Easy Entertaining: Lynda Reeves’ Perfect BBQ

My favorite BBQ is a backyard affair featuring classic margaritas and guacamole, baby back ribs — smoked and then charred to perfection — Cuban corn, chef Lora’s amazing potato salad (or char-roasted baby potatoes) and a summer salad like watermelon and feta with fresh mint.

For dessert, I’ve been serving Häagen-Dazs Salted Caramel Gelato that is amazing with thin biscuits. I like Jules Destrooper Butter Crisps and Almond Thins. Or sometimes I make a classic NY cheesecake and top it with fresh raspberries. Craig Claiborne’s Classic Cheesecake recipe from the New York Times is one of my favorites. Read on for my best BBQ recipes and tips.
