  • Thursday Tip-Off At Home Barbecue
    More info
    Our Thursday Tip-Off series is a weekly set of tips, suggestions, and tricks for making you a better-informed person. You're welcome. Spring is here and we've been smelling the sweet scent of BBQ more and more when we head out. Sure, we may be jumping the gun a little, but if we want to be ready for summer, it's important to plan ahead. Here, we take a look at what we're rounding up for the perfect BBQ with friends. Lead photo by Jordan Lyle The most important part of a barbecue is having an actual barbecue. Seems easy enough, but when you live in a city with minimal outdoor space, sometimes getting your hands on one can be harder than you might imagine. Enter: the homemade BBQ. While you won't be able to make dozens of burgers at the same time, it's a good hack for when you and a few friends are craving a couple burgers and hot dogs. If homemade isn't your thing and you're like, 'I would totally blow up my house,' then this portable camp stove is another great option. As seen in the picture, it can fit a couple burgers and hot dogs, which is perfect for a BBQ with only a few close friends. If you really, really just couldn't possibly spend time getting a grill, doing an at-home BBQ is still possible, as long as you have an oven. There are plenty of recipes out there on the world wide web that feature homemade BBQ sauce and an oven, but just be prepared to spend a lot of time cooking whatever meat you use.

This can be as easy as dragging out some extra blankets or a blow-up mattress (we love the below idea - quick and easy outdoor couch!). Permanent floor seating is also an option as well, as there are tons of floor pillows, poufs, and cushions out there that are perfect for extra company. If you'd like to throw some of them outside, grab an indoor/outdoor rug so you don't have to worry about them getting dirty on the ground. Setting up a few cushions in the vicinity of your BBQ (if you have one) is perfect for getting everyone together and talking. For a party that lasts into the night, string up some string lights! It'll help keep everyone outside longer, which is a must, especially if it's a nice night. Bonus: string lights tend to attract less huge, scary night bugs than a big outdoor light.
