If you don’t have a garden in Dubai or Abu Dhabi, you might be missing your barbecues, brais and barbies. If you’ve got a craving for melt-in-the-mouth meat and charred corn, fresh from the grill, we know just where you can get your fix.

A special BBQ menu, boasting dishes with succulent meat such as short ribs, lamb, salmon, tacos, chicken, and cauliflower (vegetarian), has just launched at selected Rotana hotels across the UAE. The high-quality meat is provided by renowned UAE butcher Mattar Farms.

Dishes include pulled brisket tacos with fire-roasted pineapple and chili salsa or slow-smoked barbecue chicken with charred Mexican corn, lime, parmesan and chipotle mayo. Another one is the Jack and hickory smoked short rib served with crispy Mac ‘n’ cheese. Match dishes with specially-curated cocktails using a famous whisky brand.

Customers who visit a Rotana hotel and order an item from the BBQ menu will be in with a chance to win an American chopper motorbike. Customers can enter their details online for a chance to win, once a purchase has been made from the Smoke and Flames menu.

The special BBQ menu will be available to diners in Dubai at JB’s at Amwaj Rotana and Morgan’s at Al Bandar Rotana Dubai. It will also be available in Abu Dhabi at Garden by Bayview and Rodeo Grill at Beach Rotana, Cooper’s at Park Rotana, and Hamilton’s at Saadiyat Rotana Resort & Villas.

This finger-licking, limited-time BBQ menu has launched as part of the Rotana hotels groups ongoing “Smoke and Flames” campaign. This has invited keen amateur barbecuers in the UAE to compete to be crowned Rotana’s ultimate UAE amateur BBQ master.

After a round of live cooking final and semi-finals, the champion is set to scoop a prize of Dhs10,000 and a Weber grill, as well as having their recipe listed on Rotana’s F&B participating outlets’ menus for a period of one year and much more. There are also prizes for the first, second and third runners up.

Whilst it’s too late for you to enter the competition (entry closed on March 1) you can keep up to date with it here.
