This week marks National BBQ Week - but don’t just throw some boring old bangers on the barbie to celebrate.

Here are our top picks to help you add some variety to your barbecue.

 

Memphis-style BBQ ribs

Follow this recipe to bring the flavours of southern America to your barbecue with these Memphis-style BBQ ribs.

The tangy marinade sauce is packed full of flavour - marinate for 4 to 8 hours to get the best results.

 

Turkey Burgers 

Burgers at a barbecue needn't be limited to beef or chicken.

Try this Bon Appetit recipe for delicious homemade turkey burgers on sesame-seed buns

Top with Monterey Jack cheese and thick red onion slices for a twist on the traditional cheeseburger.

 

Stuffed Peppers

These mini Mexican stuffed peppers pack a punch, mixing chilli flakes and pepper with pinto beans and mozzarella.

Or for a Greek inspired dish, try this Rowse Honey recipe for grilled halloumi peppers.

 

Cheese and Chilli Mini Melts

This quick and easy side dish will take your barbecue to the next level.

Stuff tortillas with strong cheddar cheese, chillies and tomatoes – like in this BBC recipe – and fold in half before grilling.

Cook for a couple of minutes on each side and then they’re good to go.

 

Jerked Fish

Fish is often overlooked at barbecues, but with the right flavours, it can be a real showstopper.

This BBC Good Food recipe combines grilled mackerel with a sweet soy sauce glaze.  

Or add some zing and spice into the mix with Jamie Oliver’s jerked sea bream.
