Summer the time for BBQ

Summer is probably my favourite time of the year, especially as it means I can go on holiday, enjoy the outside and most importantly, have a BBQ.

I recently moved into a house, prior I was living in flats for the past 10 years and one of the things that I have missed the most is, not having a garden and not being able to have a BBQ. That is why I’m making sure that I make good use of the garden and when the weather is good, get the BBQ out and cook some fantastic food.

Having a Summer BBQ is such a great way to cook and eat food, especially as you can make it an even, invite family or friends round and make it some fun. This is why I’ve put together a list of some of the best BBQ and summer foods, snacks and assortments that you need.

Food on the BBQ Cooking

By Amazon

We all know and love Amazon as they have a fantastic range of products that you can get delivered straight to your door. Well, Amazon has another side to their business and it’s called By Amazon. You can get loads of fresh food,s milk, bread and even BBQ products delivered straight to your door. You do need to be an Amazon Prime member to take advantage of this. Oh, and there are no additional delivery fees either.

As you can see here, there is a huge range of salad, sausages, meat-free foods, pasta salads, pulled pork, and rolls, this is only the tip of the iceberg that By Amazon has to offer. Make sure this is on your list for home delivery as the food quality is fantastic!!!


Now I don’t know if you’re like me and like to make your own kebab skewers, well I have a fantastic solution for you. Oddbox sells wonky fruit and vegetables, these are fruit and veg that the supermarkets won’t sell because they don’t look right or conform to their high standards.

As you can see from the picture of the fruit and vegetables, there is absolutely nothing wrong with them, in fact, I can’t see why they are called wonky fruit and veg because there is nothing wonky about them.

Oddbox wonky vegetables and fruit

Here is a box full of fruit and veg which can be turned into fantastic salads, veggie kebabs, soups and more. I have used some of this for veggie kebabs and the rest of the veggies, I have used in salads and even made a delicious butternut squash soup. Check out Oddbox and buy wonky.

Farmison and Co

Generally, I love a good burger, it is one of the foods I like to eat when I go out for a meal or when on holiday, as you can’t go wrong with a burger. Getting a quality burger at home, I would usually say make your own as you know what is in it, however, Farmison and Co make one of the best burgers that I have EVER eaten.

Farmison and Co BBQ Burgers

These burgers taste so good it’s unreal. They sent me Korean Burgers, Lamb Merguez Burgers and Hand Pressed Steak & Bone Marrow Burgers. I have tried them all and I have to say, they are AMAZING!!! Packed full of flavour, don’t shrink unlike supermarket burgers and they give you a taste explosion, totally worth getting burgers from Farmison and Co.

Real Good Tomato Sauce and Real Good Spicy BBQ Sauce

No BBQ is complete without a decent tomato and BBQ sauce and that is where Real Good comes in. They have a fantastic tomato sauce that has no added sugar and 78% less salt and you know what, this is now a staple in my home. The Spicy BBQ sauce is awesome and something that will pimp up your burgers and hotdogs.

Not only is the taste of Real Good sauces really good, but it is also uses top quality natural ingredients that is good for you.

The Real Good Tomato and Real Good Spicy BBQ Sauces need to be on your BBQ list, once you try it, you will never need to buy the any other brand.

Tropical Sun

One thing that makes a BBQ apart from the BBQ itself is having the right sauces to make sure your food tastes amazing and that is where Tropical Sun comes in. They have a range of chilli sauces that are perfect for burgers, hotdogs and even on salads.

They have sauces from sweet chilli right the way through to Carolina Reaper sauce, there is a warning with the Carolina Reaper chilli sauce, it is very hot, a bit too much for me, but it does have a great flavour.

Tropical Sun Chilli Sauce

If you’re looking for a sauce that will certainly pimp up your BBQ, then you need the Tropical Sun sauces.

Banhoek Chilli Oil

I love chilli, whether that is chilli in food, chilli sauce on food or even chilli oil for when I’m cooking or dressing a salad. I have tried a few chilli oils in my time, nothing compares to Banhoek Chilli Oil, this is one of the best chilli oils and it is so multi-purpose.

I have tried this chilli oil in a few things including cous-cous and to help marinade veggie kebabs and this is one of the tastiest that I have used.
