How To Plan A Summer BBQ

Plan The Menu

The most important part of planning a summer BBQ is planning the menu! Pork, chicken, beef? All three? Be sure to think of everything ahead of time. Even make a mock restaurant menu to keep things organized – main courses, sides, drinks, desserts, etc.

If you’re looking to add some fair flavor to your menu, Geyer Rental has a great variety of different snack and fair foods to try, like nachos, a hot dog rotisserie, cotton candy machines, slushy machines, Sno-Kone machines and more!


Maybe you have a grill, maybe you don’t. But do you have a grill big enough to feed the horde which will soon descend upon your summer BBQ? Get a handle on the whole affair by renting a SIX-FOOT grill from Geyer Rental! We have charcoal or gas grills for you preference. We even have a whole hog pig roaster if you’re into that kind of thing.

If you’re serving any sort of fries, don’t forget to get an electric or propane fryer as well!


Where are you guests going to eat? On the ground, or inside your home? Having a number of tables and chairs available can make things a lot easier.

At Geyer Rental, you can pick up (or we can drop off) rectangular or circular tables with chairs for your summer BBQ! We can even supply cocktail tables, or umbrella tables if you’re guests are looking for something higher class!

What if it rains? Don’t forget about a tent! We have a number of tent sizes and styles to choose from for your summer BBQ.


For a ton of fun, rent an inflatable or backyard game from Geyer Rental! Your guests will be busy playing all night.

Besides rentals like bouncy castles, sumo, volleyball, a dunk tank, and more, you can also pull out your favorite board games and place them around for playing.

For the perfect summer BBQ, don’t forget the music! We have speakers, mics, mixing boards, projectors, dance floors and anything else you could need to keep the party bumping!
