Try cole slaw, cabbage is inexpensive and it makes up a lot!! I don't like all coleslaw but this recipe is delicious


1 sm-med head of cabbage -8 Cups finely chopped

1 carrot, shredded or diced

2 Tbsp onion, minced

1/2 Cup Mayo

1/4 Cup sour cream

1/4 Cup milk

1 1/2 Tbsp white vinegar

2 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice

1/3 Cup sugar

1/2 tsp salt

1/8 tsp pepper

Combine the cabbage, carrot and onion in a large bowl. Blend the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl. Add it to the cabbage, carrot, %26amp; onion, mix well. Cover %26amp; refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.

Options: Add grapes and/or apple chunks

And you must have beans at a BBQ.

Baked Beans

1 lb thick sliced bacon, chopped

1 lrg white onion, diced

3 28oz cans Bushes Original Recipe Beans

4 Tbls brown sugar

Heat a 4qt dutch oven on med-hi. Chop the bacon into small pieces and fry it in the dutch oven till crispy. Scoop it out into a bowl and set aside. Drain most of the bacon grease out of the dutch oven, leave about 4-6 Tbls. Add the diced onion to the grease and cook over med heat 4-5 min. Lower the heat and add 4 Tbls of brown sugar, stir and cook another 3-4 min. Stir it frequently to keep the sugar from burning. Add the Bushes Beans and bacon, stir well. Bake at 300* for

at least 30 min but preferably 2-3 hrs.

This is a really great, easy and inexpensive dessert that people always love.

Pudding Fluff

2 cps milk

2 sm box of Jell-o Instant Pudding any flavor you choose

16 oz container of Cool Whip

Graham Cracker or Oreo Cookie Crust

Put the milk in a mixing bowl, add the pudding mix. Whisk until blended, quickly fold in the Cool Whip. Scoop into the graham cracker or Oreo crust and refrigerate.

Cheesecake version, use a potato masher to blend 8oz of softened cream cheese into the milk before adding the pudding mix and use Vanilla pudding. I like layering the cream cheese version with chocolate. A can of berry or cherry pie filling is real good over the cream cheese version.How Do You Plan a BBQ With Food On the Cheap?
This great pulled pork is cheap and easy.


1 6-7 lb Pork Roast (Boston Butt/Shoulder)

Demon Pig BBQ Rub

2 bottles "Demon Pig BBQ Sauce"

Trim Excess fat from roast. Sprinkle with Demon Pig BBQ Rub.

Cook on grill with indirect heat at 225/250 degrees for 6 hours to an internal temp of 160 degrees. (This can be done in an oven or bbq smoker.)

Place in pan with 1/2 cup water, cover and place back on heat for one hour to finish. Remove from heat, let stand 30 minutes. Careful uncover. Let stand an additional 15 minutes.

Pull and chop meat to just under bite size pieces.

Warm "Demon Pig BBQ Sauce" slightly and mix thoroughly until lightly covered throughout meat. Serve additional sauce warm on the side.

Serve on buns with your favorite sides.

The beans are super also.
what about grilled chicken.. can do in advance.. slice up and have grilled peppers and onions on the side with the fixings for fajitas? It would be easier and probably cheaper than hot dogs
