Here in Southern California, it's not a BBQ without Carne Asada. It cooks so quickly and is soo good!

Pizza on the grill is phenomenal.

@conanthelibrarian: mmm sounds good. Any particular recipe you like?

I think they sell it at trader joes ready to cook, but that's pretty lazy.

@portezbie: I live just outside L.A. So there are quite a few Carnicerias around. I usually buy it there as it is usually already marinated.

Carne Asada = thinly sliced beef. (some are marinated.)
Carnicerias = Mexican butcher/grocery shop.

Please correct me if I am wrong, I am from small town Iowa we do not have this stuff, I had to google, and wanted to share.

Chicken or beef marinated in Spiedie Sauce - http://allrecipes.com/recipe/new-york-spiedies/

Fantastic tangy flavor.

Grilled Beef Brisket. mouth watering

I also recommend Summer Beer if you are drinking alcohol.
Very simple...
1 (12 fluid ounce) can frozen pink lemonade concentrate, thawed
12 fluid ounces water
12 fluid ounces vodka
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle beer

@portezbie: How many people do you have coming? It can work really well if you have the guests bring side dishes and desserts while you get to spend all your time preparing the main course :)

@zuiquan: I completely agree - we just did that a couple of nights ago for the first time and WOW!

A shish kebab party is always a good idea. You can have a variety of veggies and meats so people can skewer only what they want. Meats and tofu you can marinate, veggies just baste.

I would go with some simple Brats, cook them in a tin pan of beer and onions on the grill, and once they plump up, throw them on the grilling surface to mark them up. Taste great, and a really cheap crowd pleaser!

I had a whole bunch of stuff I wanted to suggest... but then the 'cheap' and "grill-only' thing eliminated most of it. Involved using a charcoal smoker, pork shoulder "country style ribs", and about 4-5 hours of cooking time.

It's hard to go wrong with pork on the grill. Ribs, chops, brats, tenderloin... Just be careful not to overcook it and dry it out.

Last Sunday I picked up some boneless pork chops on sale for $4/lb at the supermarket. Seasoned them with some dry rub and grilled them until they were just done but still nice, tender and juicy. They were fantastic.

Actually made them last night. Came across the recipe about a year ago and have used them multiple times for group BBQs. They are always a hit.

I recommend, if you don't want it so spicy, to cut the cayenne pepper back to maybe 1/2 tsp.

make some great burgers by adding a awesome rub to the meat patty, then throw them in the freezer for a half hour before you cook them on the grill, this holds the flavor longer, and makes the burger taste better. my buddy gave me this tip a while back and we do it everytime we make burgers now.

slow cook a marinated pork loin. This takes hours. Make sure you have enough beer.
