Hard to believe summer is almost over. Our buddy, Barb Kiebel from Creative Culinary created these recipes for one of the best summer barbecue menus you will have this summer. You can make everything here ahead of time except a quick grilling of the ribs. You can do that while your sipping that Texas Bourbon Punch while chatting with your guests.

We’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about Barb’s new monthly series called Progressive Eats. A few of her blogging friends will join in and each month, one featured foodie blogger, the hostess, will create the recipe for the main dish while everyone creates the side dishes, appetizers and dessert for the post. It will be the last Tuesday of every month, so be sure to follow Barb (@creativculinary) for announcements and put it on your blog calender!
