There is a school BBQ coming up, and DS would like to participate, hosted by M&M Meat Shops. I am comfotable with all food items except the buns, they are purchased from a local bakery that also makes a lot of desserts and uses nuts/peanuts in many products. I plan to attend the BBQ with DS. Should I just bring our own safe buns (Wonder or Dempsters)? Bring a safe burger? Or skip the whole thing?

Becky you need to do what you feel comfortable with. I know such events are important for our kids socially, there also is a balance between inclusion and safety. If you feel he can attend and be safe then go and have a great time.
If it was me I would most likely bring DS his own food so we keep to the rule of food from mom and dad only. BUT...I would see if there was some kind of treat , freezie, (sealed) bag of chips etc. that DS could share in with the other kids.
I would also try to bring the same food as what was being served at the BBQ, burger, hot dog etc. so DS would feel like he was included.
There is no right or wrong answer, just do what you are comfortable with and be sure to HAVE FUN. :thumbsup

If you feel comfortable with M&M burgers, I would suggest bringing your own bun. If you speak to those hosting the event in advance and remind the person who is manning the grill, it should be OK. The biggest worry would be contamination via the serving utensil.

Regarding M&M food specifically we have had great success with their allergy labeling. DS has eaten their baguettes, zucchini sticks and his favorite pizza is now from them, a tomato basil pizza. They very clearly mark ingredients and all top 'may contains'. I have never bought their burgers. If the package says their burgers are safe then I would bet they are...that is of course sealed and handled/contaminated.
What other products have been cooked on the grill would be my biggest concern.
