The smokiness of Timbuktu makes it in my opinion, the perfect scent to wear when cooking outdoors on a grill or barbeque. The general 'outdoorsy' Timbuktu vibe makes it my choice this summer. What other fragrances would also be good cook out scents?
Smoky stuff that could fit include its companion Dzongka, L'Air du Desert Marocain, some leathers (like Rien or the non-smoky but animalic Dzing), and phenolic powerhouses like Lonestar memories or Patchouli 24 by Le Labo (the latter two may make you think that you've charred the meat way past the point of edibility).
+1 Lonestar Memories...among other things, it sort of reminds me of the smell of a cooling grill with charred food residue still on it.
I'll also add Bang!...the dry pepperiness and wood bring to mind parched summer days.

Encre Noire, or Sycomore if they're making steak.

"Until you practice surrender, the spiritual dimension is something you read about, talk about, get excited about, write books about, think about, believe in — or don’t, as the case may be. It makes no difference. Not until you surrender does it become a living reality in your life."

Encre Noire or Wazamba.
BBQ/spring/summer and the outdoors...............with a drink in hand?
tommy bahama comes to mind, even though the brand was concocted in the U.S. Northwest all I think of when I walk into a T.B. store is Key West, Jimmy Buffet and Margaritaville!

No, no, no, none of them.
For me nothing goes better with barbecue than A1
