Default Sandbar snacks

In years past it’s been lots of fishing and the sandbar was easy because it was mainly beers. Now there’s six (Brother and wives) of us with the two babies and we’re spending more and more time at the sandbar. We recently added a small Webber to line up and we’re on a 24’ center console. So far we’ve done scallops and chicken skewers with it. We’ve also found fruit and crackers and dip work well and we’ve mostly failed with charcuterie board as the meats get gross and
slimy. We’re looking to pick up our snack game for the sandbar so I was wondering what good ideas can come from the truth. Let me know what you guys have had success with, is creative but not to complex and easy to eat and clean up.

Seasoned shrimp in foil on the grill
flatbread pizzas on grill
Reheat pre made taco/fajita mix

i find its much faster and cleaner to fully cook or almost cook through stuff at home then reheat in foil on the boat.

For the kids, frozen gogurt and freeze pops. Pack them in gallon bags and wedge them between 2 yeti ice/arctic ice/similar. Small pair of stainless braid scissors works great for opening them. Can also freeze Capri suns and grapes. String cheese and single serve cheese bars are great.

Guac/salsa and tortilla chips is a regular staple for us. BLT sandwiches are also a popular favorite. The bacon doesn’t get slimy like a cold cut, and the toasted bread doesn’t get soggy from the tomato if you put mayo on the inside surfaces of both pieces of bread.

stick with the beer, sounds like you now have two servants to fetch them for you.

Publix chicken wings re-heated on the grill are AWESOME, actually better than when they were fresh.

Publix Subs, fried chicken, and any of their deli dips and potato salads.

Hummus and cheese dips with crackers.

If you must grill, something that doesn't drip much is better.

Costco party platters are great for boat eats!

M & M's !!!

I thought this was ordinary, but when we introduced it to my daughter's friends at college they called it crack, so maybe pretty good. Simple dip made with sour cream and Lipton's onion soup mix and Ruffles chips.

I don't have access to the recipe right now, but we made a dip that involved cream cheese with chipped beef torn up small mixed in. Pecans roasted in a mild jalapeno or red pepper and sugar mix on top, then whole thing heated--with buttery (Town House?)crackers. You might find the full recipe if you search chipped beef dip. It is fantastic. Look for tailgate ideas--same concept.

Costco has these chicken burritos that are frozen and the cook nice on the grill! We also do peanuts, hummus, and the spinach artichoke dip with the thin pretzels from costco. I think you mentioned kababs as well, those we make at home and then cook them on the boat.

Costco sells Mango strips in a bag. We LOVE them, especially cold on the boat.

Chicken salad on a croissant is a good meal. We do chunks of beef soaked in Montreal seasoning, soy and pineapple juice on the grill kebab style. if you want to be fancy skewer it up with peppers, onions and pineapple chunks. premade hoagies or sandwiches are always good too. I like to go light with a fruit salad or some watermelon.

For fishing trips, strawberry smuckers uncrustables. The crew will wreck a whole box or two offshore. They are also a favorite at the sandbar, super convenient and easy
