2012 It was Sunny – So We Barbi'ed!
Last year’s 16th National BBQ Week started on Monday 28th May 2012 and very conveniently ran immediately before the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations so there was a real chance for everyone to brush up on BBQ skills before that historic occasion.
Whilst both HRH’s Philip & Charles are known for being somewhat of BBQ buffs, we're not sure if they did actually dust down their Barbi’s, roll up their sleeves and really celebrate by going for the grill with the odd burger or two, but millions did!
There were over 3 million BBQ’s held during National BBQ Week and of course as the weather was fine for a while afterwards, there were even more! Certainly we all wanted to improve our grill skills ahead of the even bigger Diamond Jubilee Week starting June 4th. And yes the Diamond Jubilee Week of celebrations beat even last year’s Royal Wedding to become the biggest BBQ celebration of all time with over 12 million BBQ’s being held!
So as we ‘confidently’ say–It’s Sunny – So Barbi.
