Ultimate Barbeque 101: Tips, Recipes & Produce Deliveries

Barbeque tips

Whether you’re a self-confessed grill master or looking to invest in your first barbeque set-up, our guide will provide you with all the advice you’ll need. We cover everything from finding the right barbecue for your outdoor space to our favourite recipe ideas, as well as where to find quality meat and seafood during lockdown.


The barbeque for you

Choosing a quality barbecue brand (such as Weber), storing it correctly over winter, and cleaning it regularly are all the ingredients you need for a barbecue that will last a lifetime – but other questions remain. What size should your barbecue be? What type of fire source should you use? And what about all those added extras? Let’s unpack them here.


Unless you’re planning on hosting patio parties every weekend, you don’t need to go for the biggest option out there, but a large grill does allow for more meat to be cooked at the same time and can even leave space for some fire-grilled sides. We love the Weber Master-Touch which is large enough for family cooking and is very easy to clean.

That said, a smaller barbecue gives you the option of taking it with you on trips when we’re out of lockdown, whether they are weekends away, days spent outdoors, or camping. The compact Weber Smokey Joe is perfect for inner-city balconies or taking on trips.

Barbeque deliveries

Finding your produce during lockdown

While delivery slots with major supermarkets are becoming easier to secure, many of our members are still relying on artisan suppliers and larger wholesale companies to deliver fresh produce to their door.

Forman & Field have lots of excellent meat, fish and sides on offer. The barbecue packs from Turner & George are also proving particularly popular and the good-value mackerel from The Cornish Fishmongers is excellent.
