Top 5 Items to Provide at a Quality Cookout

Todays Date: October 18, 2018

It happens all the time, some friends or family (or both) get together and decide to plan a cookout. It is probably happening right now. Whether the event is a holiday, like the 4th of July, Memorial, Labor Day, or it is just a Saturday afternoon and a good time to relax after a long week at work, it is always a good time for a Cookout.

Good cookouts, just don’t “happen”, the planner and the host have to make them happen. Cookouts are like any good thing in life, they are only as rewarding as the time we put into them. So, before anyone starts planning their next cookout, outlined below you will find 5 helpful hints that will make planning and the event run a whole lot smoother.

1.#A good guest list – One of the key factors to the enjoyment of life involves the people we surround ourselves with.Often times we find ourselves depressed, sad, anxious, angry, fearful, and guess what – we have surrounded ourselves with people who feel the same way. The contrary is true – that is to say, happy, confident, friendly courtesy people, will create a happy, confident, friendly and courtesy environment. Thus, choose your guest list carefully. Invite only those who will bring a positive and friendly attitude to your cookout. Cookouts are like life and a barrel of apples – one bad one, can spoil the entire bunch.

2.#Plan Early and Prepare Early – Don’t wait until the last minute to go shopping, invite your guests, or ice down the beer. Get everything done with plenty of time to spare. I recommend having at least 2 hours to your-self before the guests start to arrive. This will allow time for a nap, self preparation,shower, etc.

3.#Energy – Make sure that the first ten minutes or so, after each guest arrives, you demonstrate energy, joy,and happiness. Just like the notion of there is never a better time to make a first impression, the same is true for a cookout. Those first ten minutes (especially before the alcohol beverages begin to flow) are critical in setting the “mood” for the festivities. Everyone will look to the host to see how they should behave – set a good example!

4.#Adult Beverages – Now, not everyone in this world enjoys a drink as much as the next guy; matter of fact some of us, do not drink at all. However, if you plan on serving alcoholic beverages at your cookout. The following are a must.

a.#Serve your beer cold – Nothing is more of a letdown than drinking a warm beer.Thus, ice your beers down in a quality cooler for at least an hour before they are cracked. Once the beer is served offer a chilled mug to keep it cold and/or a variety of koozies.

b.#Have good mixers – If the hard stuff is being served, have something to mix it with.

5.# Sit Back Relax and Enjoy – If the first four criteria are met, don’t worry, once the guests arrive, just enjoy the show!!!
