5 Ways to Throw the Best Cook out

An article written by guest contributor, Brian Rees

Many people throw out parties once a month for various reasons to see their friends and relatives. Almost all people arrange at least one party every three months, whether it be a birthday party, feast, anniversary, etc. Many people are unsure how to run a great party in the home without spending too much money. Some have a misconception that parties can only be conducted in hotels or special halls. But, it is always better to conduct small parties in the home. There are few tips on how to arrange a good party and throw the best cookout for your guests.

Decorate the Home for the Cookout

Decorating the home for a party is the initial step. Focus on the theme of the party and try to hang up decorations reflecting it. Children’s birthdays and other celebrations can have rich colors for the decorations, whereas for adults, celebrations can be in lighter color decorations. Evening parties can be decorated with lighting, and daytime parties can focus on natural vegetation like flowers. The party area should be decided in advance before starting the decorations, as it will be the focal point of decorations.

Choose the Best Place for Cookout

Choosing the cookout location should be after careful consideration as it should serve the purpose of easy accessibility to other parts of the property, including the area dedicated for serving. The most obvious location is around the barbecue grill or outdoor kitchen, but other good places could be the decks of swimming pools or courtyardsas all of these can be used effectively with space, and guests can enjoy the evening.

Decide What to be Served

Perhaps most important, as ultimately the food will determine the satisfactory level of your guests. It is not always easy to fill everyone’s specific dietary needs; however, your best effort should always be given. List the total number of guests and try to know their preferences if possible. If you know vegetarians or vegans, try to pick up veggie friendly options to throw on the grill.

Arrange the area for the Cookout

When arranging the cookout area, the total number guests should be considered first. Set up the area with outdoor chairs and tables without making the area seem too crowded. Also, ensure enough supply of plates, bowls, forks, and knives. If required, separate areas can be arranged for children and adults. Also,music is a great way to create a welcoming ambiance for a cookout.The food should be properly arranged in a corner, to ensure free access for the guests.

Some Cooking Tips

When serving meat for a cookout, hamburgers and hot dogs are always safe choices. Both are popular and less expensive than other meats. No matter what you serve, it’s always important to remember to give your meat a good flavor.Also, arrange some side dishes for guests like potato salad, corn, coleslaw, and vegetables. Dessert can be anything from ice cream, cookies, pies, or cakes. Be sure to have plenty to drink! Water bottles, canned soda, and possibly alcohol, are great for the guests.

Galaxy Outdoor Preps November Debut for Enterprise Island

Bacon Boys Using Evo All American Grill
Evo Affinity 30G Flat Top BBQ Grill

Evo Affinity 30G Flat Top BBQ Grill

LAS VEGAS – The Enterprise Dining / Cooking / Bar manages to combine several things that are already great on their own: a cooking/grill /griddle space where the chef cooks your food right in front of you, a place to seat 6 of your friends or family (optional bar stools counter or bar height), with built-in storage space as well as a built-in umbrella sleeve, (optional 9 ft. tilt umbrella).

In the heart of the structure is the EVO With its circular flattop cooking surface. EVO lets users prepare virtually any cuisine from any angle. By cooking foods directly on the cook surface, chefs can sear, sauté, grill, toast and stir-fry.

Galaxy Outdoor officials say that “bringing people together around food is our passion. It’s also what inspired us to design and build the most versatile Island/Grill that lets people share the joy of cooking. The Enterprise having a round sitting bar, and the EVO with its circular flattop cooking surface, allows everyone to interact with the chef.”

The Evo Affinity 30G Cooktop was built to be the centerpiece of the design kitchen. With precise temperature control across dual gas burners and a highly capable cooking surface, the Affinity 30G is the perfect stage to entertain large or small parties. Owners can round up the neighbors and take the party outside to make breakfast, lunch or dinner, but most of all have fun with friends and family.

The new Enterprise Island comes in 36” high counter as well as 42” bar height. Included in the Package is the EVO Grill and S/S Double Doors. Options include Galaxy’s USA made counter or Bar height bar stools, Sunbrella 9’ tilt Umbrella, and LED counter and under bar lighting. It can be ordered totally finished or unfinished.

Officials at Galaxy plan to start delivery by the first of November 2016. Dealer displays will have as standard equipmentw; heels, gas/electric, LED lighting, and bar stools and umbrella. For Dealers Only, free shipping is offered for display units with dealer margins of 35% plus.

2016 Projected Home Improvement Projections

Alfresco Custom Outdoor Kitchen with Accessories

Alfresco Custom Outdoor Kitchen with Accessories

The extended easing of gains in residential improvement spending is expected to change course by early next year, according to the Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) released today by the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University. The LIRA projects that annual spending growth for home improvements will accelerate to 4.0 percent by the first quarter of 2016.

“A major driver of the anticipated growth in remodeling spending is the recent pick up in home sales activity,” says Chris Herbert, managing director of the Joint Center. “Recent homebuyers typically spend about a third more on home improvements than non-movers, even after controlling for any age or income differences, so increasing sales this year should translate to stronger improvement spending gains next year.”

“Other signals of strengthening remodeling activity include sustained growth in retail sales of home improvement products and ongoing gains in house prices across much of the country,” says Abbe Will, a research analyst in the Remodeling Futures Program at the Joint Center. “Rising home prices means rising home equity, which should encourage improvement spending by a growing number of owners.”

The Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity (LIRA) is designed to estimate national homeowner spending on improvements for the current quarter and subsequent three quarters. The indicator, measured as an annual rate-of-change of its components, provides a short-term outlook of homeowner remodeling activity and is intended to help identify future turning points in the business cycle of the home improvement industry.
