What Foods Can You Cook In A Scandinavian BBQ Cabin?

Scandinavian BBQ Cabins are elegantly designed timber garden huts that are specially adapted to allow you to prepare food on a barbecue grill oven. They are increasingly popular in the UK due to their versatility, allowing you to enjoy food that has an authentic BBQ flavour whatever the weather.

As the summer has fizzled out into a rather drizzly disappointment weather-wise for most of us Brits, a BBQ hut is a very useful asset to have! It means that all your hard work and preparation in putting together a barbecue or other garden-based social occasion for your family and friends will never be wasted again.

Of course, the cabins can be used all year round to cook and hold cosy social gatherings away from the main house. This can help you to feel closer to nature and enjoy your garden whatever the season, leaving the windows and doors open or keeping them closed to create a wonderfully warm and snug space.

It also provides a sense of escapism and is particularly useful if you want a change of scene without the hassle of organising a more formal night out. The space can be used by different generations to mix with friends without disturbing older or younger family members.

One of the questions people frequently ask is what can you cook in a BBQ hut? The answer is anything that you would cook on a regular outdoor barbecue, plus a whole lot more besides. Sausages, burgers, and grilled veggies and skewers all taste great when prepared on the controllable central grill.

However, the grill can also be used to slow roast whole chickens, pork chops, or cuts of beef or lamb. It’s also a perfect way of preparing seafood such as shrimp, salmon, trout or other fish. The grill ensures that the food is cooked evenly and avoids overdrying, which can deprive meat or fish of the natural juices that provide tenderness and extra flavour.

Vegetarians and vegans need not feel excluded however, as the grill is an excellent way to prepare deliciously smoky veggies. Just add a little seasoning to corn on the cob, bell peppers, courgettes, onions, mushrooms, or aubergines and char them to suit your taste.

They make the perfect accompaniment to rolls or baguettes, or they can be served with plant-based meat alternatives such as vegan sausages or burgers that will also cook to perfection on the grill. Alternatively, you can use a cooking pot hung over the fire to make stews, casseroles, and soups.

If you have a sweet tooth, why not treat yourself and the family to toasted marshmallows. For extra indulgence, dip them into some smooth melted chocolate. You can also achieve a mouthwatering caramelised finish by grilling fruits such as pears and bananas with a little brown sugar.
