With barbecue season fast coming round the corner – those winter days will melt away soon!! – I thought it would be a nice way to finish up Barbecue Week with a Barbecue Recipe Roundup. Forget the same ol’ marinades and stodgy potato salads that turn up at every family barbecue, why not try these ideas for some inspiration?

Pomegranate Iced Tea


If you’re in charge of bringing the drinks to the party, why not take a bit of time to make this pretty in pink and refreshing Pomegranate Iced Tea! And if you want to make it more adult-friendly, you can always add in a splash of your favourite spirit. Find the recipe for this bright punch, here.

Spruce up that same ol’ potato salad by making it German! This recipe uses bacon, vinegar and mustard to add a tangy kick to a great classic. Find the recipe for a German potato salad here.

Vegetarians rejoice! Though barbecues are often filled with meats of every form, these bulgur veggie burger patties are so hearty, it’s sure to have the carnivores wanting a taste too! Recipe here.

Chinese Barbecue Pork

Add some variation to your barbecue with some Chinese Barbecue Pork! Commonly seen in the glass windows of Chinese restaurants, these are so easy to make, and can even be done in the oven if you don’t feel like breaking out the barbecue! Find this super easy recipe here.

Peach and Prosciutto Salad

Okay, so it might not quite be summer yet, but the peach in this summery salad can be easily replaced with any sweet, juicy fruit! Find the recipe for this luscious salad, here.

Barbecue Sauce

It ain’t a barbecue without some SAUCE! Most barbecue sauces start with a ketchup base and adds a sweetener and other flavours, and this one uses the sweetness of coca-cola, and the heat of sriracha to give it a spicy kick! Find the recipe for this barbecue sauce here.

Kalbi Baby Back Ribs

Ribs are a constant favourite at barbecues – anything cooked on the bone has that lovely flavour, and it’s got a built in handle to boot! This one uses a classic Korean soy-based marinade, that retains the classic sweetness in a barbecue, but adds a moreish umami flavour with the soy, garlic, and rice vinegar. Find the recipe for these Kalbi Baby Back Ribs here!

Beer Brined Chicken Wings

Wings, brined in beer and dusted with spices, perfect for the barbecue.

And finally, you can’t have a barbecue without some chicken wings! I love making these beer brined chicken wings in the oven, but they would also be great with a honey glaze on the barbecue. Find the recipe for these brined wings, here.

If you feel inspired to hold your own barbecue, why not sign up for the Big Aussie Barbie to take part in International Prostate Cancer Awareness Month this September?
