When you're hosting a long weekend barbecue, preparing some simple sides to go with your meat is the way to add a delicious and nutritious touch to the festivities. Salads are always a crowd pleaser, with options ranging from warm potato salads with bacon to crunchy broccoli and carrot slaws for those who want something light yet flavourful. If you want something heartier, then roasted veggies like zucchini, capsicum or potato give a fuller flavour sensation that perfectly compliments your BBQ'd meat. Take your salads to the next level with our range of BBQ sauces, we've got something for everyone‚flavour palette.

We are talking about REAL flavour packed BBQ sauces from some of the biggest names in BBQ, like Kosmos Q, Flaming Coals and Lanes BBQ. 


Pro-tip don't forget the other non-sauce condiments like chutneys, relishes and aioli which can be served on the side. This is a great way to get creative with your barbecue spread and make it stand out from the rest.


Get some dessert sorted so you can finish off your meal with something sweet


Nothing quite beats a sweet finish to a delicious BBQ. So why not rustle up something tasty to round off your long weekend together? Why not make some Aussie classics such as lamingtons, pavlova or even better, an Australian version of the classic mud cake? Perfect with a cup of local coffee, you and your guests will have the perfect ending to an unforgettable gathering.
