    Cook's tips

    Serve the burgers with salad and a selection of barbecue sauces and relishes. Try Jardine's Chicken 'N Ribs or Wild Harvest's Native Plum Sauce to add a real tang to your burgers, ribs or chicken. Wash work surfaces, chopping boards, utensils and hands thoroughly after handling raw meat. Take extra care when barbecuing meat and if possible cook it in the oven. Once cooked, place immediately on the barbecue to finish it off.
