Although the smokiness from the barbecue might be all you need, there are some easy ways to add even more flavour while you cook.
Scatter fresh herbs and spices around the edges of your coals to give your barbecue smoke a lovely aroma. Try cinnamon sticks, whole star anise or bay leaves.
Use large sprigs of woody herbs, such as thyme or rosemary, as a brush for oils and marinades. If you throw the sprigs onto the coals after cooking, the smoke will help to keep insects at bay.
If you don’t have time to prepare a full marinade, try a quick dry rub instead. These 5 easy barbecue rubs use herbs and spices you probably have in your cupboard already.
