It’s almost that time when you can start spending Saturdays over an open flame, surrounded by your friends or whomever your friends decide to bring with them. Whether you’re cooking a whole hog or just throwing some burgers on the grill, it seems like you are always surrounded by the same group of people.

1. The advisor


2. The one who brought the beer


3. The one who doesn’t drink beer


4. The Vegetarian


5. The DJ


6. The cold one


7. The day drinker


8. The “Is it Cool if I Smoke” one


9. The one with the dog


10. The new boyfriend/girlfriend


11. The next-door neighbor
