Spécial Spiced Corsican Côte de Bœuf

A real Barbi ‘pièce de résistance’ this classic French dish was actually inspired by my favourite haunt – Corsica. The juicy, spicy meat topped with fragrant Herbs de Maquis is a perfect reminder of a beautiful, unspoilt Island – best with a glass of Nielluccio!

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

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…

Most extreme BBQ ever

Adrenalin junkies would find this a hard to beat Barbi feat. Held on Lake Walapoa in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2017 a bungee jumper plunged down to grab a burger that was being grilled on a Barbi floating on a raft 250ft below. Believe it or not he managed to not only take, but eat most of the burger, although he did suffer from acute indigestion as a result!
