The Checklist Every Backyard BBQ Host Needs

Celebrate the precious, last wakin’ moments of the warmth and sun with a backyard BBQ your neighbors won’t be able to resist. Here’s all you need to pull it off:

A delicious BBQ spread.

Catered by Sonny’s, of course. Order up enough slow-smoked BBQ favorites, from heapin’ piles of Brisket to Pulled Pork sandwiches, plus plenty of Sidekicks to please your hungry crowd. Don’t forget the sweet tea! Swing by to pick it up before the party starts or let us serve it up to your guests if you’ve got a larger gatherin’ in the works.

A great playlist.

Goin’ all out? Nothin’ beats live music from a local band. Better yet, play your favorite Spotify playlist. Just make sure it’s somethin’ upbeat, like our Sweet Sauce playlist, which you can download here.

Good times.

Sure, the BBQ is the star of the show, but your crowd needs entertainin’ too. We’re talkin’ everyone’s favorite backyard games like cornhole, hula hoops for the little ones, or and a football to throw around.

Good looks.

Throw down some gingham tablecloths, put together simple mason jar floral centerpieces, and hang up some budget-friendly string lighting to really set the mood.

Good company.

When it comes to backyard BBQs, we say the more, the merrier. Invite your family, your neighbors, your friends. This is a chance for everyone to get to know each other. And there’s no better way to make new friends than over a rack of ribs.

So whatcha waitin’ for? Jot down a guest list, check out your local Sonny’s catering menu, then give us a call.

Don’t forget to show us how it all went down. Tag your backyard BBQ pics on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #SonnysBBQ.
