BBQ season is fast approaching.

We may be in isolation, but this doesn't mean we cant start a barbecue for the household whilst the weather is bright!

Here's a recipe you NEED to try, if you decide to start one that is... 

These juicy wings are spiced with paprika, cumin, cayenne pepper and fresh oregano. Crisp up on the BBQ and serve with a light yogurt sauce.


  • ground cumin 4 tsp
  • paprika 4 tsp
  • cayenne pepper 4 tsp
  • fine sea salt 2 tsp
  • black peppercorns crushed to make 1 /4 tsp
  • chicken wings (Measurements here are done to 30 but you can have less or more). 
  • oregano a big handful, chopped


  • garlic 6 cloves, crushed
  • lemon juice 3 tbsp
  • natural yogurt 300g


  • STEP 1

    Prepare the BBQ for indirect cooking by stacking up the coals on one side so that there is a hot side and a cooler side.

  • STEP 2

    For the yogurt sauce, mix the garlic with the lemon juice in a bowl and set aside.

  • STEP 3

    Combine the spices, salt and pepper in a bowl. Toss the wings with 3 tbsp of this mixture in another bowl. Cook the wings on the cooler side of the BBQ, with the lid closed, for 30 minutes, turning halfway through. Move the wings to direct heat, over the coals, and cook for another 5 minutes, moving them around and turning to ensure even crisping. (Alternatively, heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 6 and divide the wings between two trays. Roast for 45 minutes until cooked through. Heat the grill to high and transfer the wings to a large tray, discarding any cooking juices. Grill for 15-20 minutes, turning them every 3-4 minutes, until charred and crispy.)

  • STEP 4

    Finish the yogurt sauce by straining the lemon and garlic mixture through a sieve into the yogurt with a pinch of salt and mix well.

  • STEP 5

    Toss the wings in the remaining spice mixture, then tip onto a platter and drizzle over some of the yogurt sauce, serving the rest on the side for dipping. Scatter over the oregano and serve.

Thin slices of potato slow cooked in the oven with cream and garlic – the most decadent of side dishes. Perfectly paired with steak. 

This rich creamy side dish doesn't take any time at all!

An American classic, and one of our favourite recipes here at the cooking guild.

The meat is slow-cooked then shredded or ‘pulled’ and layered with BBQ sauce, pickles and slaw in a soft brioche bun, super easy, super tasty...
