What recipes are a staple that you have to have or the cookout just doesn't seem complete

For me personally it's not a cookout without Deviled Eggs and Coleslaw. I know there will be a bunch of grilled and smoked meats but without those to side dishes it's just not the same.

Backyard BBQ Food Safety

Here are a few tips to make sure all those side dishes are served properly to prevent food borne illness

  • Keep any cold dishes on ice and wrapped until it's time to serve. Have separate utensils for each dish.
  • Too keep dishes like pasta salad, potato salad and coleslaw cold serve in a small bowl place into a larger bowl with ice. This will keep the side dish cold longer. Once the ice has melted its tome to put away.
  • Keep an Instant Read thermometer along with alcohol wipes to check temperatures of hot and cold food.
