If you are planning on throwing a birthday party, or maybe even a celebration party of some kind then you may find it hard to figure out what catering options to provide. There are so many options to choose from, and with each one having their own benefits you may really struggle to find one to suit your needs. Barbecues are one of the most versatile and easy options for literally any event as they can cater for so many different people with differing diets and food allergies. This article will outline some of the reasons why you should hire BBQ equipment for your next event.
Unlike many other catering options which involve precise planning and strict manufacturing for certain allergies, barbecues are easy to set up, organise and manage. By hiring a few gas barbecues you can easily provide enough food for everyone as well as catering for those who have special dietary requirements. If you find that guests are coming that cannot eat fish, it is so simple and easy to grill them something they can eat, whereas conventional catering options would not allow for this at such short notice.
Many conventional catering options don’t usually involve the guests, so if you are planning on hiring catering equipment yourself, you could be left out in the kitchen missing out on a great party. One of the benefits of hiring BBQ equipment is that you can still be around your friends and family, whilst providing food for them all to eat. This way you can still be involved in the party, even when you are cooking.
It is generally a lot cheaper to hire out a BBQ and buy your own food than it would be to provide everyone with a pre-cooked meal. Even if you choose to have the food brought in by the caterer, it still works out quite a lot cheaper to have a BBQ than providing your guests with a sit down dinner.
Easier for guests
Everybody has their own limits when it comes to food, and more often than not, people feel obliged to eat things that they don’t necessary like because it has been placed in front of them. With a BBQ, everyone can eat at their own pace, and eat as much or as little as they like and won’t feel pressured into eating something they hate. It will actually save you money in the long run as you will throw away a lot less with a BBQ than you would with a conventional meal.
Easier to clean up
Formal dinners usually require lots of plates and cutlery as well as glasses and bowls. Barbeques on the other hand, cut out the need for so many plates and dishes, meaning that washing up will be an easy task for the host of the party. Paper plates and cups can also be used eliminating the need to wash up at the end of the night.
BBQ’s are not only easier and cheaper than you may think, they are actually a lot more fun than a conventional catering option as they allow social interaction and involvement in the cooking process.
