The easy Barbecue tips for grill masters and beginners
We all love a good barbecue and with the combination of Thermomix, the MEATER+ and the new Barbecue cookbook, we’re ready for a season of outdoor entertaining, easy-going family dinners and fun celebrations.

5 tips for a smart barbecue:


Select your menu and use guided cooking to prepare what you can ahead of time. Your Thermomix is your right-hand here – get prepped with marinades, sauces, salads, sides, breads, desserts… so when the day comes, you can sit back and relax. Our FREE recipe Barbecued Pork Ribs are a great make-ahead recipe.

Here are our most popular sides & salads from our Barbecue cookbook.

Zingy Avocado and Lime Dip


Chilli Raita Potato Salad


Pina Colada Ice Cream



Take the question mark away from perfectly barbecued meats. Use MEATER+ when barbecuing so it can be your virtual eye on the barbecue, providing updates on progress and guaranteeing your desired ‘done-ness’ for you. What’s more, the MEATER+ has an incredible 50m WiFi range so you can confidently join in the game of backyard cricket. The notifications sent straight to your phone means you’ll never drop the ball with overcooked meat.

Get started with these recipes:

Korean Barbecue Pork


Chilli-Lime Chicken


Classic Beef Burgers



Experiment with cedar planks and wraps. They add a natural, smoky flavour to a variety of foods including seafood, meats and vegetables. Tip: Soak your planks in water for 1 hour before use and avoid placing directly onto a heat source. Get smoking with the Middle Eastern Planked Salmon.



Patience is a virtue. And with the unbeatable smell of barbecued meats filling the air it’s no wonder we’re all in such a rush to get the meat from the grill to the plate (to our bellies). But after removing your meat from the grill, let it sit for a few minutes. This seals the juices and keeps the meat from drying out. Just in case you need a reminder, your MEATER+ will prompt you to rest your meat and let you know when it’s time to serve.

Relax and enjoy it. This is the ultimate in smart barbecuing – because you don’t need to keep a constant eye on the kitchen or the barbecue, with Thermomix and MEATER+ doing that for you, so you can simply enjoy being a part of it and call people to the table when it’s all ready.
