Barbecue Recipe Ideas

The word ‘Barbecue’ can mean such different things to different people, so although this is this catch-all collection of BBQ recipes, Bush Cooking has also broken down the definition to more practical and regional interpretations.

The most common variation is BBQ Grilling which is done on top of a flame (wood, charcoal, or gas). The cooking surface is typically a grill grate.

In many locations, such as Australia and Korea, BBQ is a flat top grill that requires completely different types of recipes so we have broken these of the BBQ Griddle.

Emerging from this is grills with lids that allow the additional techniques of roasting and baking which we are calling BBQ Closed Grill.

Within the United States of America, particularly in the South, and a growing trend globally is BBQ Smoking which is a very different method of cooking again.

The final cooking style group under the term BBQ is spit-roasting or rotisserie cooking. If looking for recipes on this try BBQ Spit.
