| Hi All,
After purchasing a barbeque late last year for the first time I still
consider myself a novice where barbeque food is concerned.
Ok so I have cooked Souvla and did some great chicken fillets
last night with peppers and onions but could do with some
suggestions for what else to cook.
So what are your favourites? What do you like cooking on

| use thick tin foil and make parcels with fish a little garlic,lemon and white wine...
Bananas left in the skins.... (make a toffee sauce before hand and pour on or icecream etc)
apples go sweet and soft and change into an almost toffee like flavour..|

| I,ve just done cubed pork souvlaki marinated for a few hours beforehand in a little red wine lemon juice oregano salt and pepper. Skewer then bbq on the rotating thingy bit ( a bbq is man oven so I don,t do the actual cooking :roll:) with olive oil drizzled on, lovely. My OH loves his corn on the cob bbq in fact won,t eat it any other way.
For dessert try brushing a mixture of lemon juice, cinnamon and a honey mixed slightly warmed then brushed on skewered fruit i.e. bits of banana kiwi mango pineapple mandarin grapes etc then quickly bbq take off and serve with a chocolate fondue or melted chocolate kept melted by a candle over a heatproof dish. Dip in and enjoy.
BBQ spare ribs in a hot bbq sauce
Full rack of ribs from butcher and cut them up.
I x Passata
approx I inch from a bottle of dark soy sauce
2 dessertspoon of worcestershire sauce or more for the right flavour
2 dessertspoons of honey as required for taste. The more honey the quicker they blacken. Warm up as you are adding ingredients. Thats it.
To make the above hot and spicy add chilli seeds to required hot and spicey flavour.
This sauce can be used on its own or as a marinade for meat
I pour some over the ribs and put foil underneath until sauce is dried up then finish over the flame. Keep some sauce on one side to add to your plate if needed, very messy dish but tasty.
Marinated meat is good on a bbq imo and if you google it you will find loads, red or green thai chicken kebabs are easy, chicken tikka kebabs.
But when our family were here from the UK, they wanted sausages and hamburgers, at least the kids did, so thats what they got, they still remember it, so its not always worth going to lots of bother as sitting outside eating in a warm and balmy Cyprus, with a greek salad a cold beer and a bbq pork chop with good company, cannot imo be beaten.
I,ll expect our invites when you have had a bit of practice ok :wink: or maybe let you try on others first :roll:|

Get a pineapple slice off the top and core out the middle (leave a bit in the bottom so dont core right through) and fill with the void with brandy, wrap in tin foil and cook until hot right through. eat it for dessert but dont drive afterwards.

How about salmon which has been marinated in honey, chilli and soy sauce. Or, sausages which you brush some honey onto just before you take them off of the bbq. You can then sprinkle with some sesame seeds if you like them.

| Chicken kebabs. Marinade the chicken cubes in a bit of Patacks Madras paste mixed with a little yougurt or cream, then skewer with peppers, onion, and mushrooms. Yum.
Giant Spicy Chips. Cut wedges of potatoe, put in a food bag, and throw in some oil, chilli powder, mixed spices, and marinade in the fridge over night. Cook for a while in the oven, then place on the BQ. you can do the same with any veg, so long as you cut them big enough.|

Apart from the obvious... pumpkin, haloumi, butternut squash, aubergine, courgette, sweetcorn, any fish wrapped in banana leaves, pork chops marinated in cider and apple juice.
