  • BBQ Diaries; Spatchcock Chicken image

    BBQ Diaries; Spatchcock Chicken

    The rich and spicy flavours of the BBQ chicken balance well with the smoky, creamy butternut mash, for a dish that’s full of flavour and summer vibes, and good for the soul.

    BBQ Diaries; Courgette Canoes with Halloumi

    This is a serious veggie BBQ showstopper that’s easy to prepare. The perfect side to a bring-and-share BBQ, or even the main event for a light BBQ lunch. The overall concept lends itself to a whole host of different fillings and toppings, but this is the combo I’ve gone for, which works beautifully. A drizzle of mayo and a garnish of fresh coriander to serve really finishes the dish perfectly. I must say the Greendale Sundried Tomato & Smoked Garlic Chutney is to die for and is the star of this dish.

  • No Smoke Without Fire Beef Skewers image

    No Smoke Without Fire Beef Skewers

    There’s a little bit of work involved with this recipe, though most of the time needed is for marinating the beef (allow at least 6 hours, and preferably 24 hours if you can). Rich in flavour, the end result is well worth the wait!

  • BBQ Hake Tacos with Fresh Peach Salsa image

    BBQ Hake Tacos with Fresh Peach Salsa

    Serve up these tasty skewers and let guests build their own perfect fish tacos! We’ve used hake here, but you can use any firm, white fish fillets.

  • BBQ Diaries; Over The Top BBQ Chilli  image

    BBQ Diaries; Over The Top BBQ Chilli

    Over-the-top cooking (OTT) is an amazing BBQ technique where you smoke and cook the meat above whatever sauce or veg you’re serving it with – this way, you collect all the amazing cooking juices and get that smokey BBQ flavour into everything. Everyone has their own twist on chilli, but I’ve used my own chilli recipe here; it’s rich but super mild, as I have young children who absolutely demolish this dish, but by all means prepare your preferred chilli sauce recipe, cooking it as you would normally, but without adding the meat or simmering (we’ll be doing that part on the BBQ).

  • BBQ Brie with Tomatoes and Basil Recipe image

    BBQ Brie with Tomatoes and Basil Recipe

    This indulgent but simple recipe is a great one for special occasions – it does use a whole wheel of brie, but the delicious end result is definitely worth it!

  • Barbecued Whole Brill with Garlic Butter image

    Barbecued Whole Brill with Garlic Butter

    Sometimes unfairly overlooked in favour of plaice or turbot, we think brill is – well, brill! With a sweet flavour and firm flesh, it’ll cook to perfection in minutes as soon as the BBQ is ready.

  • No Smoke Without Fire Pork & Nduja Burger image

    No Smoke Without Fire Pork & Nduja Burger

    This summertime spin on the old staple ‘burger in a bun’ uses Nduja (a spicy, soft and deeply savoury sausage from southern Italy) to add a delicious kick to classic Greendale pork mince. Makes 4 burgers.

  • No Smoke Without Fire: Nduja-Stuffed Trout image

    No Smoke Without Fire: Nduja-Stuffed Trout

    This is a great ‘hands-on’ sharing dish for a summer’s evening – it’s a really nice way to cook trout, as the fish takes on subtle smokiness from the charcoal, and the spicy, savoury nduja adds real depth of flavour, too. Serves 2-4.

  • Simple Barbecued Asparagus Recipe image

    Simple Barbecued Asparagus Recipe

    While British asparagus is still available, there’s no nicer way to enjoy it than grilled quickly over coals and finishing with a quick, simple dressing – the spears turn a beautiful bright green in the heat, and the charcoal imparts smoky flavour and sweetness to each stem. Delicious! Serves 4 as a side dish.

  • No Smoke without Fire: Chicken Shawarma image

    No Smoke without Fire: Chicken Shawarma

    Packed with spicy flavour, this succulent chicken shawarma is served with cooling minted yoghurt, a special beetroot and parsley salad and easy BBQ-friendly flatbreads.
