Let the barbecued meats be the star of the show
All of the meat I used came from my ButcherBox order. The partnership they have with Kingsford Charcoal makes entertaining for game day stress-free. Being able to shop online for the quality cuts of meat, have them shipped free in a cooler-style box, vacuum-sealed and frozen is half of the work done for me.
Set your table foundation
You can easily set the table foundation using a fabric or butcher paper table runner. If you use butcher paper, you could write the names of the meats where you place them to make it easy for guests to pick what they want. For game day, you could add goal post to both ends of the grazing table.
Choose your serving ware
For a grazing table, I like using platters, cutting boards, finger bowls and cake stands in various sizes. You can make this super matchy or bring in a variety of color. The colors can represent a holiday or honor your favorite football team.
Cut your barbecued meats and make them easy to pick up
Cutting meats ahead of time will prevent your serving line from getting congested. Also, with a grazing table, there's usually not a lot of space for folks to set their plates while they cut stuff, so get that out of the way ahead of time.
Make it pretty
I use flowers, fruit, cheese, chocolate, nuts and other knick knacks to anchor the meat so it doesn't just look like a meat buffet.
