A barbecue brunch is the perfect way to start the weekend regardless of whether it’s just you or if you invite over a few friends.

Brunch is without a doubt one of the best meals of the day, especially on the weekend. It’s a time when you can eat and drink at a leisurely pace and really enjoy catching up. Adding a barbecue brunch into the mix just makes sense because it gets you outdoors to sample the subtle smoky flavor that only a charcoal grill can create.

If you like the sound of a brunch barbecue, but you don’t know what to cook, here are some great ideas that you and your brunch guests will all love:

Barbecue Brunch Idea #5: Toast

Of course, not everything you cook has to be fancy. In fact, one of the best barbecue brunch dishes is the humble piece of toast. Cooked over a flame grill, it will take on a stronger smokier, flavor than usual, and will taste great simply smothered in butter. If you like your bread, but you want to do something a bit more substantial, opt for a chargrilled cheese sandwich with jalapenos.

Barbecue Brunch Idea #6: Fruit or Vegetable Kebabs

If you or one of your guests is a vegetarian, the humble fruit or vegetable kebab is always a winner. Even the blandest vegetables can be transformed by being cooked on a grill and then tossed in a flavorful dressing.
