7 Fall BBQ Tips & Tricks
  1. Sear autumn vegetables:
    Summer standbys are fine, but you can elevate your cookout by grilling or searing cauliflower, brussels sprouts or butternut squash.
  2. Try potluck:
    A week before your barbecue, start a text thread with suggested side dishes and ask your guests to bring one side each.
  3. Gather game options:
    Think outdoors AND indoors: cornhole or a wiffle ball set, but also jenga or board games.
  4. Stage from the fridge:
    Clean out your refrigerator before the event to make sure you have enough space for uncooked meats and vegetables, cold salads and condiments.
  5. Have a bug plan:
    Non-toxic or natural repellents help everyone enjoy your outdoor space without distraction (or bites). For example, mosquitoes hate citrus, and you can stage your table with halved lemons or limes to keep them away. You’ll find dozens of recipes for natural bug repellent online.

  6. Fall beverages:
    Seasonal beer is big in October, but also offer the designated drivers non-alcohol options like sparkling cider.
  7. Ice, ice, baby:
    The weather may be coolish, but you can never have enough ice. Stock up!
