barbeque rosemary

Barbecue Rosemary is the perfect gift for your grill-loving Dad. Barbecue Rosemary is known for its straight stems that make for excellent barbecue skewers. A popular herb, this plant provides great flavor and a delicious aroma from the plant’s natural oils.

Rosemary is a woody herb with a full flavor. It holds up well under extreme heat and prolonged cooking times, making it a great choice for adding to braises and stews. The sturdy stems make it an even better choice for grilling.

Rosemary is rich in folate, vitamins, and minerals. It is also full of antioxidant-rich properties and anti-inflammatory compounds which help to improve blood circulation of the body and boost the immune system.


When prepping your Barbecue Rosemary for cooking, rinse your stems under cold water, gently rubbing away any leftover soil or debris from your garden. Pat the herb dry before using.

Available in nice, 6 inch containers, Barbecue Rosemary should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and it will not tolerate standing water.

Recipes with Barbecue Rosemary

Pair your Barbecue Rosemary plant with tasty recipes to help Dad take his BBQ to the next level! Skip the skewers and use sprigs of Rosemary for grilling flavorful chicken or fresh steak kabobs. Try Baja-Style Rosemary Chicken Skewers with Fresh Barbecue Rosemary or Rosemary Steak Skewers with Balsamic Glaze & Fresh Barbecue Rosemary.
