Best Themes for Summer BBQ Parties

Ajay Mittal

Let’s face it, summer BBQ Season is still coming. While summer may feel a bit different this year with COVID-19 disrupting large gatherings and big events, BBQs will still be taking place across backyards in the Philadelphia and Main Line areas.

Here are some fun themes to consider for your backyard BBQs:

Country Rodeo BBQ Party Theme

Yeehaw! What could be more festive in the summertime than a country rodeo theme BBQ party complete with country-western music and cowboy decor? Dressing up in Stetson hats and cowboy boots are optional, but certainly adds to the fun. And if you’re feeling super entertaining, rent a Mechanical Bull! If you’re not into all of that, let the food be the (lone)star of the celebration. Our Country Rodeo BBQ menu will keep everybody happy:

  • 18 Hour Smoked Brisket
  • Fresh boneless chicken breasts
  • Black Angus Burgers (or Vegan burgers for plant-based eaters)
  • Molasses baked beans
  • American Potato Salad
  • Sliced Watermelon

Philly’s Best BBQ Theme Party

How about something more reminiscent of home? Philly is the birthplace of America after all, and we know how to throwdown like the best of them. Besides the usual red, white, and blue, decorate with mini Liberty bells, blast some Will Smith, and invite Ben Franklin to show up. Forget the cheesesteaks and hoagies, here’s what will make a Philly BBQ party pop off:

  • St Louis Style Ribs
  • Picnic Fried Chicken
  • Hamburgers
  • German Potato Salad
  • Bow Tie Caprese Pasta Salad
  • Strawberry Quinoa Salad
  • Homemade Chips

Escape to the Islands Theme BBQ Party

Traveling to a tropical island might not be in the cards this year, so we’ll bring the islands to you! Break out the flower garlands, palm trees, and fruity cocktails for an island-themed BBQ party in your backyard. You’ll feel like you’ve escaped to the Caribbean with island-inspired fare such as:

  • Grilled Vegetable Salad with Orange Vinaigrette
  • Coconut Chicken Bites
  • Mahi Mahi with Pineapple Mango Salsa
  • Gingered Pulled Pork
  • Cuban Style Roasted Chickpeas
  • Grilled Peaches with Mascarpone & Honey
