The 50 Most Mouthwatering BBQ Recipes
Well, by my reckoning we’ve got about one more month before the weather starts to turn and Autumn raises its red and golden head. So, while there’s still time to sit outside without a jumper, why not invite over some friends, dust off that grill and make the most of these amazing BBQ recipes?
Burgers & Beef
People go to BBQ’s with certain expectations and burgers are one of them. Failing that, a big juicy steak makes a very satisfactory alternative. Omit both at your peril…

Isn’t it annoying when you finish grilling all your food and the charcoal still has loads of cooking time left in it? Feels like such a waste. Fear not! There’s always pud…

42 – Toasted Marshmallow Charred Bread and Banana Sticks with Chocolate Fondue – Martha Stewart
43 – Grilled Shortcake Skewers – betsylife
These recipes were too good to leave out but too abstract to fit in any of my other categories. ‘Lambypops’? Greatest name ever. Plus, that BBQ sauce sounds so easy and so delicious that it’s almost a crime not to make some for every BBQ…
45 – Grilled Leg of Lamb – not without salt
46 – Szechuan Lambypops with Cilantro Chimichurri – Food52
47 – Apple Cider BBQ Sauce – Amuse Your Bouche
I couldn’t do a list of BBQ recipes without including a few drinks. There’s something about eating outdoors that inspires a bit more creativity – plus it’s a great excuse to use more of those wonderful seasonal ingredients… This time, I’ve chosen a few of my own – didn’t want to leave ALL the work to the guys in the posts above!
48 – Strawberry Peach Iced Tea – Eat Drink Cook
49 – My Perfect Sangria – Eat Drink Cook
50 – Pimms
Now, I was going to include a recipe for My Perfect Pimms here but as luck would have it, the lovely people at Pimms have sent me a selection of Pimms Drinks to try so I thought I’d tell you about those instead (my Pimms recipe coming soon though!)
Pictured above is Pimms Summer Crush, which combines the frozen taste of Pimms with hints of strawberry and cucumber.
Or what about Pimms Cider Cup?
This is a wonderfully British combination of the crisp taste of English cider and the glorious flavours of Pimm’s. It wouldn’t be the same without a hint of strawberry and cucumber, so the makers of Pimm’s have kindly added that in too. There’s no need for chopping – it’s a union made in heaven.
