Winter Warmer Skewers
When it comes to creating the perfect Winter Warmer Skewers, having the right grill can make all the difference. Weber, with their efficient heat distribution and easy ignition, ensure that your skewers are cooked to perfection even in the cold months. The precise temperature control of Weber BBQs allows you to infuse those marinated chunks of meat or veggies with a delightful smoky flavor.
For a seasonal twist, consider marinating your skewer ingredients with warm and robust spices. Think cumin, paprika, and a hint of cinnamon. The smoky grill will infuse these flavors into the ingredients, making each bite an amazing experience.
Serve your skewers with a rich and hearty dipping sauce. A combination of Greek yogurt, lemon, garlic, and fresh herbs creates a zesty and comforting complement to the smoky skewers. This warming treat is bound to keep everyone toasty and satisfied around the grill.
There’s something comforting about a tender, smoky brisket, slowly cooked to perfection on the BBQ. Rub the brisket with your favourite seasonings, then smoke it low and slow until it’s melt-in-your-mouth delicious. An added bonus? Your entire backyard will smell amazing.
Grilled Stuffed Mushrooms
Winter is mushroom season, and there’s no better way to enjoy these earthy delights than by grilling them. Stuff large mushrooms with a mixture of breadcrumbs, cheese, garlic, and herbs. Grill until they’re golden and bubbling, and you’ll have a scrumptious starter or side dish.

As you slowly smoke the pork, the air will fill with the irresistible scent of barbecue. It’s an aroma that draws family and friends closer, eager to indulge in the tender, smoky strands of pulled pork.
