The latest BBQ trends & tips for summer 2016

Over the last decade in the UK the average number of BBQ’s held per family each summer has risen dramatically from around 2.5 per year to 10. That’s pretty impressive considering our climate. Plus it clearly shows we Brits have embraced BBQ culture. And whilst we’re still playing catch up with our American cousins, a culture of grilling is most definitely on the rise in the UK. There’s no denying, that on both sides of the Atlantic, BBQ food incites real passion, and in the US at least, some fierce competition. And much like the garden furniture industry, consumer demand is driving product innovation and development. A burgeoning street food scene here in the UK is also driving us to try and recreate our favourite eats at home on the grill, to not be afraid to try new styles of cooking.
