Barbeque Side Dishes Can Be Crowd-Pleasers Too

Let's talk a little about your barbeque side dishes. Are they an afterthought to the meal? If it's the meat everyone's craving, why worry about the side dishes? Nobody's gonna remember them anyway.

Well, when you barbecue, you put a lot into it. It's a slow process that requires quite a bit of preparation and thought. And overall it's a lot of work.

Your side dishes require that same amount of preparation and thought. They're supposed to be a compliment to that awesome piece of meat you've cooked. And done right, the side dishes will become a big part of that overall bbq experience.

I'm sure you've been to cookouts where the food was pretty good, or nothing was really bad tasting, but it wasn't great either. You could tell if the preparation and the love of cooking was there or not.

Put in the same extra effort for your barbeque side dishes as the rest of the meal, and you'll acquire a reputation as someone who knows what they're doing over the whole bbq experience. The quality of the side dishes will make all your bbq look and taste good.
