Hosting a summer BBQ doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to impress your peers. Northeast Security Bank is bringing you tips and tricks for hosting a summer barbeque on a budget. You can easily entertain guests without breaking budget this summer with extravagant foods and drinks. Here are a few tips to save you money this summer if you plan to host a summer barbeque on a budget.

BBQ on a budget-

Less is more when it comes to meat– When having your friends over, they don’t expect you to provide steak and chicken for everyone. You can watch local grocer ads for sales on burgers, brats and hot dogs. If it’s a special event, you could ask everyone to chip in for more expensive meat like steak and chicken. Or have a party and make it clear to have everyone bring their own meat. If you have plans to make kabobs, add more grilled vegetables than meat to lessen the expense of meat.

Ask guests to bring sides– A potato salad or macaroni dish goes a long way when it comes to feeding a larger group of people. You could also ask your guests to bring a side dish to the barbeque to make the event less stressful on your wallet. If you do not want to have others bring sides to the party, you can easily find budget-friendly side dishes to make on Pinterest.

Utensils and plates– With a little bit of time and thought, you can stick within your budget when it comes to plates and utensils. If you’re comfortable, you can use the plates and utensils you already have on hand in your home. If you’re not comfortable with that, the local dollar stores have utensils and paper plates available in different colors and designs.
