Just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t have a BBQ. Here are some tips from DealDash to have an awesome budget BBQ.
Backyard BBQ’s are one of the most popular activities to do during the Spring and Summertime. The weather is getting warmer, so most likely you would want to enjoy the fresh air. Throwing a BBQ is an extraordinary way to enjoy the weather and bring family and friends together. Some people think that you have to spend a lot of money on BBQ food and activities. That is not true. Here are three ways to throw a barbeque on a budget, from DealDash.
Save Money on Meat
You can’t have a BBQ without meat right? When you are throwing a BBQ, you might be tempted to buy the top-quality cuts of meats, but that can eat up your budget. You should go for ground beef instead of buying steak and purchase hot-dogs instead of expensive sausages. Your guests will still love the food although you are saving money. If you simply must have steak for your BBQ there are many cheaper cuts of meat such as a 7-bone steak or a petite filet that you can purchase instead of ribeyes.
Activities for Entertainment
You don’t have to spend a lot of money on activities. If you want to entertain the kids you can have a water balloon toss, blow bubbles, or just put on some music and dance. Make sure you just enjoy yourself and talk with your family and friends. It does not have to be expensive to create some activities for your BBQ. If you want to personalize the day you can make a special playlist for your BBQ that will get everyone dancing.
Ask Your Guests to Help
It is important to ask your guests to bring a dish to share, potluck style. You can cover the main dish, grilled meat, but your guests can cover the side dishes. This will help you save money on food. If your guests have any dietary need or allergies it is important for them to bring food that they can eat. If your guest isn’t much of a cook you can suggest that they pick up some bottled water and soda for the BBQ.
