Although it’s been warm enough in Seattle to use the grill now for the past several weeks, I always think of Memorial Day Weekend as the “opening day” of the BBQ/grilling season. Even if the weather isn’t cooperating, it’s still fun to have a few people over for some lip-smacking BBQ, beer and fun around our outdoor fireplace. 

I’m starting to get an idea of what I might cook, but before I post recipes I’m curious about what you need help making for your celebration. What kinds of recipes can this site post to make your party great?
