You can always go with the ‘I pulled this out of the freezer and needs cooked before it goes bad!

Yes. It's hard not to sound like a dick and expect more with free food. When I do burgers it's full on condiment bar, buttered buns, and made to order.

Ever had a untoasted McDonald's hamburger with just the patty and ketchup? I can't get drunk enough for that !

Offer to cook so the host can spend more time with his guests. I get asked to do the grilling at some of our family gatherings and I'm glad to do it. I don't show up with additional proteins unless asked, and then it's for everyone.

Enjoy the invitation. It's only food and one meal. I'd take the others advice and grab something to eat before arriving if you're worried about his cooking otherwise just wash it down with a couple beers and enjoy the day!

For that kind of informal cocktail party where food is going to be available for grazing, I will usually bring one of my signature dishes. Maybe a grilled bacon and smoked cheese tray, a chilled tenderloin with plum dipping sauce, or some smoked steelhead or salmon. Yes, it's partially showing off.... but some people just don't experience things like that on a regular basis. I package things like fish on planking boards, which also serve as a cutting and serving boards.

In my teens and twenties I was the guy who would show up at someone else's bbq party and be running the grill within 20 minutes regardless of if the host wanted me to. I even remember showing up at a friend's party with my 16" little joe and a bag of charcoal cause I hated how he grilled.

In my thirties i was more understanding of other's and tried to control myself better. Still took over cooking, but only when asked. I'll still show up with some ABTs or a rack of ribs.

I try to be understanding of other people's priorities. Some of my friends just dont care about good food, and that is ok. It's the ones that do care and never learn or get any better that really frustrate me
