When you throw a party, do you like to think of every detail? Do you look for different ways to help your guests have a good time? To help make a good party even better, consider changing up the food your serve. While the old standards of hot dogs and hamburgers are also delicious, do something that your guests might not do as often. Here are some dinner ideas that are sure to wow your guests.
Lobster bakes Kennebunkport ME take a bit of time to prepare but are worth it. Start by digging a pit in the ground and lining it with stones. Then, build a fire and allow the stones to heat up. Once the stones are hot, add layers of seaweed on top of them. After that, you layer the foods you’re going to eat. Once your food is laid out, you add another layer of seaweed that is then covered by a canvas tarp to help keep the warmth in. Your food cooks for about an hour and then is ready to enjoy.
When you’re ready to eat, gather chairs around the firepit and let guests use tongs to remove their foods of choice. Don’t forget to include the butter dipping sauce!
If you really want to impress your guests, do a pig roast. You create a pit of cinderblocks that is about 4 feet tall. Off to the side, create a fire that you will use the coals from to cook the pig. Spread the hot coals in the pit. On top of that, place a grate, so the seasoned pig can have something to lay on. Then, place a large piece of metal over everything to help keep the heat in. Be sure to add more coals often as the others begin to cool down.
This method takes about 6 to 8 hours, so make sure you plan ahead. When your pig is done, it will be soft enough to allow guests to grab the parts they want with a pair of tongs or oven-safe gloves.
