    Definitely do something simple like the pulled pork sliders too. How about single bone baby back ribs?
    I didn't want to say this, but I'm totally +1 with ThEoRy on this. Kebabs are labor intensive. The baby back ribs idea is definitely good but takes a little time.

    I was thinking that you could do a tri-tip or sliced beef sandwich (topped with an herb mayo, salsa verde, chimichurri, barbecue type sauce, horseradish sauce or whatever) on a long baguette and then slice it into smaller pieces you don't have to make individual sandwiches. Also, if you happen to have a Mexican market that makes tortillas on site, get small tortillas or sopes, and make little tacos/sopes with chunks or slices of grilled, seasoned pork (like a marinated tenderloin or even slices of pork shoulder that are marinated and grilled) or seasoned, grilled chicken topped with fresh guacamole or salsa.

    Here is a nice side that can be made in bulk, for a reasonable amount of $, made it for father's day:
    Cream Roasted Corn
    Serves 12
    1 lb thick cut bacon, diced into ╝ö dice
    1 cup diced onions
    4 cloves fresh garlic
    8 ears fresh corn, kernels sliced off, reserving cobs
    salt to taste
    pepper to taste
    2 cup heavy cream
    2 tbls butter
    1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
    ╝ cup vegetable oil
    Procedure:
    1. Place corn kernels on a foil lined cookie sheet and season with salt and
    pepper and a drizzle of olive oil and roast for 10-15 minutes or until golden
    brown. Keep warm.
    2. Heat cream with corn cobs.
    3. In a heavy bottom pot, sautÚ bacon until browned add onions, sautÚ until
    soft and translucent, add in minced garlic and cook for 3 minutes.
    4. Add heated cream (remove cobs), and reduce by 1/3rd. Add roasted corn and
    cover and simmer for 6-8 minutes.
    5. Finish with butter, salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped parsley.

    How about cabbage slaw with a miso/soy/lime/ginger dressing with a touch of sesame oil cilantro and hint of Serrano ?

    Sticky rice or polenta cakes?

    Veggie kabobs?

    Roasted tomato cherry kabobs?

    Hummus/feta/kalamata olive plate with pita wedges

    Is sous vide ahead of time and finish on grill an option? Would make timing a non-issue for ribs, loins, etc.

    Little known fact about Chris; when he was younger his village was razed and pillaged by pygmys with tiny spears. Ever since then he's been emotionally scarred and is put into a rage at the mere mention of being shished.

    Bacon wrapped garganzola stuffed dates, grilled pineapple and teriyaki chicken skewers, and grilled flap meat with chimchurri.
