Hosting a large or even small group of people for an event can be a bit stressful.
My wife and I have hosted quite a few football Sundays
and weekend BBQ's over the years as well as owning our own BBQ catering company
Here are a few of the many things we have learned over the years about hosting a BBQ party
Timing is crucial
Although typically not so crucial in our house
Some of the people will show up much later than expected, while others are busy yelling at the football game on TV and chasing their kids and or dogs around the house. Quite often people will show up that we weren't expecting or that we have never even met. "The more the merrier"
That being said, having food ready when you told people it would be, or at least somewhat close,
is always a good thing, weather you're hosting a casual BBQ or a formal holliday dinner
Being more prepared will give you more time to spend with friends and family and just plain enjoy the day
Or more time listening to your drunk uncle's inappropriate jokes
