BBQ Weather

As the weather has been so lovely I thought it would be a great idea to have a BBQ at one of the many large parks in Brighton and invite a load of friends so that what I did. I went to the butchers and bought Cumberland sausages, burgers, pork steaks, chicken drumsticks and thighs and some ribs. I marinated the ribs, chicken and pork in a spicy home made marinade that had fresh onion and garlic, cayenne powder, 1 tsp of brown sugar, nutmeg, allspice, pinch of salt and was the blended with orange juice, olive oil, soy sauce and the juice of a lime. I put all the chicken, ribs and pork in a separate container's and put them in the fridge to marinade for a few hours as that was all the time I had, it would have been much better if it was left over night!
I also made some garlic field mushrooms which are the really big ones, I just mixed crushed garlic and parsley with butter and spread generous amounts on the mushrooms and baked them in the oven in tin foil for 20Min's and I would finish them on the BBQ to crisp them up a bit. I made a potato salad with new potato's, mayonnaise and spring onion and also made a big salad to go with it as well as bread rolls and baps of course!
Everything turned out very well and we all had a lovely day, I ended up cooking everything and the food didn't last long! I hope to have many more with Lot's of other lovely food to tell you about.
