How do you barbecue?

Cooking up a storm…


Pork shoulders, beef brisket or fatty fish like salmon and mackerel are all ideal for smoking as their fat molecules really take on that delicious smoky flavour. Choose a good quality smoking wood and add it to your lit coals, it will really enhance the flavour of your cooking!


This is a high heat method that is used to cook small and thin pieces of food quickly. We recommend steaks, chops, chicken breasts, breads and vegetables when cooking on direct heat. Don’t forget to use a high quality cooking oil to ensure your food doesn’t stick to the grill.

Indirect Grilling

Indirect grilling is easy! Simply place your food next to the fire and close the grill lid, this holds in the heat and turns your grill into an ‘outdoor oven’ making it ideal for cooking larger foods such as whole chickens, beef briskets or ribs.

Happy grilling!
