You have to cook these beans low and slow, with lots of extra bacon.  Put them together first and let them sit in the low oven all day.  You won’t be disappointed.

 

The Meat and the Grill

Hopefully, you started yesterday and marinated your ribs.  That is one of the secrets to fantastic grilled meats.  If you like to add chicken as well, go for it.  The more meat the better!   The marinade adds that special ” I really care about this meal” seasoning to your meal, which is what you really want.

BBQ Sausages

After the ribs and chicken are off the grill and painted with your favorite BBQ sauce, it’s time to add the sausages to the low heat.  They won’t take more than hour to begin to plump up and leak juice juice.  You know that is the time you paint them as well and put them in a low oven with the ribs, awaiting the time “time to eat” dinner bell.

Don’t Forget The Sweet

A few hours after you have thoroughly stuffed yourself with all the delicious food, you and your guests WILL a craving for something sweet.  Take some time to be prepared for that, or maybe your wife or mother is more the baker.  Either way, make sure to have some dessert.

 

Ultimate Double Chocolate Brownies

The brownies don’t have to be pretty,  just really tasty.  Make sure you have a gallon or so of vanilla ice cream to go along with.  If you have an ice cream churn, it’s great to make your own as well.

The Classic Apple Pie

Classic Apple Pie

The home made ice cream will go great on this apple pie as well.  It only takes a little while to prep and bake.  You can cheat and buy the pie crust already made.  Hell…you can cheat even more and buy the filling too.  Either way you do it, it’s a great way to wrap up the meal.

Hope this helps you all have a great Memorial Day cook out!
