An Australian Barbeque

Although the word barbeque in America means cooking meat and then coating it with sauce (with consistency and ingredients determined by the area of the country where the cooking is done), in Australia the word barbeque generally means cooking food outside on a grill. Meats used for barbecues include varieties of fish (including octopus), lamb, pork, and beef.


The food at this barbeque includes sausage (left), octopus (back), lamb (front) and fish (right). Most barbeques also include salad, bread, and dessert (we had strawberry pavlova and summer fruit).
