Hosting the Perfect BBQ Party in Ireland

As the heatwave in Ireland continues, many more people are turning to BBQ as a way to bring family and friends together during the glorious weather.

To make a memorable assembly, there are many factors which need to be considered such as the menu alongside the BBQ itself, and its fuel.


BBQ Charcoal Ireland

Everyone is accustomed to the centrepiece of any BBQ which generally consists of burgers, sausages, ribs, skewers or chicken, and a combination of all five is bound to be well received! However, side dishes in a BBQ are oftentimes overlooked, but a BBQ side dish is done well can be the start of the show. Some classic choices include tangy potato salad, grilled corn on the cob, or grilled vegetables. All of these can be made at the same time as the meat, saving you time, and giving you maximum flavour. But if you really want to take it up a notch, you can use wood chips for smoking, or even use some BBQ charcoal; both of which will leave you with that delectable BBQ taste.


Wood Chips for Smoking


Mesquite wood lends a bold and intense smoky flavour to your BBQ dishes. It works exceptionally well with beef and pork, adding a distinctive taste that is often associated with traditional Texas-style BBQ.


Hickory wood provides a strong and rich smoky flavour that complements various types of meat, including ribs, chicken, and turkey. It's a popular choice for adding depth and complexity to your BBQ creations.


Applewood offers a milder and slightly sweet smoky flavour, making it an excellent choice for poultry, pork, and seafood. It imparts a delicate aroma that enhances the overall taste of your dishes.
