Brilliant BBQ

Nothing beats the aroma of something sizzling and succulent on the grill, mellow tunes playing in the background, and a cold drink in hand. We’ve cooked up a three-step guide just for you.

1 – Prep. The saying goes, “He who is best prepared can best serve his moment of inspiration.” We don’t think it is about a BBQ, but the concept applies! If you need a new BBQ, visit Argos! We suggest stocking up at Sainsbury’s. Find out if you are catering to any fish eaters, vegetarians, or vegans. Nowadays, there are some fantastic non-meat BBQ recipes.

2 – Theme. Set out the general theme and atmosphere that you’re aiming for. For example, are you looking to create a casual ‘Aussie Style’ barbie or a chic BBQ soirée? New Look or Bonmarche might have the perfect outfit.

3 – Sip. While you can ask guests to bring a bottle, it’s a good idea to offer some refreshments to complement your menu and create the right atmosphere. Pimm’s and lemonade or a pre-mixed, non-alcoholic fruit punch go a long way and cater for everyone too.

Top Tip: If you have spare ice cubes, place an ice cube in the centre of your burger patty and your burgers will be cooked through without being dry!
