Who doesn’t need more great recipes for barbecue side dishes? Whether it’s Pulled Pork, Smoked Brisket, Ribs, Chicken or Steak, you’ve got your main dishes sorted for the big summer barbecue. But what to serve with it?
As with most times of the year, when I post recipes for main dishes, I get the same question.Inevitably, the questions start coming in asking, “What do you serve with that?”
Summer barbecue season is no different. However, one of the things I love about anything grilled or slow smoked from the backyard BBQ, is that there are so many different options to serve as side dishes.
Barbecue side dishes make all the difference.
In fact, in my opinion, what distinguishes a great barbecue party form a mediocre one is the selection of delicious side dishes. The dishes that accompany the delicious grilled and smoked meats are so important too.
Well, I suppose there is one thing needed in order to leave a lasting impression. Naturally, a really fantastic dessert is essential too, like my Ultimate Strawberries & Cream Cake.
So, since we are in the middle of barbecue season, I thought I’d put together a selection of the most popular sides from Rock Recipes. Also, I have added a few personal favourites to help elevate your next barbecue.
No doubt, it will be one your friends will talk about and ask for the recipes.
