    I think you’re on to something with the kebobs…maybe have a “make your own kebob” bar?

    My mom recently had chicken kebabs grilled with green pepper, onion, and orange slices! Which I’d never seen (the oranges I mean), but it was really good!

    When I think BBQ I automatically think pork shoulder or beef brisket which you can serve as a sandwich. You could also do ribs!

    @Mrs. Spring: mushrooms

    My latest obsession is sweet potato fries made in the oven.  Just get a bag of frozen fries and whip up a batch of secret fry sauce.

    I love bringing fresh salsa to BBQ’s, especially with guacamole!

    Mine has grilled corn, tomatoes, red onion, jalapenos, black beans, garlic, lime juice, and cilantro! It is pretty yummy! Not to mention it holds up really well.

    Love the good ol shrimp cocktail! We had these at a friends wedding I helped with. She got the huge frozen bags and we made our own sauce (YUM). Not too expensive, actually. And everyone always seems to love it.

    @MsJeep23: I agree with brisket!

    You can do it in the oven and then finish it on the grill.

    The problem with a DIY kebob grill is then someone needs to man the grill the entire time.

    Something you can make and put out would be a lot easier for you as the host.

    To liven up your veggie platter you could do “kebobs” with a toothpick with amozzerella chunk, cherry tomato and a basil leaf, or artichoke heart, olive and fresh oregano leaf etc

    I also really like cucumber salads for BBQs. Cool and crisp and a lot of peeople like it.

    Here is a different variation of one Sichuan Cuc Salad.

    One cucumber, seeded but not peeled, chopped into 1/2-inch chunks. 
    One bunch cilantro, chopped. 
    3-5 cloves garlic, minced. 
    2-3 thai chilies (most other hot chillies will work, but the red ones are really beautiful in the salad). 
    Vegetable oil or mild olive oil. 
    Chili oil (optional).

    Here’s my fave BBQ salad.  I use my food processor to whip this one out in just a few minutes.

    peeled cucumber, sliced

    red onion coursely diced

    2 bell peppers, sliced into strips (I like red, orange or yellow, as they are sweeter than green)

    cilantro, chopped

    salt, to taste

    equal parts vegetable oil and apple cider vinegar for the dressing

    I love ‘orange kabobs’ – Chunks of salmon, chunks of peach and chunks of partially steamed yams (marinade the salmon in teriyaki and sesame seeds!)

    My Fiance is a very serious griller/smoker and goes on a forum called ‘thevirtualweber’ its chalk FULL of awesome recipes for grilling and smoking! My favorite is beer-in-the-butt chicken (look it up!) it’s a great party topic and it tastes awesome =D

    @murmur: Yes grilled fruit is fabulous

    You should try grilled pineapple with chipotle powder (or chili powder) and finish with a squirt of lime. So simple yet a fabulous side dish

    Pinepple brushed with maple syrup and grilled is a great dessert too.
