Menu: Memorial Day BBQ Potluck (two options)

Almost every item on these menus is or can be prepared in advance (denoted by #). Alternatives are suggested to help tailor the menus to your family's preferences. 

We have tried and regularly serve items marked with an asterisk (*).





For Menu One, start the slow cooker pork sirloin tip roast about six (6) hours before meal time; alternatively, I have cooked and shredded the pork the day before it is needed. If you prepare the BBQ Sauce in advance, reheat it just before serving. You could bake the casserole(s) the day before and reheat, or assemble them in the morning to bake thirty minutes before serving.
