I'll start off with a change from the usual burgers and sausages and introduce some tasty mains and sides, but of course the first step is to light your charcoal BBQ at least an hour before you want to start cooking.

Arrange the coals in a stack in the centre of the BBQ pit.

Place kindling around the base and a firelighter to get it started.

Once the coals have caught, you can spread them out and leave them to turn to ash - this is the time to start cooking.

I also like to add some mesquite wood chips for added flavour.

MESQUITE WOOD CHIPS FOR SMOKING WEBER por 6.99 Euros

If you need to top up the coals, add them around the edge and allow them to burn down before introducing them to the main fire pit.

Perfect for cooking on:

Barbecue coals lit up

 

Main dishes:

Prawn and Shrimp skewers.

Salmon marinated with chili and lime.

Cowboy Caviar, you must try this. Link to recipe on web https://www.easyanddelish.com/texas-caviar-recipe/

and finally a nice peachslaw....

Start with the usual coleslaw receipe and add bell peppers, fresh mint, chopped nuts and peach chunks

Looks absolutely gorgeous @MI5. Particularly like the salmon marinated with chili and lime. I presume this is prepared then wrapped in foil before  cooking. How long does it take?

Love skewers, (unless people put peppers on) I like peppers but they don't like me.

One more question. Have you got one of those massive barbeques?

@Cleoriff 

Yes, wrap the salmon in foil and it takes no longer than 10 to 15 mins to cook. 
I have a combi bbq. Half gas and half coal.

Thank you @MI5 for a very interesting thread.

I love coleslaw but have never tried adding peppers, fresh mint, chopped nuts and peach chunks - all of which I also love. Going to add these to my shopping list and give this a try over the weekend. 😋

I hope the weather is good enough over the weekend, this year's summer didn't allow for many BBQs!

These look great @MI5 👍 and certainly better than the usual burnt offerings I'm used to.  I especially fancy the Texas/Cowboy Caviar and the salmon dish also looks delicious.  Can't fault any of them actually and just a pity it's raining here otherwise I'd be firing up the barbi.  Problem is, it would more than likely end up being the burnt offerings again. 🌭 Thanks for posting 🍻

Have you all ever tried the German Bratwurst that is available for example at big Tesco shops @MI5 @BobM @Mi-Amigo @Cleoriff ? I know it's the German in me coming out for that, but they are a fool-proof dish, even my partner can't burn them enough for them to taste horrible! 😅

Cor ~ Proper food @MI5 

Love the prawn and shrimp 

Salmon Chilli and Lime is fabulous:

I don't have a barbi but could cook this in the oven ~ gorgeous.

Thank you for the very interesting recipes posted on the new "today" updated Community Forum too !  😄

This is good food very tasty, light and delicious too.  Not heavy chunks of meat.

Fruit mixed in with the meal is a great choice .  Love it ~ thank you

Often have bratwurst with sauerkraut when in the German office but not tried cooking my own at home.
