As a general rule, we have all those with a Christian name beginning with A-M
to bring a small salad or side dish to go with the main BBQ. Those with names
L-Z can bring a supper item such as cakes, biscuits, cheese, dips, chips, etc.
Everyone brings their own BBQ meat or substitute, but to get a nice sense of
