A barbecue can spice up your event: Grill 40-60 steaks or 30 chicken halves at once with a rental barbecue or rotisserie. Use sauces or glazes to enhance the flavor (generally added in the final stages of cooking) or marinades (generally added overnight/hours before cooking).

- Spray the grill with cooking spray to prevent sticking.
- Cover the firebox with a bed of gravel 1" deep to provide draft and even heat distribution.
- Use 1/3 of the grill for a cooling area.
- Cover the cooking area with hardwood briquettes for more uniform heat than lump charcoal.
