@ColoradoGirl:  Sounds like enough food to me!  Assuming you have enough quantity-wise for all of your guests

I would maybe add baked beans in case someone doesn’t like potato/pasta salad… that gives them another true side option besides a leafy salad and a fruit/veggie tray.  It all sounds great to me, though!

I think that’s lots of variety, as long as there is enough quantity! You could do a selection of bar desserts (cookies, brownies etc) instead of pie as they are prob cheaper to make and less messy? Maybe cookies with your initials on them or something?

I think it all sounds good unless you have any guests who won’t eat the meat in which case there isn’t too much left for a vegetarian (though obviously they wouldn’t starve)

ETA: whoops just saw that was already brought up.  if it’s just one person I’m sure they’d be fine with the side dishes and dessert.

Sounds perfect! If I were you I would select potatoe salad though, you can easily make this one or two days before – I always find that pasta salads doesn’t do as well.

I don’t think it’s enough variety– really you only have one main course, the brisket. I’d add a few whole smoked chickens, or maybe some link sausage, since those are easy to do and not terribly expensive, and round out the sides a bit more so that there’s more variety and enough substance for any vegetarians or those who prefer a little less meaty of a meal. Tortellini salad would work really well.

Definitely enough options as long as there is enough of everything for everyone

@ColoradoGirl:  Oh that is definitely enough! Especially because its sort of an afternoon BBQ affair. It sounds delicious and more than enough! Don’t fret
