First you have to cook delicious food. For example, you should cook steak. Steak will go really well with salads. You can also cook up some corn and kebabs. You can also make tacos. You can make hot dogs and cheeseburgers. It’s all in the preparation, so make sure lots of the stuff is made before you start grilling.

Second of all, you should buy drinks that your family likes. You can get some today and also buy orange juice, Capri Sun, SunnyD, Kool-Aid and iced tea. Don’t forget the water!

Lastly, you should have fun games to play. Some games we like to play are Twister, tag, hide and seek, hopscotch, jump rope and Simon Says. Some of our favorite sports games are soccer, basketball, football, volleyball and kickball. The favorite thing our families likes to do is karaoke. Get the music ready, and as it gets darker, let the singing begin.

So those are a few tips and tricks to make the perfect family barbecue. Hopefully, you make the best barbecue you have ever had.
