This week we're off to Cyprus for the next leg of our #aroundtheworldin80bbqs journey.

We've adapted a Cypriot favorite using one of our favourite BBQ rubs - the Peppery rub from Spicentice.

This easy dish working brilliantly as a side, in a salad or even instead of a patty as a vegetarian burger.

Full of flavour and so easy.



  • Halloumi
  • Spice Rub
  • Rapeseed Oil


You can create this dish using any Weber BBQ; charcoal or gas.

We've used the following:



  • Slice halloumi into pieces of even size and thickness
  • Drizzle with an oil of your choosing with a high smoke point - we've used rapeseed oil.
  • Coat in a rub or spice mix of your choice, we recommend the peppery rub from spicentice which was delicious.


  • Set up your Weber BBQ for direct grilling at a medium heat.
  • Using Weber's non-stick spray give the bbq grates a good coating; this will ensure that you still achieve excellent searing but helps prevent food from sticking the cooking grates and falling apart when flipped.
  • Add the halloumi slices and close the lid for 1-2 minutes.
  • Turn over and cooking for a further minutes or do - until cooked to your liking.


This is such a versatile little dish that can be easily adapted for a myriad of meals, here are some ideas:

  • Slice into strips and serve with a dip.
  • Serve simply as a side dish at your next backyard BBQ get together.
  • Roughly chop and work into a salad
  • Use instead of a burger patty in a bun, great as a vegetarian alternative.
