Backyard BBQ Party Ideas

The fall season is officially here and soon the temperatures will be falling. Now is the time to get out and take advantage of the nice autumn weather. What better way to enjoy the beautiful weather than a backyard bbq? Invite your family and friends to bring a side or dessert and plan a cookout for them. The Barn-B-Que Smokehouse loves a good backyard bbq! In this week’s blog, your Lake of the Ozarks restaurant will give you some ideas for the best backyard bbq party!


Go with the season and put out some seasonal d├ęcor. This doesn’t have to be anything to extravagant. Some fun tablecloths and some small pumpkins and gourds can make for some fun decorations.

Hang String Lights

If your party will run into the evening hours, some string lights can keep the party alive. String lights can also set a cozy environment, so grab some blankets and get comfortable after getting your belly full.

Fire Pit

If the evening gets to chilly, have the fire pit ready. This is a great place for your guests to hang out and strike up a good conversation after the sun goes down.

Bring out the Bar Cart

Nothing goes better with some bbq meats than some cocktails. Preparing a rolling cart with your favorite drinks is a great way to keep the party outside. If you have beer or other drinks you need to keep cold, us a trough or wheelbarrow to keep the fall rustic theme.

The Main Course

Now that you have the stage prepared its time to get the menu planned. With your guests bringing the side dishes and desserts, wow them with some fantastic bbq. Below are a few easy bbq ideas for you.

Burgers and Hotdogs – A backyard is wouldn’t be complete without some burgers and dogs. These are great for the young ones and the young at heart.

Dry Rub Ribs – These are simple to prepare. Prepare with some spices and smoke these to perfection, no sauce needed!

Steaks – Who doesn’t like a nice juicy steak? Choose your favorite cuts and grill those bad boys! Your guests will love the chef!
