Backyard BBQ Fun: No Grill? No Problem
(NAPSA) - When the weather's warm, gather friends and family for a backyard BBQ-without the grill!
Fortunately, "a backyard BBQ can be a simple affair," says Stephanie Ashcraft, New York Times best-selling cookbook author and mom of four. "Start with picnic or card tables festively draped with checkered cloths. Top the tables with paper plates and a pitcher of cool lemonade. For the main attraction, serve everyone's favorite: pulled pork BBQ."
For the menu, nothing's simpler than letting guests build their own sandwiches. Place the BBQ in a large serving dish, put out the fixings and let everyone else do the rest. Guests can choose from a variety of toppings such as coleslaw, red onions and tomatoes. They can enjoy the BBQ served on top of a bun or plain if they prefer. For the sides, serve up such standards as potato salad, pickles and baked beans. "Don't forget the dessert," says Ashcraft. "Brownies pair perfectly with BBQ for a sweet end to a flavorful meal."
To bring the party indoors and out of the heat, Ashcraft recommends serving an exotic twist on the summer standard: California BBQ Pizza.
