What are you planning to cook for the holiday?

I'm doing burgers for 21 friends and family members. I'll grind equal parts brisket, sirloin and chuck short ribs along with 21 slices of bacon which I will grill rare/med rare.
I'm doing 5 different burgers
1: Southwest---with fajita rub,queso blanco, grilled red and poblano peppers and avocado relish
2: Philly cheese steak---garlic salt and pepper, provolone, sauteed onions, mushrooms and peppers
3:BBQ burger---BBQ rub, smoked Gouda, bacon, grilled onions, BBQ sauce and a fried egg
4: Pub burger---salt, pepper, cheddar, bacon, fried egg, lettuce, tomato and onions
5: Black and Blue---Blackened rub, crumbled Gorgonzola and fried egg

along with corn, potato salad, slaw and maybe a shrimp ceviche as an appetizer

I sure wish I was on your guest list Jim!! Sounds just fabulous!!

It will just be the two of us, we're planning on grilled lamb kabobs, but don't know what else yet.

Kim's going to throw a couple of steaks on the grill, and we'll probably have a nice salad with it, since I have all those sugar snap peas.
We get by with a little help from our friends

as far as I know, it will just be the 4 of us. We will probably grill burgers.
I might make them our "Luau burgers" which have a grilled pineapple ring and a bit of barbacue sauce on them served on an onion bun
