You get a lovely combination of creaminess and char when you grill an avocado, then dress it up sweet or savoury, maybe some chocolate and brown sugar


Skewer a few strawberries and grill until lightly charred; they make for a lovely jammy Eton mess


Are wonderful cooked in their shells on the grill or nestled in the coals


A gland that doesn't sound or look appealing, but is delicious and creamy when boiled and grilled until crispy




Pretty much any veg when cooked on a BBQ turns out unexpectedly good


Create a raft of rhubarb and skewer to hold together, grill until charred and glaze with honey and brown sugar


Get yourself a stainless bucket with a lid and load with mussels, cook through and pour on a big platter drenched with garlic butter


Heart, kidneys, liver, all are fabulous, charred over fire

Pigs head

A whole pigs head smoked for a long time creates the most amazing pulled pork, just watch all the fat dripping onto the coals; I use a pan underneath to catch the dripping fat


Most people would think of cheese melting on a grill, but try other things rather than the standard halloumi; a nice smoked camembert is a revelation
