Foods That Taste Better Cooked on a BBQ

A barbeque can be a versatile cooking tool if used properly. Do you love to entertain in the great outdoors? Are you looking for food that is both tasty and easy to make outside? If this sounds like you, here are some foods that taste better when cooked on a barbeque. Try some of them out and you might even surprise yourself!

Kebabs


Being married to an Arab, I learned to love Arabian food especially Kebab. It's my absolute fave! There are so many different kinds of kebabs you can make, as you can combine a variety of different meats and vegetables with your choice of sauce or marinade. Make it a collaborative affair and get your friends and family involved in the making of your barbequed kebabs. This will make your kebabs just that little bit tastier and will also give everyone a sense of accomplishment.

Pizza


Another absolute fave! There is nothing better than a homemade pizza! You can be inventive with your toppings combinations and use as many as you want, and you can also cater for any specific dietary requirements. You can make your own dough or buy them premade – pop them onto the grill until you can see grill marks, pile on your toppings on the grilled side and take your pizza off when you see the cheese start to bubble.

Vegetables


Vegetables can be bland and soggy if you overcook them, but at the same time you don’t want them to be undercooked either. Cut them into coins or slices and cook them for the appropriate amount of time. The high temperatures and relatively snappy cooking times mean that all the flavours and nutrients are better preserved, so they will be extra tasty and will have just that little edge over cooked vegetables.

Burgers


Like vegetables, burgers retain their flavour more so when cooked on a barbeque – just don’t squash them too hard because the juices will then run out. A barbeque is suitable for burger patties of all shapes, sizes and components. Try a burger made of turkey mince (if it's available locally) instead of beef, and if you are feeling adventurous, you might want to try a portabello mushroom patty seasoned with some of your favourite spices.

Fruit


If you are looking for something sweet to go with all your savoury goods, look no further than fruit! Grilling fruit brings out the sweetness in them, but be careful that you don’t end up burning the whole thing. Make fruit skewers, wrap them in foil and cook on low heat until they look golden and toasty. Living here in the Philippines, it's unlikely in our culture to grill fruits as a side dish whatsoever. But of course this is not new to me,  I've seen this in food network and I can't wait to try this one soon!

Barbeques are a great addition to your cooking arsenal, no matter what kind of cook you claim to be. If you are looking for a new barbeque, specialists such as Barbeques Galore can help you choose the right barbeque for you. You can cook almost anything on a barbeque, so let your imagination run wild!
