Kim's going to fire up the smoker Sunday, and do a whole beef brisket, 12 racks of ribs, and a couple of 2 lb. "fatties". A fatty is a roll of pork sausage that's been rolled in Cajun (or your favorite) seasoning and smoked whole.
I'll put my Killer Baked Beans together in the speckled roaster for DH to cook on top of the smoker. I'm also making potato salad, using my regular recipe plus a packet of Italian dressing mix. We're buying slaw from Kentucky Fried Chicken, because theirs is pretty good and I am lazy. I like my Carolina Slaw better, but I can only do so much. Maybe I'll doctor it up a little.
We'll have assorted breads, condiments, pickles and sliced tomatoes on the side, and I have two people bringing desserts.
I invited most all of our friends, but it's a busy weekend, and you never know for sure who will show up. One girl, who has to work Sunday, is coming over for leftovers on Monday.

Paul and I have talked about roasting a whole lamb (yes, in a pit in the front yard) so much that one of our friends has decided to do it. We'll bring Greek green beans and pita and others will bring other Greek treats. It'll be a day of Feasting and lots of drinking. It's a dang good thing we all have Monday off to recover. Ozo and tequila make for one whacky head ache. lol!

No clue what we are having. My friend has invited us over for Sunday, and she hasn't let me know what to bring. Note to self, call her today. Monday, our church is having a cook out and we may go to that.

I see a spanokopita in your near future, yum. Can I come too? Sounds like an ozo-killer (quila). Sign me up for one of those. Can I have your recipe for the greek green beans? TIA
