As I write this it’s the middle of summer… and raining! That’s why the second the sun comes out, we’re all getting the barbecue out and marinating, grilling and cooking EVERYTHING outside! I guess that’s just part of the fun of living in the UK.

Of course, when the sun comes out and you’re in a rush before the next hailstorm, you might not have a barbecue to hand, but we’ve got that problem sorted.

In case you can’t find a barbie, or want to try your hand at making your own, check out Barry doing a bit of DIY in the garden. Yes, it’s not the most sturdy, and you could definitely do a better job than him, but he tried his best!

To give him credit, a wheelbarrow is ideal for all of your barbecue needs. It’s portable, pretty easy to make, there’s no need for any serious tools and if you happen to have two, just stick one over the top for a cheap outdoor oven!

We can’t say too much about Barry’s lack of DIY skills either, because he’s also spent a year building the ultimate trailer barbecue.

It may not be quite as easy as the wheelbarrow, but it has to be the best portable barbecue around, with a huge grill and room for a coolbox, wood or charcoal, herbs and um… flowers. If you’re looking for a project then give one of these a go!

Now, we all know how good grilled meat is – burgers, steaks, chicken and fish all taste so much better with that characteristic charcoal taste – but remember, it’s not just meat that’s amazing on the grill. You always need a salad in your spread, so why not make the most of the barbie and cook some more alternative dishes? By grilling peaches to go with blue cheese and pecans you can make your salads the main event. It. Is. Amazing.

There’s actually loads of fruit that can be barbecued. Watermelon tastes incredible when grilled, and is perfect with feta, mint and leaves. Another is pineapple with coriander or cinnamon. And next time you have the grill going, wrap up a banana in tin foil and bake it right in the coals!

If you’re really looking for a challenge then don’t even stick to barbecuing in summer – if you’ve got a lid then try doing your Christmas turkey on the barbie! We started out thinking it could be near impossible, but it actually tasted great (although possibly not enough to make us stand in the cold again!).

Seriously though, using a lid to make an oven and roasting meat is a great idea; just make sure you’ve got a good thermometer and plenty of charcoal handy, as you’ll need to keep the temperature up by regularly switching the coals out!That’s our alternative barbecue, but, what’s the most unusual thing that you’ve barbecued? Let us know in the comments!


7 Butterbeer Recipes To Enjoy This Fall

Harry Potter fans first read about Butterbeer in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Students took trips to Hogsmeade, where they tasted the sweet beverage at the Three Broomsticks. Harry believes it is “the most delicious thing he'd ever tasted” and describes how it “seemed to heat every bit of him from the inside.” So how does it really taste, and how can you make Butterbeer? I'm here to tell you.

Obviously, Potter fans were entranced by this beverage. If something is described as the most delicious thing someone has ever tasted, readers aren’t content to just accept that — they want to taste it for themselves. And though you can now purchase Butterbeer at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, it’s a foam-topped cream soda type beverage that doesn’t quite match the book description (though it is honestly pretty delicious).

Luckily, there are tons of Potter fans who are also fantastic chefs, and number one on the list of Harry Potter food and drinks to cook is Butterbeer. Forget pumpkin juice, fire whisky, and any of the various confections described at Hogwarts feasts (well maybe don't completely forget them, because there are so many opportunities to make great HP-inspired cocktails) — the truly great beverage in the Harry Potter universe will always be Butterbeer. It signified Harry’s rebellion and freedom when he escaped to Hogsmeade, the thrill of exploring the magical world, and the comfort of friendship. This is a truly magical beverage. Here are a few enchanting recipes that will warm you from the heart — and the stomach. The best part is that many of them use similar ingredients, so you have the perfect excuse to try them all.

What alternative to worcestershire sauce would you suggest?

I am desperate to try your idea for Texas Smoked Brisket, but I need to substitute the Worcestershire sauce with something else.

I have had a life-long hatred for it and can't be near it because the smell makes me wretch.

Answer
Hi Mick,
It's a good question. Not only is Worcestershire sauce in my Texas Smoked Brisket it's also a key ingredient in many of my homemade barbecue sauce recipes too.

There are two main reasons for wanting to avoid Worcestershire sauce and they are for those that have a gluten intolerance and others (like you) that simply don't like it.

To answer the last point first, if you don't like it, why have a substitute because you're probably not going to like that either? Just leave it out.

Worcestershire sauce contains vinegar brewed from barley and this is where coeliac or gluten intolerant people have a problem. Barley contains gluten.

To be fair, I've had a conversation with my local vinegar manufacturer about the relative concentration of gluten in malt vinegar (malt also contains gluten) and their analysis shows it to be at less than 30 parts per million ie. trace levels.

That said, my daughter has a gluten intolerance and I know that she reacts badly to Worcestershire sauce so we have to have a gluten free alternative.

Many alternative recipes start with soy sauce. which also contains gluten. You can get gluten free soy sauce but it's mega expensive and you can make an alternative to Worcestershire sauce without using soy sauce.

This is my favourite gluten free recipe to use as an alternative to Worcestershire sauce:

  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon tamarind paste
  • A pinch of cloves
  • A pinch of garlic powder
  • A splash of chilli sauce

Just mix and shake. Replace Worcestershire sauce in any recipe measure for measure with this concoction and you won't go far wrong.


Other campfire cooking stands (that I’ve not tried yet)

Rotisserie Grill and Spit

A rotisserie grill and spit should only be considered by the most committed (and patient) of meat lovers and serial Barbequers. However, if campfire cooking is your thing then this style of campfire cooking offers excellent versatility, enabling you to cook a huge array of meals, including a Sunday roast, should you wish! They usually pack flat for easy transportation.

Barbecue Swivel Grill

An alternative option to a regular grill is a barbecue swivel grill. These enable you to swing the grill off the heat when you need to serve up or tend to your food. Plus, the grill height can be easily altered to the size of your fire and fire pit. The nature of its design makes it best suited to grilling food directly over the flames rather than using cookware that may weigh too much for it to remain stable.

Alternate Honey Barbecue Sauce With Riblets (Applebee's Copycat)

This is a recipe I originally found in the Recipe Link but it's also posted in various other cooking sites. I include this recipe here, because Honey Barbeque is one of my favorite sauces ever! Advice: Feel free to try the sauce with any piece of meat, other than riblets ( my personal favorite is chicken legs or chicken in general ) but avoid hard and chewy meat like beef (unless it's your thing). You need something soft, try pork. If you favor more spice than sweetness, cut down on the honey and increase the spice quantity for a sharp difference. Also, you can use 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of brown sugar, instead of molasses. By no means whatsoever, don't mix the sauce with the riblets in any stage of their cooking. Simply soak them in the sauce just before serving. Water and fat that meat excretes during baking will liquefy and spoil your sauce. You can cook them altogether in a deep frying pan though, just over low heat. Matches well with side dishes like french fries, coleslaw and very mild blue cheese or sour cream dip. Enjoy!


HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BARBECUE SEASONING MIX

Making this seasoning mix is really easy. Just measure the ingredients into a bowl and stir. Mix right in an airtight container if you are going to use it at a later time.

This spice mix can be used for seasoning food before cooking or sprinkle it over cooked meats for a final touch. It can also be mixed with oil and vinegar or lemon juice to make a barbecue marinade.

If you are using the barbecue seasoning mix right away, fell free to substitute brown sugar for the maple sugar. I don’t recommend using brown sugar in a seasoning mix that you will store because of the amount of moisture from the coating of molasses on the sugar granules. You may end up with clumps.

HOW TO USE BARBECUE SEASONING MIX AS A MARINADE

Marinades generally consist of an oil, an acid and seasonings. So gather the ingredients you will need:

  • Acid – to tenderize the meat like vinegars, lemon juice, orange juice or wine.
  • Flavoring – use 1 tablespoon of seasoning mix per 1/2 cup marinade. Add even more flavor with a splash of soy sauce, fish sauce or a drizzle of honey.
  • Oil – holds the marinade together, helps keep the seasonings in suspension and adds moisture to the meat.
  • Salt – helps add flavor, leaves meat tender and juicy. **No additional salt is necessary if salt was added to seasoning mix.

WHAT SPICES DO I NEED TO MAKE BARBECUE SEASONING MIX?

  • Maple Sugar – maple sugar is pure maple syrup that has had all the moisture removed. It adds maple aroma, flavor and sweetness. It’s available at some grocery stores and online. Substitute granulated sugar if you don’t have maple sugar. Brown sugar is not recommended because its moisture content may cause the seasoning mix to clump when stored.
  • Smoked Paprika – regular paprika is made from dried crushed chilies. Smoked Paprika gets it’s strong smoky flavor from smoking the the same type of peppers before they are crushed. Oak wood is often used for the smoking.
  • Dried Ground Mustard – Hot and savory. Adds the taste of mustard to recipes.
  • Dried Thyme Leaves – adds a warm, woody and minty flavor to cooked dishes.
  • Cayenne – hot and pungent, this is a red powdered spice made from ground dried chili peppers. Cayenne packs some heat so a little goes a long way.
  • Cumin – a nutty, earthy tasting spice with citrus undertones. One of the most used spices in the world, cumin is common in Mexican and Indian cooking.
  • Coriander – complex flavor that is slightly musky, raw and earthy with hints of orange.
  • Garlic Powder – common seasoning made from ground, dehydrated garlic.
  • Onion Powder – common seasoning made from ground, dehydrated onions.
  • Chili Powder – a blend of spices commonly including ancho chile powder, cumin, paprika and Mexican oregano.

Homemade Snow Cone Syrup Troubleshooting and FAQ

CAN I USE SOMETHING OTHER THAN SUGAR TO SWEETEN MY SNOW CONE SYRUP?
Absolutely! Any natural sweetener will work for this recipe honey, maple syrup, agave, coconut sugar, and so on.

The only exception are natural sweeteners like stevia and xylitol. They will not thicken as the sauce cooks, so your snow cone syrup will be a more watery consistency.

WHY DIDN'T MY SNOW CONE SYRUP THICKEN?
There are two possible reasons..

1. You used a sweetener that doesn't thicken when reduced, such as stevia or xylitol.

2. The snow cone syrup simply didn't boil long enough to reduce and thicken. Reheat the syrup and bring to a boil, then continue to boil over medium heat until syrup thickens.

HOW LONG DOES HOMEMADE SNOW CONE SYRUP LAST IN THE FRIDGE?
This syrup is basically a jam that's been watered down, so you can treat it the same way you would a homemade jam. For us, that's about 2 months in the fridge, but I doubt yours will last that long!

HOW MUCH SYRUP DOES ONE BATCH MAKE?
Resulting quantity will vary based on how long you boil the syrup and how thick you like your snow cone syrup to be. However, in general 1 batch of any of the recipes will make about 2 cups of syrup.

HOW MANY SNOW CONES WILL 1 RECIPE COVER?
10-30 snow cones can be made per syrup batch, depending on the size of the snow cones in question. We usually use about 1-2 tablespoons per cup of shaved ice.


How do you make the best barbecue sauce?

  1. Stir: In a pan over medium-low heat, mix all the ingredients.
  2. Simmer: Allow the mixture to thicken by simmering for about 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Store: Once thickened, you may then transfer it to an airtight container.

Can you make it in advance?

Yes! It can stay in the refrigerator for up to a week or in the freezer for 3 months. So, you can make this ahead of your party or whatnot and not bother with it on the day itself. Make sure you keep it in a closed airtight container.

Best ways to use BBQ sauce:

Great as a dip for anything fried, or oven-baked, and most especially for grilled meat. I like dipping oven-baked chicken tenders in it! You can even marinate meat with it and to baste on when grilling.

You can put it in sandwiches, burgers, or wraps too. As a dressing for a salad? Sure! It can be used to flavor a lot of dishes, not just as a dip.

Homemade Baking Mix Recipe – A Substitute for ‘Bisquick’

I have to admit, growing up, I had no idea that you could make your own baking mix.

I never saw the need to because we always had a box of Bisquick in our kitchen pantry. Mom would pull it out and make the best pancakes, waffles, biscuits and even dumplings with the ingredients in that magical yellow box.

As like most children do, I followed in the footsteps of my parents and purchased and used it just like they did.

That was until I unfortunately ran out in the middle of making dinner. I was making a casserole that called for a Bisquick topping. I didn&rsquot have time to run to the store so I turned the box over and looked at the Ingredients.

Wow! Was I shocked that there were so many ingredients listed. I sorted through what I had on hand and with just 5 common ingredients, I had made my own baking mix!

My first attempt I used butter instead of shortening. That required me to keep the baking mix in the refrigerator or freezer. That worked for awhile, but my space was limited.

So I switched to using shortening in this recipe so that it could be stored in my pantry instead. I put it in an air-tight container and whenever a recipe calls for &lsquoBisquick&rsquo I use my own baking mix with a 1:1 ratio. And for a healthier version &ndash use coconut oil instead of shortening!

Best part of all is that it can be made in minutes with your food processor. Just pulse the ingredients together and you are all done!

Homemade Baking Mix

INGREDIENTS:

4 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour

2 1/2 tablespoons baking powder

2 Tablespoons granulated sugar

1 cup vegetable shortening

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. In a large bowl or food processor, blend together the dry ingredients.

2. With a pastry cutter or in your food processor, cut in the vegetable shortening until it looks like small crumbs.

Store in an air-tight container.

**For a healthier version replace shortening with Coconut Oil.
