3 Great Sides that goes with a Backyard Bar-B-Que

The first thing you talk about when planning a Bar-B-Que with friends and family is the meat.  Once you have your meat chosen next you will need to discuss the sides that you will serve with the meal.  In this week’s blog, we will highlight 3 sides that we think go great with Bar-B-Que



Deviled Egg Potato Salad

This potato salad is a favorite when serving with bar-b-que.  It’s a creamy classic side that only takes about 30 minutes to prepare. 
You will need the following to make 12 servings of potato salad:
     3 lbs. of potatoes
     9 eggs
     1 diced sweet yellow onion
     1 ½ cups on mayonnaise
     ¼ cup of yellow mustard
     ½ tsp. of salt
     ½ tsp. of pepper

You can also add additional items:  diced dill pickles and herbs that you like. 

Instructions: 
  1. Rinse your potatoes under warm water.  Don’t be afraid to give them a little scrub.  Dice the potatoes in small pieces.
  2. Fill a large pot will water, the water should be about 1 inch over the potatoes.  Add some salt to bring to a boil.  Cook the potatoes until they are tender.
  3. Boil the eggs then peel them.  Place the eggs in the refrigerator to cool. 
  4. Dice the onion into very small pieces.
  5. After the eggs have cooled, chop the eggs and add them, the mayonnaise, and mustard to a bowl with salt and pepper. 
  6. In a large bowl add the potatoes and onion.  Take the deviled eggs from the other bowl and add on top of the potatoes and onions.  Mix everything well. 
  7. After everything is mixed, you will add any additional items to the salad and mix. 
  8. Cool and serve

Corn on the Cob

Kids and adults both love corn on the cob, especially when it is grilled.  Some choose to grill the corn after being husked while others love the husk on. This recipe we will leave the husks on.  Make sure you grab enough ears because there won’t be any leftovers. 

Ingredients you will need: 

     12 corn cobs
     Butter
     Salt
     Pepper

This is one of those dishes that everyone can season to their liking. 

  1. Pull back the husks and remove as much of the silk as you can from the cob.
  2. Cut off a slice of butter and place on the cob.
  3. Season to your liking with salt and pepper. 
  4. Place the husks back around the cob covering the butter.
  5. Place on the grill for about 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the cobs from the grill and serve. 

Make sure you have butter and salt and pepper so each guest can season the cobs more if they would like.
