Comments Off on Backyard Cookin’: 5 BBQ Recipes to Impress Guests

It’s coming up to that time of year again- backyard cooking time! It’s an opportunity to get together with family and friends and have a great time. The only excuse you need is the sun shining.

Did you know that Australia is the BBQ capital of the world, with almost two-thirds of all households owning a barbeque? With that in mind, it’s time to get prepping for those bbq parties. Here are some bbq recipes to try out next time you’re hosting.

1. Grilled BBQ Chicken

This is one of the best grill recipes because chicken is the most consumed meat in the world. So, the odds are that you’ll please most of your guests with this mouth-watering treat. The great news is, it couldn’t be easier to cook.

Marinade your chicken fillets in barbeque sauce the night before your event and take them out of the fridge when you’re ready to grill. Grill each fillet for ten minutes, flipping them over halfway through. Season to taste once cooked.

2. Chinese BBQ Pork

This is always a winner, at any time of year. You’ll need a good shoulder of pork which is often best bought from a butcher. You can make everything you need for the marinade at home with these ingredients.

You may want to add some red food coloring to give your pork some real flare. It’s not only delicious but it’s also not a recipe you’ll come across too often at your everyday bbq. If your guests are pork lovers, take a look at the frankfurts at

3. Grilled Mediterranean Vegetables

Whether you’ve got vegetarians in your midst or you’re just looking for a sumptuous side, these vegetables are always a hit. Vegetables like zucchini, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, red onions, and more can be grilled on your bbq. Just drizzle some olive oil over the veg and sprinkle salt on the top.

Add your veg to the bbq (or the oven if the bbq is reserved for meat) and cook until soft. It usually takes around twenty minutes in the oven.

4. Chicken and Pineapple Skewers

The timeless, classic taste of savory and sweet is encapsulated in cookout recipes like this. It’s also a gluten-free option for your guests should you need one and it’s packed with protein. Chop chicken fillets into cubes and do the same with fresh pineapple.

Add chicken and then pineapple to each skewer, repeating the process until each skewer is full. Add your skewers to the grill and let the sweet aromas fill the air.

5. Corn on the Cob

Corn on the cob is a great go-to when you want to fill your guest’s plates. Melt some butter over the corn and rub some salt into each one. Add the corn to the grill for ten minutes, turning repeatedly until the corn is soft.
