Marinate a whole chicken in smoky piri-piri spices and cook on the barbecue for a crowd-pleasing centrepiece. If you don't like it too hot, adjust the amount of chillies in the piri-piri marinade. We like to serve with homemade wedges or jacket potatoes, coleslaw, some buttered corn cobs and chilli & mint peas.

If you're a fan of piri-piri, try these piri-piri pork ribs and piri-piri pulled pork.

4. Fish tacos with green jalapeño salsa & chilli cream

5. Chicken souvlaki

Souvlaki are a popular fast food choice in Greece, and the assemble-your-own element makes them perfect for a summer gathering. Serve yours with warm pitta, a simple salad and tzatziki.

For another Greek-style barbecue dish, try these chicken gyros with warm pittas.

Packed with more-ish Creole spices, try these barbecued skewers for a healthier addition to your spread. It's a bit different to your typical skewer, layering pork fillet with juicy charred pineapple and served with black beans and rice.

See our BBQ skewer recipes for more ideas.

8. Aussie burgers with the lot

bbq recipes from around the world

Switch things up by serving your burgers the Australian way, stacking grilled beef burgers with cheese, bacon, pineapple, beetroot, tomato and lettuce. If you're left with more burger patties than you need, you can always freeze for future dates.

Find more ideas in our collection of beef burger recipes.

10. BBQ smores

bbq recipes from around the world

Our take on an American campfire classic is an easy dessert to cook on the barbecue, using just three ingredients. Simply sandwich two digestives with a square of chocolate and marshmallow, wrap up tightly in the foil, pop on the hot BBQ and leave to cook for 3-4 mins on each side.
