Tips

Is there any­thing bet­ter than en­joy­ing a good old fash­ioned Kiwi BBQ with friends and fam­ily? While we still love a great sausage on a bit of bread, the hum­ble bar­be­cue is now so much more than just slap­ping a piece of meat on a grill plate. In­ter­est­ing, fresh and zesty sal­ads are now a must, and we're in­creas­ingly hav­ing a lot more fun with mari­nades, ac­com­pa­ni­ments and dress­ings.

Of course, the num­ber one rule of bar­be­cue cook­ing is that it has to be sim­ple, sim­ple, sim­ple – but at the same time, it can be a lit­tle tricky to think of new ways with ke­babs and lamb chops! Thank­fully, we've cre­ated a per­fect menu of easy, al­fresco-friendly dishes – com­plete with a lit­tle twist – which are per­fect to take to the next fam­ily gath­er­ing or friend's party.

Our best tip for a stress-free gath­er­ing is to em­brace the very Kiwi tra­di­tion of bring­ing a plate! Shar­ing the load saves time and di­vides the re­spon­si­bil­ity of feed­ing the crowd. So, as­sign your mates a dish, make sure you've got enough ice on hand and crank up the tunes. Happy grilling ev­ery­one!
