Top tips from us!

Give yourself time to prep – just like cooking inside, you need plenty of time to prep your ingredients and make sure the BBQ is pre-heated to piping hot! 

Make use of the space! Side burners are another source of heat and come in very handy when cooking more than one item at a time. You can boil veggies, sear meat, or keep dishes hot using the side burner! 

Another underrated space within a barbecue are the burners directly below the rotisserie. Whilst the rotisserie meat is turning, succulent juices drip off. What better place to cook your veggies or roasties to add delicious flavours. Trust us, you don’t want these to go to waste!  

The warming rack allows you to keep items hot whilst the others are still cooking – make good use of this, there’s nothing worse than a cold Christmas dinner! 

A barbecue is essentially an oven, all but a better one! This cooking method is proven to be more efficient than a normal indoor oven, alongside creating more flavoursome dishes. We all know the pressure of cooking for a crowd on the big day, save space inside by cooking outside…it’s a no brainer for us!
