Summer BBQ: We’ve Got You Covered

We may not be as mad about them as the Australians are, but we do love our barbecues here in Ireland. Especially as they are a sign that summer is well and truly here. At the first sign of sunshine, get out there and clean up the old barbecue. Next, nip down to your local Lidl store and stock up. We have everything you need, from delicious peppered steaks to salads, fabulous craft beers and cordials, burgers, brioche buns, cheese, sauces and vegetables for grilling. Thinking of having a summer BBQ? Lidl has you covered.


Barbecues are a fantastic way to get the family, friends or neighbours together. Sometimes all you have to do is to light the coals and that’s enough to draw in everyone and once the sizzling starts so does the party. There’s something about cooking and eating in the fresh air that makes everything taste so much better. Need some summer BBQ ideas? We’ve got loads of them and lots to drink too.

Every week in Lidl

Every week in Lidl we have special offers and, sometimes, even actual barbecues themselves, together with the tools and utensils you need to cook on them like an expert. We have all the meat, salads, rolls, sauces and marinades and accessories that you could possibly want. How about some music? Check out our Bluetooth speakers and always keep an eye out for our garden furniture special offers. See yourself in a hammock or a sun lounger with a big sick juicy steak on the barbie and an ice cold craft beer in your hand. Now you’re getting the picture.

BBQ recipes

Looking for recipes or ideas for the barbecue? Then look no further than here because Lidl has some fantastic ideas for you, created by our master chefs in our own kitchens, so you don’t have to work too hard to create a barbecue they’ll remember for a long time. Check out our beef and burger recipes and marinades, together with summer salads for BBQs and have a great day in the garden with Lidl.

Make A Burger competition

Reckon your burger is the best one ever made? Do you have a secret sauce? Do you have a way to combine ingredients in a way that no one else has thought of yet? If you have, then we want to hear about it. We will test your recipe out and, if we like it, you could win a €500 shopping voucher to spend as you like in any of our 209 Lidl stores around the island of Ireland. Simply go to to enter.

Build your own Burger

Beef, chicken or turkey? Brioche bun, sub roll or floury bap? Cheddar, mozzarella or halloumi? Mayo, ketchup or mustard - or a combination of the three? There are some tough choices to be made but rest assured that Lidl has everything you need this summer to build the perfect burger. Remember that 100% of our meats are sourced from dedicated farms on the island of Ireland, guaranteeing quality, freshness and taste.

Quick Tip - Up your BBQ marinade game by mixing cider with soy sauce, honey, lemon, garlic and spices.

BBQ drinks

How about something fabulous to go with all of that wonderful food? We have some really delicious red, white, rosé and sparkling wines and champagnes, selected and graded by our experts. We’ve also got some very interesting craft beers, refreshing ciders, sparking summer cocktails and, of course, the old favourites like Guinness and Carlsberg – perfect accompaniment for your al fresco feast. Have a look in The Cellar at your local Lidl.


So if you’re planning a BBQ tonight or even this weekend, pop into Lidl first, visit us online or check out our weekly leaflet for great BBQ ideas. As always, we will have some great offers all summer long.
