The scent of smoke, the sizzle of burgers hitting the grill and the sight of friends and family soaking up the sun, can only mean one thing … the arrival of summer!
This summer marks the first post-pandemic summer since Covid-19 hit, back in 2020 and we are all ready to socialise and entertain friends and family and celebrate the warmer weather and lighter evenings.
Whether you’re planning a grand feast or a more simple affair, barbeques are great for bringing people together, encouraging convocation and collaborative cooking efforts.
Classic burgers or smoked brisket? Spicy salsa or Mexican slaw? Korean heat or American slow-smoking? Barbecues offer the opportunity to experiment with new ideas and concepts and as there is no written rule that says BBQ’s must be burgers and hot dogs, why not try your hand at some new world flavours.
As people’s palates and dietary needs/requests change, so does the expectation from the barbeque grill itself. In recent years, Barbeques have become more of a global melting pot featuring new flavours and cooking methods from all around the world.
