BBQ Recipes and Tips

Posted by LGE Editor

With all the lovely warm weather the BBQs have been out and we have some great BBQ recipes and top tips to give your BBQ meat, fish and veg a little extra oomph this summer. Be adventurous and add some herbs to the coals and really add some flavours to your BBQ recipes.

BBQ Tip: Ensure if using coals your BBQ are lit and burn until they are grey/white and there is a strong heat coming from them before you start cooking your food, at this point if required add in a choice of herbs and or seasoning onto the coals.

Mild to Very Hot Flavouring your Coals –

Herbs for the BBQ Recipes

Add some extra flavour to the coals, add some of your favourite herbs 5 minutes before you start cooking your meats, you can also buy some flavoured woods and coals that will go in your BBQ. Please note some types of wood, if treated can be poisonous and some herbs can turn meat inedible. Also check first before you cook on the BBQ.

Ideas for Cooking on the BBQ

BBQ Skewers on the Grill

  • Mini corn on the cobs
  • Fish kebabs in piri piri sauce
  • When cooking flatbreads and pitta, cook on top of foil and just when you are ready to serve the food.
  • Cooking fish in foil with a drizzle of flavoured olive oil and squeeze some fresh lime juice over (add some chilli )
  •  Adding cheese to the burger, place burger on top of tin foil and add the cheese, (saves all cheese falling into BBQ)
  • Add some beer to the flames before you start cooking
  • On gas BBQ spray with a flavoured oil
