Sides for BBQ

We are invited to a pot luck dinner at a friend's home on Wednesday. She is furnishing the BBQ and accompaniments, and has assigned me and another woman to bring side dishes. I'm thinking baked beans. I have a recipe for baked white beans that is very good. Think this will go well?

Baked beans are always welcomed, IMHO.

Have you posted your recipe?

Baked beans will be perfect. I also like Potato salad.

your friend said, "She is furnishing the BBQ and accompaniments, and has assigned me and another woman to bring side dishes."

I think she will have beans, and salads..

I think she means "something else" like drinks and Devild Eggs!

True. You probably should ask, though I still would like your recipe.

The hostess is supplying the BBQ, "accompaniments" and margaritas and beer, soft drinks, etc. I will check with her, so that I am not bringing anything that she plans to have. Also should check with my other friend who has been asked to bring a side dish.

I will post the recipe for you Dawg.

agreed about what does "accompaniments" mean?

for me, sides should be a salad, baked beans with bacon, steak fries or salt crusted baked spuds, cole slaw, fat back sauteed collard greens, and corn bread (sweet in the north, savory in the south. jalapeno as an option in either).
