BBQs are the perfect summer treat, with an array of foods and recipes to reheat over the coals. With soaring temperatures and the UK recording the hottest day of the year this week, it may be the perfect time to head out to the garden for a barbecue.
Traditionally, burgers, chicken and ribs are barbecued, with a range of recipes to choose from.
Pairing meat – or vegetarian options like tofu for a range of diets – with salad, coleslaw, and bread makes the perfect alfresco meal.
With the dying embers of the barbecue, you can try sautéing marshmallows on skewers and toasting them for a sweet treat.
