Treat mum this Mother’s Day in the fieriest of ways by presenting her with a BBQ mega feast with all her favourites.

Dad and the kids can get their grilling prowess on by creating a menu fit for a queen, taking the entertaining and meal preparation outside, where mum can sit, relax, sip a sparkling wine and soak up the barbecue aromas.

Samba, the experts in fire and barbecue, have all the tips and tricks to make Mother’s Day less about slippers and perfume and more about sizzle and steaks!

Creating the ultimate backyard barbecue picnic

Mother’s Day is all about getting mum spoiled so it’s time to create the ultimate indulgence outdoor area as she awaits her barbecue feast!

Think the comfiest of hammocks, armed with her favourite drink all the while being serenaded by her favourite tunes.

If you’re setting up on a grassed area, lay an oversized picnic rug, a low picnic table, some chairs or pillows for seating, flowers and tasty nibbles.

Your mum now is all set to enjoy the rest of the afternoon!

And now for the menu

While the sausage is always a go-to favourite for a weekend meal, Samba recommends a Mother’s Day barbecue menu warrants a more bespoke experience.

Think chilli garlic skewers beautifully seared on the hot coals or an eye fillet steak, grilled to mum’s perfection and accompanied by charcoaled broccolini and beans, topped with a salsa verdi.

For chicken lovers, perhaps a grilled stuffed chicken breast, filled with glorious mozzarella cheese, baby spinach and sundried tomatoes accompanied by grilled corn on the cob and rosemary infused sweet potato fries.

Delighting mum with dessert

It wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without presenting mum with an unforgettable and mouth-watering dessert – but it certainly doesn’t have to be complex. To keep up with the barbecue theme, consider making BBQ rum and caramel bananas in foil – with vanilla ice cream of course!

Kebabs can take on a whole new meaning with marshmallow and strawberry skewers, which are then dipped into melted chocolate.  Simply delicious.

Wishing all the mums out there a wonderful Mother’s Day from Samba!

  • We’re having a BBQ for Mothers Day. Looking at the watermelon in the pic reminds of deep fried watermelon I saw on tv the other day. Only in America


  • Yum! Dessert ill never say no to of course


  • Dessert all the way for me! I don’t expect gifts, but bake me some sweets and I’m happy.


  • This sounds fantastic. Yet my mothers day is thought about at 3pm on the saturday…


  • This sounds lovely but I’d be lucky if we were all even able to be together. Phone calls it will be.


  • Don’t think this is for me / my family, because # 4 of the 6 of us are vegetarian # 2 of my kids have additional needs and need around the clock supervision; I would have to run after them to keep them safe

    • And I’m actually very happy to get a bottle of perfume for Mother’s Day :)


  • I love the sentiment but think I’d still have to sort it myself ????


  • This sounds more like something for hubby and dad but thank you for the article and ideas I could use for father’s day.


  • It’s a bit cold here for BBQs…. I wouldn’t enjoy it.


  • Wow this is so simple but a lovely way to show mum that you care


  • This would be nice


  • I’d love to have a Mother’s Day BBQ. Hopefully the weather will be nice.


  • This sounds wonderful! I don’t enjoy going on on Mother’s Day as the restaurants are busy and hectic. Give me a BBQ or picnic anyday.


  • Aww this sounds lovely. Mothers Day is my favourite day of the year. My kids are amazing and they always spoil me all day. I just love all the hand made gifts and cuddles.
