potato salad with a heap ton of dill! Ina Garten has probably one of the best recipes for it – I like my BBQ super spicy with that tinge of sweet and potato salad is the best accompaniment!

My favorite side dish for BBQ is baked mac n cheese. I use the smitten kitchen/martha stewart recipe and absolutely LOVE It.

I would love to receive this! I’ve been getting really into BBQ sauce lately. I made an amazing one the other day with black cardamom and harissa for extra smokiness/middle eastern flavors. So much fun and it reminds me of summer ( i just hope the weather gets the hint)

I can’t get enough fresh roasted corn. I lay the husked cobs right on the hot grill until they get nicely toasted on all sides, then I cut the kernels off the cobs, add butter, salt and pepper.

Is it fair to say ALL OF THE SIDES!? I’m not trying to avoid picking just one but for me BBQ is a fill your plate to the brim, loosen the belt, type of endeavor. Mac ‘n’ cheese, baked beans, cornbread, coleslaw, greens! Greens! A mash potato situation isn’t out of the question either.

I also love potato salad but only one kind, which is the kind my family makes. The only place that makes potato salad anywhere close to what I grew up with is Canter’s and I make it a point to order it every time I’m there.

Gun to my head: mac ‘n’ cheese, no matter how incomplete that feels :-)

From NC, so I gotta say coleslaw. In fact, it goes ON my BBQ sandwich. Other sides are great, especially hushpuppies and mac n cheese, but it’s coleslaw that makes a meal of BBQ complete.

Reply

Simone April 2, 2014 at 4:56 pm

Wait, I love all the sides just as much as everyone else. But my favorite BBQ staple is just a plain old slice of soft, white bread. This is how it’s done when you mean business, for real.

Kasey April 2, 2014 at 7:20 pm

Gotta be coleslaw! But it needs to be light on the sauce; it makes me feel like I’m eating something kinda healthy to balance out all the carbs and meat :)
