Hit up your local butcher and see if they can provide you with a pig on the spit. Nothing impresses your mates more than a whole animal with the head on still. If this isn’t an option make sure you at least get a nice piece to roast, some quality sausages and steaks. Go meat again for snacks, try some homemade beef jerky or if you do have some vegetarians coming give them some high protein vegetarian options.
