I'm having a potluck BBQ for my birthday?!

Question: I'm having a potluck BBQ for my birthday!?
Every year I put on a huge themed party for my birthday and this year I want to do and spend as little as possible!. So I've decided to have a potluck dinner at a friend's house!.

What should I bring to the table!?!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

well you being the host should supply the main dish and drinks!. so maybe a big sub sandwich or sloppy joes, taco/nacho bar, chicken wings- anything with meat for your main dish!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Pick up some 31/40 cooked & peeled shrimp at a store!. Rinse them at your friend's house!. Add some store bought cocktail sauce and a sliced up lemon!. 31/40 refers to the number of shrimp per pound!. I buy the two pound bags of frozen shrimp and speed thaw them!. Add a few sliced lemons and garnish the platter!. See if the butcher will give you a little seafood seasoning to sprinkle on top!. The frozen bags are cheaper than over the counter in the butcher/fish area!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Smoked rice
2 cups uncooked Riceland Gold Perfected Rice

I would bring my own cake!. That way, it looks and tastes EXACTLY how I wanted it too! :) and maybe what ever i wanted bbqed, like chicken, or steak!.!.!.but not too much, just like a package or so!. and any special drink I wanted too, I'd bring!. Like If I wanted margarritas, i'd bring 1 bottle of tequilla, 1 bottle of mix, and 1 bag of ice!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The host usually supplies the main dish and drinks!. If it's a BBQ, just bring an assortment of gourmet sausages, hamburgers and whole portobello mushrooms (for vegetarians) to BBQ and serve on buns, with condiments!.!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
