BBQ Tips and Tricks - for hosting the best Aussie BBQ

The Aussie BBQ is more than just a meal, it's an iconic Aussie event that brings people together to celebrate the simple joys of good food, good company, and the great outdoors. With a selection of your favourite Aussie meats from Craig Cook sizzling on the barbeque, and the sound of laughter and conversation in the air, there's no doubt that the BBQ is an essential part of the Australian way of life. 
Here are a few of our top tips to ensure you put on the best Aussie BBQ. 
Preparation is key! Plan your menu in advance, ensuring a balance of great Craig Cook meats, sides, and beverages to suit all tastes. If you are going to marinate your meats, make sure you do it ahead of time for maximum flavour.
Create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests. You want to make sure your guests are relaxed so set up a comfortable outdoor seating and make sure there is shade and an option to protect from the rain if the weather doesn’t go your way. If it is night time, adding some lighting can help to set the mood and a touch of flair to your BBQ.
Another great idea is to get your guest involved! Encourage your guests to join in the cooking fun by allowing them to show their own flair and cooking style at the BBQ. This adds an element of fun and keeps people entertained. 
Make sure you offer a variety of options when it comes to your menu selection. Many people have dietary restrictions and you don’t want one guest to be left out with nothing to eat. Choose a great selection of Craig Cook meats, and add some vegetarian options like grilled vegetables or halloumi cheese. 
One big mistake people make when BBQ’ing is going overboard.  Remember to keep it simple.  While elaborate gourmet dishes have their place, sometimes simplicity is best.  Let the quality of the ingredients shine by focusing on classic BBQ choices cooked to perfection. Wagyu, Sausages, Burgers, Steak, Kebabs are all crowd favourites! 
So fire up the barbie, gather your friends and loved ones, and let the fun begin!
