The GF and I love having cookouts with family and friends. The menu is usually decided on by how many ppl we’re expecting.

Hamburgers, hotdogs and chicken are the norm for a large gathering.

That doesn’t look like it could serve more than one person. :)
Yes, the last time my family came it was 8 and we cooked three ribs of beef but it was bigger and there was one left at the end all served with baked potatoes

Leg of lamb, Greek style. Which means no mint jelly. That stuff is nasty.

Edit to add: sometimes a nice lasagna. Easy to make ahead of time, minimal fuss to serve, along with garlic bread, leaving you more time with your guests and less in the kitchen.
In winter, I prefer to serve spaghetti with meatballs but a lasagna is good too.

If it's more than 8 people, burgers and brats Wisconsin style. I grill them and my wife simmers them in beer. If it's a smaller group I'll grill a big salmon cutting it into 4 inch slices with a soy sauce and brown sugar sauce.

In Wisconsin, yeah, Pabst, seriously. It's one of the oldest original beers being brewed in Wisconsin, and it's good beer.
Good beer? lol

I drank Grolsch and Heineken before settling on Guinness Draught.
