    Basic instructions are to use a trivet (raised rack) to rest the meat on.
    Heat the BBQ on a high temp.
    Turn heat down (as per instructions to cut of meat, would be either a mediumish temp I think)
    Leave meat in until cooked.
    I use a meat thermometer and take the meat out when it beeps.

    If I was to serve that many people I would cook the day before for the meat. The veges I would get up super early and start them early as can always reheat everything when needed.

    Hi there, i think with one oven you either need to share cooked meats or employ the bbq and oven. Personally i would totally minimise any cooking on xmas day. Too stressful! If you are going to cater all of it you self, do all prep the day before. Traditional potato salad, rice salad, playter of prawns, oysters smoked salmon, cut leg ham etc, all plated up the night before. If you are going to cook on the day, limit it to easy things on the bbq and maybe one roast meat. You don't want to be stressing about cooking veges and switching things in the oven. I love hosting xmas! Have a great time!

    We always do a cold lunch so cook the meats the day before and serve with salads (potato, pasta and garden)

    I agree with everyone else. Prep as much the day before. Serve cold meats and salads. And perhaps one roast meat and some roast potatoes/vegetables if you think you must have something hot.
    Seafood is great cold.
    And given the season, summer desserts are great on Xmas day!

    Get everyone to bring a plate. Ask them to bring something specific - dessert, salad, bread etc etc It won't help the meat question but I will get there. For meat you can try one cold and bake one hot on the day. That way people have the option.

    I use our slow cooker to roast the ham or turkey on the day. It is so easy to do the prep (ie open the lid, put in the meat and press the button)in the morning when you are still energetic and have the time and then nothing else to do until it is time to slice and serve. Slow cooker is good too for cooking the pudding and cake.
