If you do not have time to have a backyard barbeque, every so often, you got to promise too. Daddy Brad: Yeah. Just look at the basic ingredients, the good backyard barbeque. Daddy Clay: Now to me, a good cook out is not too kid centric, like you want to watch them being really cute in playing while you enjoy an adult beverage. Say, you want to give them something to distract them, Place Gate is great, it rocks, they have so much fun but it is pretty familiar. So, you might want to spice things up a little bit. Give them a little twist, maybe just the sprinklers, it is just good enough. A gift, for my sister in law. Awesome. You go through this cool inflatable from One Step Ahead. You are done. Daddy Brad: The classics just work. Burgers, dogs, sausage, maybe some chicken, maybe a shrimp. Do not get too fancy, you know wasabe and custard infused ham sandwich with hard to choke heart puree, you do not need them man, you do not need to go overboard. Do the basics, burgers, dogs, buns, fun. Daddy Clay: So what goes on the cooler? Well, of course you got cheer up. What you got to do with some boxes here I am sure? What you really want is plenty of beer and wine. I know a lot of people feel a little bit uncomfortable drinking around the kids. You are not invited so please stay the hell home. Me? I want to make sure I have plenty of beer, not too fancy basic but I do like to have a light, also dark. I love these cases right now there is a sunny Casco the modelo its got both the dark style and the light, perfect for me and then of course plenty of the Good Ole American standby for Daddy Brad. Lots of it, in case, two cases. You can get loaded. Also, I like to keep that one in there for the ladies. Cheap Australian, fine for me, leader in a half, this one I prefer that way I am not putting corks the whole time. And you know what? I am going to tell you, I am not afraid of the pink. You can not scare me with this pink stuff. It is summer time. Drink is good, taste nice. You will be surprised. Lots of good pinks out there now and do not even think it, okay?
