Well the 20th National BBQ Week has drawn to a close and with it some awful weather, at the beginning of the week, although, luckily it all brightened up in the last couple of days with some bright, and hot sunshine! We’ve also had more than our fair share of brilliant Barbi experiences, whether with Gorilla and our Barbi Crew on the Guerrilla Grilling tour of London, our very own video BBQ Baptas competition or any one of the tens of thousands of BBQ’s that were held across the UK in celebration our 20th BBQ anniversary.
So all in in all and aside from the weather for the first half of the Week, we’ve really enjoyed it and by all accounts so have you! But just because the Week has finished, it doesn’t mean that you’ve got to put the Barbi back in the shed; No there’s a whole summer of sport out there just waiting round the corner with the Euro’s kicking off in a few days’ time and as well as the sport, we’ve got the EU Referendum, now if that isn’t a good excuse for a Barbi, we don’t know what is!
Yes we’ve come a long way from those dim, dark days of 1997, when the cry was “if it ain’t burnt, it ain’t barbi”, in fact National BBQ Week has not only helped change all of our attitudes towards BBQ and summer eating, but has also helped grow the BBQ market from just 9 million BBQ occasions back then to over 130 million last year and all the indications are that they’ll be even more this year!
So although National BBQ Week has finished you can still find loads of practical Barbi Tips & Advice and delicious recipes right here, in fact everything you could ever want to know about BBQ! So let’s all chill n’grill throughout the summer.
Our BBQ Batas competition has now closed, so a really big thank you to all of those who entered. We will be announcing the winners shortly – watch this space!
Our Guerrilla Grilling tour of London has now finished, we’d like to thank all of those who took part and if you missed out, don’t worry we’ll be back next year, same time, same place.
but you can still find out everything you need to know about BBQ right here!
