Memorial Day is nearly here – a day when Americans traditionally come together to remember the lives of those who died serving the country. Amid the celebration of life, it's a holiday that's also come to represent the start of summer; and what better way to bring in the sunny season than with a feast in the back yard?

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 crisis, Memorial Day celebrations are likely to look a little different this year – but that doesn't mean you can't tuck into some amazing home made food. These BBQ meat sticks are sure to go down a treat with your nearest and dearest, and all you'll need to make them is Mr. Q's Garlicky Sweet Marinade and some lemon lime soda. Ready for a burst of serious flavor?

Mr. Q's BBQ meat sticks

The perfect barbecue recipe to enjoy this Memorial Day weekend.



  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs or pork shoulder
  • 1/2 cup Mr. Q's Garlicky Sweet Grilling Marinade
  • Lemon lime soda


  1. Cut the chicken or pork into bite-size pieces. Place in a couple plastic containers and pour over Mr. Q's Garlicky Sweet Grilling Marinade. Leave to marinate for at least 3 hours (but it's best if you leave it overnight).
  2. Pinch the meat while using a twisting motion to secure it onto the skewers. Five pieces per skewer works best.
  3. Preheat the barbecue or grill to about 400 degrees. Place the skewers side by side on the grill.
  4. Cook for 10-15 minutes (brushing left over marinade at least 3 times per side) until cooked through and starting to char.
  5. For maximum flavor, take 3 parts Mr. Q’s Marinade and mix with 1 part lemon lime soda to be used as your brushing sauce.
  6. Serve immediately with your choice of side dishes.
