Barbecue recipes

Sun’s out, barbecues out. Get it out, dust it down, polish it up and make the most of your BBQ this summer with our best barbecue recipes. We’ve got 100+ ideas including icons of the grill like beef burgers, slow-cooked pork belly, chicken wings and ribs.

Fancy something different? We have plenty alternative recipes such as whole baked cheese and fruit parcels. In fact, we’ve dedicated an entire section to alternative barbecue ideas. Plant-based barbecue recipes include spiced aubergine shawarma and vegan hot dogs.

Kebabs and skewers work really well on the barbecue too, and see our 12 best sides to go with it all. Happy grilling!
