Cool Coriander & Ginger Lamb chops

Lamb works really well on the Barbi and new season best of all. This recipe is a variation on a dish picked up at a small roadhouse on the way out of Bondi, the slightly fusion edge enhances the overall flavour. Serve in an upright triangle, bones to the sky!

Today’s Brilliant BBQ Tip

Here’s a great Barbi Top Tip on how to be a Better BBQ’er...

BBQ Tip 7 – Follow Smoky Joe

Enhancing that true smoky BBQ taste is best done on charcoal by throwing wet wood chips, herb branches on the coals. Try different types of wood, apple is good or vine clippings. A similar, although not quite as good, a similar effect can be achieved on a gas grill with a lava rock bed. Or by placing an oven tray to the side of the gas diffuser bars, but remember to soak your wood chips, herb or vine branches

Top 20 BBQ Facts

Here are some brilliant Barbi tips to help you get the very best out of your BBQ and alfresco eating this summer!


Although BBQ & alfresco eating has now become a standard alternative summer meal format with nearly half the population now considering it as normal to BBQ or eat outside during the summer. However paradoxically and perhaps as a continuing hangover from the Lockdown, alfresco eating occasions are still perceived to be somewhat of an indulgence or treat, with 33% likening BBQ to a dinner party in terms of entertainment value!

Legends of the Grill?

Here are some of the most surprising and possibly (un)believable BBQ stories that we’ve come across over the years…

Largest-ever sing;e BBQ cook-off!

Following a bet, the largest ever single BBQ cook-off occurred in 1999 in Kansas City when 5 steers were roasted in a huge pit for nearly 2 days, with a 100 gallons of BBQ sauce, the subsequent grill-fest lasted for a further 3 days and fed over 175 hungry BBQ fans.
