Things you didn’t know you could barbecue

A classic BBQ is hard to beat: Snags, steaks, sauces, seasonings, and salads.

But did you know there is a ton of delicious food that can be barbecued beyond the standard?

Sweet or savoury, dinner or dessert, the trusty grill is a versatile beast.

Thanks to our friends at Weber, we’re lifting the lid on a bunch of mouthwatering creations that are ripe for time spent on the hotplate.

These adaptable creations can easily be put on the barbie at a BIG4 park. Pictured: BIG4 Taggerty, VIC.
