Walking into a party and just running things can have several predictable outcomes, like girls whispering about how hot and confident you are, or girls whispering about why Charlie Sheen showed up to another one of their friend's Bat Mitzvahs. For a whole business started by a guy straight owning his friend's party: Chuck's Wagon BBQ
Run by a guy who got his BBQ start by brazenly tossing out the catered sauce at his friend's b-day and substituting it with his own homemade stuff, Chuck's is a fully-functional grab n' go spot boasting two smokers and two whole-pig cookers, all relying on a rotating stock of hickory, apple, and pecan wood to fuel a method he describes as "low and slow", also the best method for beating laser security systems if you're not in one of those movies where you can breakdance through them. Most meats are dry-rubbed 24 hours prior to cooking, including que-licious mains like 3-4 hour-smoked savory ribs (not sweet!) and juicy pulled pork from a whole-roasted pig injected with apple juice/vinegar, plus a beer brisket which's spared the rub in favor of a moist paste (Worcestershire/mustard/paprika) and smoked for 9-12 hours, or what Ricky Williams calls "the time in between practices". Fixins come via mayo-mashed red skin potatoes, southern-style baked mac 'n cheese, farmers-market-fresh greens (a mixer of collard and kale), mayo/vinegar-based shredded cabbage cole slaw, and an abnormally sweet cornbread dubbed "Honey Bees", whose mysterious vanishing will be solved when people see your bulging stomach
Desserts are all baked by a (probably) less party-ish pastry chef, and include an apple n' peach cobbler, a Godiva chocolate cake, and a banana pudding with cookies called "Chessmen", though it'd take way more than two and a half of those guys to run a party.
