3 tips on hosting the best catered BBQ event in Dallas

Planning a successful Texan BBQ event is both a science and an art.

Sure, you’ll want to keep the logistics of your event top of mind in every decision you make. But the most-talked about BBQs have a certain “something” about them that can’t be accomplished with planning alone.

Luckily, our team at Triple G Catering knows a thing or two about throwing a BBQ the right way. So without further ado, here’s everything you need to know in order to throw a successful BBQ catering event in Dallas, Texas.

1. How many people will be attending?

The answer to this question will affect every aspect of your BBQ catering event, so it’s important to know this before you start planning anything else. It’ll impact your venue (if you don’t have one set already), your seating needs and seating arrangements, and the amount of food you’ll need to serve to keep your guests satisfied.

Of course, you don’t want to go overboard either. At the end of the day, everyone should enjoy the BBQ — and yes, that means the host too. Keep the amount of attendees at a manageable number to help ensure the big day goes smoothly.

2. What can your guests expect in terms of entertainment?

Nothing’s better than the company of other people. But even so, you’ll want to include a few activities for your guests to enjoy, especially if some of them don’t know the other guests or if children will be around.

Some popular options include horseshoes, lawn twister, jumbo Jenga, and corn hole. If you have a huge expanse of sidewalk available, you can even leave out cups of sidewalk chalk for the kids to go wild with.

3. What kind of food will you be having?

The amount of guests at your BBQ will determine the kind of food you’ll be able to offer them. For example, smaller events with a headcount of 30 or less will require much less food than a party of 100. Smaller groups give you the option of cooking your own food (if you so desire).

On the other hand, with a group of 50, 100, or more, you’ll want to think about more practical options to feed your guests. This is where a Dallas-based BBQ catering company comes in handy.

Hiring a company like Triple G Catering allows you to hand off this huge responsibility to people who specialize in this sort of thing, so you can focus on making sure your event runs smoothly.

For that final touch, consider surprising your guests with a tasty dessert to bring your BBQ event full circle. An ice cream sundae bar featuring gourmet toppings is both a practical and easy option that will please anyone at your cookout.
