In choosing the perfect items for your party, Couch Potatoes offers these classic American styles and side dishes.  You’ll also want appetizers-please look at the Dinner Party Menu for these ideas, as well as other items you might enjoy.

Carolina Pit

BBQ may well be America’s first national cuisine.  Every region has its own style. And every region is the best-just ask someone from there!  In some joints, the sauce is part of the experience.  In other joints, ask for sauce and they’ll ask you leave.  Meat might be cooked low and slow over indirect heat for almost a day.  Other styles cook the meat just inches from the coals.
