Just tucked away off a little side street near Peckham Rye Station is the London Barbecue School, which specialises in all things B-B-Q.
We were to play with the Kamado Joes and experiment with marinades and sauces using the quintessential British picnic accompaniment – Branston Pickle.
Cooking with the Kamado was completely different to any other kind of barbecue I’ve tried – it was more like an oven, in the way you could control the temperature, but gave all the meat a deliciously smokey flavour.
The Branstons team had developed a few recipes using their signature pickle, as well as their range of barbecue sauces.
My personal favourites were the marinades made using the pickle – it was really flavourful and went really well as an accompaniment. The Tex-Mex Chicken Tacos and sticky pork chops in particular were really lovely. Branston Pickle in marinades – who knew?
