Chuck it on the barbie!

Smack-bang in the middle of a scorching hot summer, we often find ourselves spending the day at the beach, on and off the road exploring, or lounging around in our second set of skin (read: bikinis) to make the most of this glorious weather. But as the mercury continues to rise, who wants to spend an afternoon inside cooking up a storm when you could be basking in the sunshine? 
That’s where the genius invention we know and love, the barbecue, comes into play. Cooking outdoors while socialising with friends is as easy as well, chucking it on the barbie. So for all the keen BBQ-er's out there, Remix have got you sorted with some quick, easy and delicious recipes perfect for BBQ cooking.
