TIPS FOR THE PERFECT SUMMER BBQ

Published on 20 February 2019

Summer is well and truly here and that means one thing, barbeque season! Read on to find out our top five essentials for throwing the perfect summertime BBQ, every time.

Get your grill on

As much as we all love summer, it does something mean unpredictable weather, so why not make life easier with a George Foreman Indoor/Outdoor BBQ Grill? It allows you the option of cooking in the backyard or in the kitchen with its indoor/outdoor feature. This way you’ll be able to cook up a healthy feast for everyone, no matter what the weather throws at you.


What’s the main?

Now, what’s a BBQ without meat? Or grilled Portobello mushrooms and halloumi for the vegetarians in the household? Some other suggestions include grilled pork chops or Indian spiced beef kebabs that are sure to be a crowd favourite. You can find some more recipe ideas on our Recipe tab here.


Don’t forget the sides!

A delicious selection of nutritious sides is a BBQ essential. You simply can’t go wrong with grilled vegetables and a fresh garden salad. You know what also compliments barbecued food? Grilled corn on the cob. Yum!


What are you drinking?

This summer set the alcohol aside for a healthier alternative.  Some of our favourite non-alcoholic drinks include kombucha, fruit-infused water or freshly squeezed watermelon and lime juice to cool you down on a scorching hot day.

 

Now for the best part… dessert!

It’s no lie that everyone’s favourite part of a meal is dessert. Our healthy tip? Freeze slices of watermelon on paddle pop sticks for a clever alternative to icy poles. Or how about grilling peaches before topping with spiced walnut-yoghurt sauce for a sweet treat to end the night?

 
 Happy BBQing!
