16 Recipes to Spice up your Summer BBQ

There’s is nothing better than a BBQ on a sunny day. You spend the day lounging in the sun, around 4 you try to light up the barbecue, 2 hours later it’s hot enough to cook something (gas barbecues are the way forward) and what do you cook? Boring old sausages and burgers.

This summer why not spice up your BBQ menu with some delicious new recipes? Perfect for inviting over friends and celebrating in the sun. It will be raining again soon, after-all.

Here are 16 brilliant BBQ recipes to try out:
