Having a BBQ, need some side ideas....

I am having a bbq today for family. I tend to make the same things over and over, so I want some new ideas.

We are having:

Steaks

Hot Dogs

Hamburgers (anyone have any ideas for any yummy ways to flavor them?)

Baked Beans

My mom is bringing potato salad, so I don't have to make that.

Jello Cake


What else would be good? Any good recipes?

 A light pasta salad, some deviled eggs. With the burgers we add onions and worcestershire sauce as well as salt and pepper

 Do you BBQ your beans on the grill, if not they are awesome like that

No, I usually just use a crockpot.  I have always wanted a big smoker to where I could cook meat and allow the drippings to drip into the baked beans while they cooked.

For the burgers, do bacon, avacado and ranch dressing blended with sourcream as toppings.  Oh and swiss cheese!

Corn on the cob cooked on the grill, mix your butter with lime and cilantro!

That sounds like something I would definitely like....not sure about the kids though. :)

For the hamburgers, for every pound of meat, one packet of the dry ranch dressing mix mixed in... YUMMO tangy ranch burgers. 

Serve cornbread muffins with a can of drained whole kernel corn and some red pepper flakes mixed in with your cornbread mix. 

macaroni salad is my favorite... add frozen peas, shredded carrots, finely chopped onion, or green onions, and a finely diced red or orange bell pepper for some color, texture, and yummy flavor. Sprinkle some shredded cheese on the top... yummy!

Do you add mayo or a vinegar based dressing to your macaroni salad?
