How to organize your barbecue at home
Even being a small relaxed party, does not mean that you should not cherish by the organization and even by a special decoration for the occasion. Therefore, the table decoration, the accompaniments and the meats can contain some care to make everything even more pleasant. Let's go to the organization tips:
Divide the environment into sections
The sectorization of the environment facilitates movement and organization among the guests (especially if the meeting becomes a real party with many people circling the environment!). Therefore, it is a good idea to divide the categories by theme, for example: salads and sauces, meat area, accompaniment area, desserts area. This can even be placed on a single table, but it is important to group and maintain some sort of separation between the different dishes.
All barbecue grill items and fixtures
In addition to the tables for the food to be served, the meat-making area, the center of the whole barbecue, should be thought of in all its details! It is always good to separate all the utensils that will be used and even utensils reserves if you have, as well as a good disposition of already seasoned meats and vegetables that can also go to the grill. The idea is to leave everything at hand and facilitate the work of those who are in charge of the barbecue, in addition to the production, the person can also enjoy the party.
Always frozen drinks
Regardless of the drinks chosen to be part of your barbecue, it is imperative that they are always cold! That way, to save the refrigerator or freezer from a constant open and close, a good option is to invest in coolers or improvise one easily. For this, a bucket serves, but if it is made of metal it is even more indicated as it helps at the time of cooling. Choose, of course, a bucket that has a size that allows at least half of it to be filled with ice and can still accommodate all your drinks. That way, you can position this cooler closer to your guests and let them serve with the assurance that the drinks will not heat up. Perfect for hot days! Just do not forget to leave it away from the heat of the barbecue.
