kind of guy, the others are a bit more adventuresome, but a few can't handle too much spice (heat). I am great with following a recipe, but don't have the greatest abilty to just "throw" stuff together on my own. There is a Harris Teeter about 20 minutes from there where I can pick up whatever I can't bring from home in a cooler. Menu and recipe suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
