Stick with what you know this time because he asked you to cook for him and you want to feel confident in what you are serving.
Now, having said that... also throw on a naked fatty as an appetizer. Unwrap your favorite bulk sausage and toss it on the pit - let it go till it's 165 or so and slice. You can get fancy and stuff it and wrap it in bacon, but try one naked. Easy, no muss, no fuss, and sooooo good.
Congrats on being asked to cook for him.
