I tend to make the same things every year and might try something new this Fourth. Ideas please? Thanks!

I go to a BBQ at a friends house every year, the core food is always the same, hamburgers, hot dogs but all of us that come bring a dish and it varies from year to year. I haven't figured out what to bring this year yet, need to figure that out as the day is fast approaching. We always have a great array of different dishes.
Will be looking for idea's also!!

Eating: A lot probably! (We have two weddings to go to on July 4th!)
Hope you have a good holiday.
We as well! No cooking, just eating lots of good wedding food!

On the grill - standard - hot dogs, burgers and sausage wraps. On the table (inside, in the AC as we are 100+ every afternoon now) Pickly potato salad, mustard mint and peas potato salad, whatever dip stuff others bring, a blueberry and raspberry tart (RW&B) and peach sheet pie (the genius one they just published) there HAS to be Ruffles and ranch dip! And a watermelon or three
and a lot of beer
Can I hop a flight and come??? Sounds wonderful.
Sadassa_Ulna - what are YOU making? Perhaps we could help mix it up for ya!

Haven't figured it all out yet. Always do some kind of cole slaw and potato salad, but not mayonnaisey, and not "ordinary" ;) Maybe blueberry pie for dessert.

Pork ribs. And I plan to have another go at Bubba Mac's "Giddy Swamp" sauce.
OK, folks I did it. Rubbed down some pork ribs with pimenton and salt, smoked California style over an oak fueled fire and finished with Bubba Mac's "Giddy Swamp". That was outrageously good. That sauce has to rank among the all time greatest Food52 recipes.
I am going for pickled vegetable slaw, baked curry lentils, grilled corn, grilled chicken tandoori, cherry slab pie (going cherry picking tomorrow), and blue berry cheese cake popsicles
Sounds delicious, I want all of that!
Thank you everyone for posting! Fourth of July is my husband's favorite holiday and we always host a gathering. I try to serve up a classic American Fourth menu, which to me means burgers and dogs on the grill (I add grilled chicken)and potato salad, cole slaw, watermelon. I usually make a simple tossed green salad and sometimes my husband makes baked beans. People bring yummy stuff like salads and brownies.
Sounds like the perfect Fourth of July menu! I have to hold the bun (lower carbs/ low glycemic) but drool at the burger. You might try changing up the seasonings like I do in my Miso Beef Burger with Daikon Oroshi or just do different toppings.
Lots of great ideas on food52! Bubba Mac's Giddy Swamp Sauce is Hot, HOT.
NOTHING!! :-( in the middle of a kitchen re do, so no cooking at all! feel like I had some part of me amputated for a fortnight..
