    That’s awesome! I originally wanted to do a bbq for my wedding but most venues wouldn’t allow it.

    Sounds awesome!  I would love that as long as you had patty options that weren’t red meat, (like turkey, or veggie burger).  You can up the ante with some fancy toppings like nice cheeses, grilled mushrooms, avocado, different spreads, etc.  I would love to go to a reception like that.

    In case you need ideas for toppings and sauces take a look at this menu.  It’s one of our favorite gourme burger places.

    I really love that idea! I think my Darling Husband would be soooo happy at a reception like that lol πŸ˜‰ But I, personally, would have it catered – just for stress/work load purposes πŸ™‚

    @littlepossum:  My thing is, is how would you cook it? Would you have different grills going so you wouldn’t have to deal with keeping track of “is this chicken? is this the medium beef or the well done?” Things like that. There would need to be alot of organization I think… Because people like their burgers cooked differently. My Fiance and my mom would be in love with you guys by the way because they would both rather eat a burger than anything else lol!!

    Sounds yummy to Me. 85 guests could be a long time standing at a BBQ but I don’t think it would be impossible to self cater.

    I think that is a great idea!

    Our wedding was quite formal but we served mini venison burgers as part of the entree and they were a hit!

    @Jenlon:  Less stress is always good.


    @littlepossum:  Darn you and thank you for posting this.  We are doing a BBQ reception for 70 and I am just starting to work out logistics. We should probably work together! 

    Suggestion #1 – cook the bacon and grilled onion the morning of and just keep handy.  Because they’re grilled and their flavor doesn’t come from being ‘fresh’, don’t even sweat it. 

    The meats though sound interesting. Have you thought about brining?  You’re like ‘huh’?  I totally thought the same thing, like I was pickling.  Basically anything that you’re going to put directly on flame, outside of burger meat, can be ‘injected’ with water, salt, sugar, spices/herbs for 6+ hours and it ends up being super moist and flavorful when you grill.  You don’t have to inject though, you just boil the ingredients of your brine for 15 minutes, let the solution cool, and then place your meats in it covered for at least 4 hours.  It really does make a difference.

    What are you doing for sides? Flat and drinkware?

    Good idea as long as you cater for those who eat no red meat, or no meat at all πŸ™‚
