I am ecstatic, thrilled, super duper excited (okay you get the picture) that it is pretty much BBQ season!!! Yes I don’t think it officially starts until memorial day weekend so I am one week ahead of myself but hey, I am a warm weathered girl and I will jump the gun anytime it comes to warm weather activities.
BBQ’s are a blast and usually everyone chips in and brings their favorite dish… but just in case you find yourself planning the entire thing, here are a list of my favorite barbecue dishes. From an amazing side dish to the most refreshing summertime drink, your whole spread is covered with our Perfect BBQ Roundup!
Pulled Pork Sandwiches
Your main dish is covered. Seriously though, how delicious do these look? And coleslaw on a pulled pork sandwich is the real deal.

It’s always fun to offer up little appetizers or finger foods at BBQ’s. And since kabobs are super easy to prepare, cook and eat, they are pretty much perfect for a backyard shenanza.

Do these not look amazing?? For your seafood loving guests, be sure to add a few of these babies to your menu. Even if you aren’t a fish fan, I am pretty sure these will still rock your world.

BBQ Baked Beans
So I have a confession. Baked beans are one of my very favorite BBQ foods. Annnd (I’m ashamed) I usually eat them the next day for breakfast, cold. Okay there I said it. I am a real life baked bean addict. But they are sooo good!

Sorry, it’s not really a BBQ if there isn’t a pasta salad present. I have made a super similar one and it is to die for! Plus if you have extras it’s a good little snack throughout the week.

I came from a family where food is pretty much the center of every function… and we always have multiple sides to choose from… so if your family is like me, here is another tasty side to choose from.

Coolers of soda work just great, but…. it’s kind of fun to serve up something fun and fancy.

Homemade Ice Cream

And last but not least, because every BBQ needs two dessert choices, some carmelitas. These cookie bars are to die for good.
