3. Sizzle up a flavoured sausage

Flavoured sausages are a great way to mix it up on the barbie this summer. Spicy Cracked Pepper, Luxurious Tomato and Basil, Spicy Chorizo, Bratwurstor Traditional Cumberland. Just sizzle up some sausages, a little-caramelized onion, tomato sauce and mustard, cheese and serve in a slice of white bread or as a dog in a hot dog bun.

Butchers Tip: Add some sour kraut for a probiotic hit and that extra tang.


4. Choose a Steak that has been Aged.

You can't go past prime quality beefthat has been carefully aged for at least 6 days to maximise tenderness and flavour. Make sure you get the grill nice and hot to sear in all the flavours and don't overcook it - No one wants a chewy steak! We recommend Flintstone, Ribeye and Fillet the perfect BBQ Steaks.

Brad the Butchers Tip: Make sure you rest the meat off the grill for 5 minutes to really lock in the juices and enjoy the rich flavour.


5. Make it a Breakfast Barbie.

Get outside and enjoy that warm summer morning breeze as you whip up a breakfast barbie. Breakfast Sausages, Bacon, Tomato, Egg, Hashbrowns - and your good to go.
