However, many people are curious about BBQ parties and want to know everything about it. That’s why as a self-declared BBQ party expert, I’m here to help you.

By reading the entire article, you’ll learn what you should buy for a BBQ, how to organize a BBQ party, what foods you should list for the party, some of my personal tips, and many other things that no one has told you before. Hence consider reading this entire article before arranging or joining a BBQ party:

What Tools Do You Need For A BBQ?

To arrange a BBQ party, you will need tools for a BBQ first. I will be giving a very brief idea about the basic tools required for a BBQ for your convenience.

Here’s a list of tools under a table with a short description:

Requiring Tools For A BBQThe Work Of This Tools
A Gas Grill / A Charcoal GrillTo cook the desired food in it.
A SpatulaTo flip and turn the meat over the grill.
BrushTo brush oil or spices over the meats during grilling. 
Meat Thermometer To check the temperature and ensure doneness.
Tongs To put the meat on the grill or to take the meat out of it.

These are some basic and necessary tools to cook anything on a BBQ. If you are planning to hold a BBQ party, these are the items that you will need the most.

It goes without saying that a grill is a must to barbecue any food item of your desire. Tongs and spatulas are very basic things to use while barbecuing; as the meats are piping hot, you cannot touch them with bare hands. So to move them from one place to another, tongs and spatulas are needed.

A spatula is used for flipping the food items mainly. You can never use your hands for it. Also, the fat of the meat makes it quite sticky to flip them quickly with any other tools, so a spatula is an ideal choice. 

Foods often tend to get dry over a BBQ pan, that is why it is needed to brush oils and spices over them from time to time. Therefore, a basting brush is required.

People often ignore the thermometer and rely on their instinct to check the doneness of meat. But using a thermometer is always advised to avoid any harm that might occur from uncooked meat.

Besides these tools, many more tools are available in the market.

What Are The Popular BBQ Foods?

Here I list a few foods that are popular across the world for BBQ-ing:

  • Steaks:

The term “steak” refers to a thin cut of meat sliced from a bigger piece of flesh. There are steaks of various kinds, such as fish, beef, chicken, etc. which you can prepare for your BBQ party. 

  • BBQ Chicken: 

Barbeque chicken is one of the easiest items to cook dishes to make at a party. People would love to have barbecued chicken at a BBQ party. 

Barbecuing the chicken on a grilling pan can be fun and exciting during any party. It gives off a great, fun atmosphere. Not to mention that the result is always fantastic.

  • Vegetable BBQ:

Some might think adding vegetables to parties can get a bit boring, but it is not true at all. Adding more vegetables to your food list can do no harm; in fact, it is excellent for your health.

Vegetables can taste as great as meat if you cook it correctly and add enough spices according to your taste.

3 Different Types Of Steak For BBQ With Best Cooking Method: 

In this part of my article, I’ll discuss 3 different types of steak for BBQ with the best cooking method:

1. Best Method Of Beefsteak Cooking:

Don’t you think a BBQ party feels bland and boring without a perfectly made beefsteak? Beefsteak is the most popular type of steak among steaks. It is popular in western countries and a perfect drink to serve to your guests at a party on the eastern side of the world as well.

Food lovers are really fond of the dish. Beef steak is such a dish that is loved by all at a BBQ party. It is an excellent choice for the hosts to please their guests!

I will now show you some ways to make beef steak for a BBQ party-

  • Preparation Of The Ingredients:

The first step is to gather all of the components you’ll need to create the perfect beef steak. For example, the spices you’ll use in the steak will need to be prepared ahead of time. You’ll also want to make sure you have all of the appropriate utensils within reach, so you don’t have to go somewhere else when cooking.

  • Preparation Of The Grill: 

Heat the charcoal and butter the grill before you start cooking. There are several stages to take before beginning to cook anything in order to achieve the ideal steak on a grill. They are as such:

  • Choose and collect the charcoal needed to light up the grill.
  • To avoid the meat getting stuck on the pan, you need to butter your pan or brush oil on your pan. You can also spray oil on the pan.
  • Heat the charcoal in the grill to ensure heat is provided to cook the food. Ensure direct and indirect heating system. 
  • Air circulation is needed to ensure proper and even spread of heat.
  • Seasoning Your Steak:

The most essential and significant duty to make the perfect steak is to season your meat properly. You must season the meat to bring out the flavor of the meat or the taste of the steak. 

Seasoning is a method of enhancing the flavor of meats by adding various spices or even just salt and pepper. The steak would be boring and bland if it weren’t spiced and appropriately seasoned.

  • Change The Sides Of The Steaks:

The steak must be cooked evenly and thoroughly. In addition, the meat’s sides must be replaced on a regular basis. To ensure that the meat is cooked evenly, switch sides halfway during the cooking process. 

Switching sides allows the heat to distribute evenly and the meat to cook evenly. If you don’t flip the sides regularly, the meat will become scorched and charred on one part while remaining undone on the other side.

2. Best Method Of Chicken Steak Cooking:

Chicken steak preparation is not only quick and easy to make but also requires minimal supplies. I will be showing you a recipe for making a chicken steak with breast pieces as this piece is loved by many at a party, but consider that this recipe applies to other pieces of chicken equally as well.

To prepare a chicken steak, you need to follow the steps below:

  • Prepare And Collect Everything You Need:

The first and foremost thing to prepare any dish is to prepare the items needed to cook beforehand. 

The basic items required can be:

  • Olive oil,
  • Butter,
  • Soya sauce,
  • Oven safe pan,
  • Garlic, onion, rosemary, etc
  • Chicken breast piece or any piece you prefer. 
  • Pound The Chicken:

Before cooking the steak, it is very much important to pound the meat, or else it will not turn out to be a steak but a different dish. 

For pounding the chicken, take a chicken piece or Take two chicken breast pieces and pound them until they’re flattened. 

The meat should be about half an inch after pounding it. 

  • Marinating: 

Marinating chicken is very important. It helps to infuse the flavors in the chicken even more.

 If you marinate the chicken, the chicken pieces become soft and juicier. The steaks become even more tasty.  The steaks take less time to cook if you marinate them before cooking the steak.

So you must marinate your chicken at least for an hour before cooking.

  • Making The Steak:

After marinating the chicken or the chicken pieces now, it is time to prepare the chicken. 

To make the chicken steak, you first need to heat the pan with butter and oil. 

Then you will have to put the spice rubbed chicken on the pan, and you need to start cooking it.

You need to put it on the grill pan and grill it on a slow flame. After both the sides are cooked properly, your steak is ready to serve.

3. Best Method Of Fish Steak Cooking:

Fishes are a great source of protein. To make it taste better, you can make steak out of fish. To make the fish steak at a BBQ party, you need to follow a certain amount of steps.

Below, I will give you some steps that help you to grill the perfect fish steaks for a BBQ party:

Step 1:  Prepare All The Ingredients:

The first step is that you need to prepare all the ingredients to make the fish steak for the BBQ party. Ensure all the utensils are at your arms’ length.

Step 2: Coat The Fish Into Slashes:

Marination is essential for every cooking, especially in the barbecue. 

To make this delicious dish, lightly coat the fish slices in oil and set them aside on a plate. All the spices and salt should all be ground together.

To make a paste for a whole fish, add oil with the spices and mix them together. Apply it all over the fish and set it away for 15 minutes to be marinated.

Step 3: Cook It:

After that, you need to set your grill and prepare it for cooking. 

Once your grill is set, then you can put the marinated fish on the grill. Set the fish on the grill over a slow flame. Simmer it to ensure it is evenly cooked. 

Serve the fish steak with some lemon juice.

How Do You Make Barbecue Chicken? (7 Easy Steps)

Here I am showing you the ways to make a barbecue chicken for your BBQ party under the 7 easy steps:

Step 1- Preparing Ingredients:

You need to prepare the ingredients to cook the chicken barbecue for your BBQ party. 

But, first, you can buy the ingredients, such as the proper chicken or desired chicken pieces, and purchase the spices and the sauces according to your choice and preference.

If you are looking for a more simple dish for the party, then you can just go for salt and pepper. But the guests might want something extravagant!

Step 2- Marinating The Chicken:

The chicken needs to be marinated for the spices to be infused in it. 

To marinate the chicken, you will need to mix all the spices and sauces with the chicken and keep it aside for at least one hour.  You may also keep it overnight to get the best result.

Brining is also necessary to keep the chicken juicy. It does not make the chicken salty. Instead, it enhances the taste and makes the chicken more succulent, especially the breast pieces. 

Step 3- Preparing The Grill For The Chicken BBQ:

After marinating the chicken, you will need to get the grill prepared for cooking the chicken for the BBQ party.  

Chicken meats tend to get stuck if the grill is not oiled adequately. To avoid such a thing from happening, it is needed to lubricate the grill pan with a brush or butter it. You can also spray oil on it. 

Step 4- Putting The Chicken On The Grill:

After you are done marinating and brining the chicken for a specific amount of time, you now have to put the chicken that you had prepared for the barbeque for the BBQ party over the grilling pan after you have finished preparing the grill.

It is an essential part to determine when to put the chicken. Or if you should put the chicken on direct heat or indirect heat. 

Different pieces of the chicken need a different heating process to cook evenly. Most parts should be put on direct heat at first. Then, after the sides get a bit charry, the chicken pieces should be moved to indirect heat.

Step 5- Ensure Proper Heat Distribution:

You need to make sure that the heat of the grill is set correctly. Then you need to put the chicken or chicken pieces according to their size in different batches. The small ones and the big ones should be set differently.

You need to change the chicken sides now and then make sure the heat is distributed evenly throughout the chicken. If you don’t change the sides religiously, then it may get overcooked at one side and under cooked at the other side. 

Step 6- Checking The Doneness of The Chicken:

After you are done cooking the BBQ chicken, you need to make sure to check the doneness of the chicken before serving it at the party before the guests.

There are a lot of thermometers available in the market for checking the meat’s temperature. By checking the temperature of the meat, you can be sure if the meat is perfectly cooked and ready to eat.

Step 7- Let The Chicken Cool Down:

You need to let the chicken get a bit cool before you decide to cut it into pieces and serve it before the guests at your BBQ party.

If you cut the chicken pieces right away after taking them out of the grill, the juices will get dried down. To ensure the meat remains juicier, you need to let it cool down a bit. No one is going to like a dry chicken at a party, will they?  

What Vegetables Are Good For BBQ?

Below I listed some vegetables that are good for BBQ:

  • Tomatoes:

Tomato is an excellent addition to your party. Tomatoes taste best when grilled.

While grilling, you need to grill them only halved, or you can grill them whole. When you put the tomato on the heat, they tend to explode and start leaking.

Tomatoes take about 10 minutes if cooked in half. They taste the best if mixed with salt and pepper. You can also smash them and mix them with herbs.

  • Eggplant:

Eggplants taste brilliant when grilled. It is one of my favorite ways to serve eggplants. Grilling gives the eggplant a smoky flavor which increases the taste of the eggplant. The eggplant becomes tender and super delicious. It is pretty similar to tomatoes.

You can also smash the eggplant like you can smash the grilled tomato with onions and chilies. Depending on the size of the eggplant or the pieces of the eggplant, it takes 5 minutes to 10 minutes to cook.

  • Zucchini:

Zucchini has a unique flavor to it. Though it is pretty similar to cucumber, it is best served cooked. It can be prepared in various ways, but grilling is my favorite.

You can choose either green or yellow. After picking your preferred zucchini now, you need to slice it before grilling.

Be careful not to cut it too thin. Zucchini takes about 5 minutes to 10 minutes to cook. Always remember not to overcook zucchini.

5 Top Non-Alcoholic Drinks For A BBQ Party:

Drinks are the life of the party. You cannot think of a party without any sort of drink. Here I will be talking about 5 top non-alcoholic drinks for a BBQ party that you can serve to the guests:

1. Fruit Punch Bowls:

The easiest way to make a drink and serve it to your guests at a party without letting them know how lazy you are is to make fruit punch bowls.

You can make fruit punches using fruits and sodas or carbonated drinks. The fruits that you can use to make fruit punches are as such-

  • Mango fruit punch
  • Strawberry fruit punch
  • Banana fruit punch
  • Watermelon fruit punch
  • Kiwi fruit punch

2. Strawberry Lemonade:

Who doesn’t like strawberries? I think everyone does! So if you are going for a fruity option, then strawberry can be a great choice. For that, you will need to follow the instructions below:

  • First: 

Firstly, you will need to get the utensils and the required ingredients like strawberries, lemons, sugar, water, and a saucepan. 

  • Second: 

Secondly, take the saucepan and mix up sugar and water together in it. Heat it up to bring a simmer.

  • Third:

You can avoid the ice if you want. Then, make a puree from the strawberries.

  • Fourth: 

For the finishing step, take a bowl to mix all the ingredients together. Then, combine the syrup that you prepared, the strawberry mixture, lemon juice, and some water, and prepare your strawberry lemonade. Ice cubes and mint leaves can be added for better results.

3. Raspberry Basil Sangria:

This recipe is specially made for those people at the party who love to have sangria but prefer the non-alcoholic version. The directions needed to follow are  mentioned below:

  • Take about 500ml of raspberry juice and 1 liter of orange juice.
  • Take some sugar according to your taste to add sweetness to it and balance the flavor.
  • Some basil leaves
  • Pieces of oranges and apples
  • Some ice cubes to chill the drink
  • After taking all the ingredients in a bowl, stir them to combine. 
  • Add ice cubes and mint leaves to serve

4. Virgin Pina Colada:

Virgin pina colada is mainly a tropical milkshake. A perfect drink to serve to your guests at a party. Its creamy sweet texture satisfies your sweet tooth, which also serves the purpose of a dessert. So it can cut off your dessert budget too!

To make virgin pina colada, you will need:

  • Bag of frozen pineapple pieces
  • One and a half cup of ice cream scoop (vanilla preferable)
  • Half a cup of coconut milk
  • Ice cubes


Take all the ingredients and blend them in a mixer. Serve it in a glass. You can top it with pineapple cubes and ice.

5. Juices:

Juices are now the newest trend in the party world. Many people nowadays prefer it healthy. It is the quickest way to get all the nutritional value of food and get a tasty drink as well. 

Juicing appears to be the quickest method to acquire everything–from good nutrients to bright skin and improved concentration–and it seems that the boom isn’t yet finished.

For parties, you just need to keep the ingredients fresh and simple. Ensure their availability and if the fruits are seasonal or not. 

You can set up a juice bar in your house while partying and can give anyone the responsibility to serve the guests, such as a bartender. 

To set the juice bar, you can use an old table with a suitable cloth over it. Take a nice juicer machine, and some best seasonal fruits cut into dice and cubes and some ice with it. These fruit juices are beneficial for your health and very tasty and giving them funny names can also make them interesting for your BBQ party.

3 Best BBQ Side Dishes:

The food item or dish which complements the main dish and enhances the flavor of the main dish is usually known as a side dish. Side dishes are commonly used at BBQ parties, and they add life to the main course.

It is a complementary addition to the main dish. You may use more than one side dish at your party. Here are the 3 best BBQ side dishes with details information:

1. Classic Coleslaw:

No BBQ can be complete without a classic coleslaw. I find this side dish to be the best among all the side dishes. To make a coleslaw dish, you will need:

  • Mayonnaise, as the base
  • Some diced carrots
  • Some diced cabbage 
  • Salt
  • Sour curd or lemon
  • Pepper 

After mixing all the ingredients together, put it in the refrigerator for some time. Coleslaw is best served cold. 

2. Potato Mashed:

You can serve mashed potatoes with your BBQ to the guests, and they will love it.

All you will need is mustard, egg, mayonnaise, pickles, and some green onions to garnish. 

The sweet and tangy flavor of this dish adds an extra kick to the BBQ. The mayonnaise adds to the creaminess, which goes perfectly with charred BBQ. The mustard and pickle make a great combo and amplifies the taste.

3. Chocolate Covered Cherry Pie Popsicles:

I really don’t know at all about you, but at a Barbecue party, I could very well make an entire feast out from the sides.

  • Pie dough bought from the store, a can of your favorite pie filling, chocolate sauce, butter, and sprinkles are all you’ll need to make this pie.
  • Simply cut out sets of pastry discs or fun and exciting shapes if you think fit, and pour a spoonful of the filling onto one side of each pair.
  • You need to brush the sides of the pie with water or milk and then press it down with a fork. While doing that, make sure to insert the popsicles.

After that, bake the pie and dip the baked pie into the chocolate sauce or melted chocolate.

3 Simple Recipes For The BBQ Party:

Here I’m going to give you my favorite 3 recipes that I often make at my BBQ party. They are very simple to make but too delicious to eat:

1. Peruvian Chicken With Peruvian Sauce:

Peruvian chicken is often served with a green sauce named Peruvian sauce.

You will need boneless chicken pieces for this recipe, and you’ll need to roast them until you are pleased with the charry-ness of the chicken.

To make the sauce, you will need green chilies, cilantro, lime, garlic, pepper, and you can add mayonnaise if you like. You need to serve the dish with cucumber, avocado, and cherry tomato salad.

2. The Masala Street Corn:

This dish is basically from India. Corns are grilled and seasoned with ghee, spices, and garam masala. The secret ingredient to the dish is a spice named Amchoor, which is basically a powder made from unripened dried mangoes. You can use a lime instead of it.

To make the dish, first, you just need to char the corn over the grill for about 15 minutes. Then, you need to add the garam masala, Amchoor, or lime to the ghee and make a wet paste. Rub the paste over the charred corn and grill it a bit. Your masala street corn is ready.

3. Tacos:

Tacos are mainly from Mexico, and they are very flavorful. Tacos are perfect for a BBQ party, and it is pretty easy to make. To start with, you will need tortillas; either you can buy them from stores, or you can just make them at home. 

For the steak inside, you can take chicken or beef, whichever you prefer. I personally prefer beef. Make sure to shred the steak into small pieces. Make a salsa for the fillings inside with tomato, lime, and some cilantro.

What Do You Do At A BBQ Party?

It is common to remain confused about what to do attending at a party, especially when you are the host. To be frank, a guest also needs to know what is required to be done or needed to be followed at a BBQ party.

  • If You Are A Host:
  1. Your first priority should be your guests. From their food to their comfort and entertainment, you need to ensure everything. 
  2. Remember, you are the one who invited them to the party, they didn’t come here themselves. So, it is your moral obligation to take good care of them.

  5. Don’t misbehave with other guests as well.

How Do You Decorate A BBQ?

Another part of your concern related to a BBQ party might be the decoration of it. 

The decorations should be simple yet elegant. Here are some ideas regarding decorations listed by me below:

  • Themes:

You can always select a theme for the party. It is great fun. Ask your guests to dress up in a specific manner and decor your party place in that way to make it look exciting and fun.

For example, you can ask your guests to follow the Halloween theme, and you can decorate your place based on the Halloween theme as well.

  • Captions:

Captions are just a prop that helps to decorate your party in a modern and contemporary manner. You can have different captions for your party based on your theme. You can customize them or get them from any nearby store.

  • Balloons: 

Balloons are the life of the party. From a birthday party to a BBQ party, you can always decorate your place with balloons. No party is complete without balloons. A BBQ party can have different colors of balloons. Based on the theme of your party, you should select the color of the balloons.

For example, a party based on love will have red balloons, and if it is a Halloween-themed party, you can have green and black or silver and black balloons. Girlish-themed parties can have white and pink balloons.

  • Props:

Props are very important nowadays to decorate a party. You will need different kinds of props if you plan on a high-budget party. Even a low-budget one needs some props.

The table is a very good prop for your party to hold decorations and food. It is a must need for any BBQ party. Then comes chairs. To make sitting arrangements for your guests is a must if you are arranging the party outside of your house.

4 Unique Entertainment Ideas To Wow Your BBQ Party Guests:

You must be concerned about how to prevent your guests from feeling bored at your party and what you can do for them. Parties are all about entertainment. They are a great way of recreation and can add joy to our boring and monotonous life. 

To add life to your party, you can add many segments of games and amusement to your BBQ party.

Here are 4 unique entertainment ideas that will surely wow your BBQ party guests: 

1. Games:

To add life to your party, you can add many gaming segments. You can play games like:

  • Uno: This is a card game and a fascinating one.
  • Bingo: It allows more people to play and keeps people engaged.
  • Pillow Passing: It can be a great source of entertainment for the crowd where you pass the pillow till the music stops.
  • Truth And Dare: This is one of the most popular games. It is an excellent source of entertainment for everyone at the party.
  • Dumb Charade: This is another popular game where you have to act out a movie name by staying mum. Your teammates got to decipher the name of the movie.

2. Singing Competition: 

Another great source of entertainment can be a singing competition with or without a karaoke system. No matter how bad you sing, it is always fun to sing with your family and friends. It creates a beautiful moment of joy that reflects through your singing. 

It is not a life and death competition so that everyone will be light-hearted and non-judgemental. You don’t need to worry about your voice or your tune. Everyone can sing freely, either by using karaoke or with just a mic. If the party is in a small place with very few people, no mic is needed.

3. Dancing Arrangement:

One of the most fun and exciting ways to have fun is to dance. We tend to dance at almost every party, so a BBQ party is no exception. From singing on your own to arranging a music system, you can dance on whatever you want and however you want.

 It is your wish to decide how you want to have fun dancing! You may hire dancers to entertain your guests, but it is always more fun to dance yourselves. Guests will enjoy it more, and they’ll remember it for a long time.

4. Movie Projection:

Movie projection can be one of the unique ideas that not many people apply to their parties. This is not any regular or traditional medium to have fun or entertain your guests with.

Depending on the type of guests you have, you should select the genre of the movie. Not every film is suitable for every audience. 

If you are planning a BBQ party with your friends, then the type of movie you will choose will be different from how you would decide when the party will have your family members or children and senior citizens.

Choosing a lightweight family movie that is funny is a better option. Animated movies are the safest option to choose as they are both fun and safe to watch with people of all ages.

10 Tips To Have A Safe BBQ Party:

Being a host, it is your crucial duty and responsibility to ensure the safety of your guests. Here are some 10 tips regarding how to have a safe BBQ party:

  1. Check for any gas leaks before firing up the grill while using a gas grill.
  1. Clean your grill religiously. Ensure your grill is cleaned, or else the residue fat and grease may cause flare-ups.

  1. Never leave your grill unattended. Always keep on increasing or reducing the fire as per the need.
  1. Don’t turn on the gas while the lid is still closed if you are using a gas grill. It will build up gas inside the lid and cause accidents when you try to fire it up.
