Labor Day 2017, Grillin & Chillin or Up in Smoke?

Anything special being planned? Pork ribs are on sale at Penn Dutch. I'm thinking baby backs on the Egg, ABTs, slaw or P salad and maybe some beans.

I can't top that, Roch.

We're having a quiet weekend with a small cookout on Monday. #1 Daughter is coming with SIL and grandson to enjoy the pool before it closes for the season. Also GD and SO's sister and BIL.

The menu is still under discussion.

We're supposed to have somewhere between 25 and 40 people over for a cook out this weekend. It was originally planned for Saturday, but I think the weather's going to make us change it to Sunday.

So far the menu is a couple of London Broils, sausage and peppers, hot dogs, baked ziti, potato and mac salads, a mixed green salad.

Desserts will be what the guests bring.

I'll first restock my stash of Kingsford charcoal double blue bag specials. All the big box stores will have them on sale like they always do during the spring and summer holidays.
Then I'll grill something on Monday, not exactly sure what though...

Daughter and her SO are coming over Sunday. She requested ribs, but I may just push back and cook something else.

Truth be told, I don't care for ribs. The only reason I ever made them was because my ex loved them. I reached a point where I made pretty good ribs, too. But I still don't like them.

I know that's probably bordering on blasphemous, but it's true.

Nothing in particular. Didn't realize until yesterday that this was a holiday weekend. Okay with us. Just probably will kick back and be ultra-lazy. Maybe take something already prepared out of the freezer. No "labor" for us on Labor Day.

Grill smoked spareribs. I have both apple and hickory woods for smoking.
Andy's ranch potato salad. I just said I'm adding bacon before checking out the recipe. Yay, it already has bacon.

BLT's are in the scheme of thingsfor sure, and pesto something or another too. Otherwise, grilled burgers/brats/dogs/chicken, whatever Dx is up for.

I'll be working Saturday and Monday. I figure it's labor day, I'll labor.

Sunday I'll probably grill or smoke something.
