How to have the perfect BBQ

It’s now that perfect time of year; the time between Spring and Summer where the days are longer and warmer meaning we can open our doors to make the most of our outdoor spaces. It is also a great excuse to do everyone’s favourite thing; have a BBQ. Therefore, we thought we would put a few tips together to help you create the perfect BBQ experience.

Garden

Before you begin your BBQ preparation, it is always good to consider where your BBQ will take place, whether this be your garden or patio area and to ensure this is in good condition. Having a tidy outdoor area will make a BBQ much more pleasant, so spending an hour sweeping leaves away or cutting the lawn will be worth your while, especially if you have invited guests.

Food

Obviously, everyone is at a BBQ for the food. Although the number of guests could influence the complexity of the menu, keeping it simple is usually better. As BBQs tend to last longer than an average meal, it is always a good idea to have plenty of snacks and drinks. Serving salads and fresh side dishes along with the BBQ are also always a popular choice on a warm day and help to create a Mediterranean dining feel. Buffet type foods are also a great option for sharing and are easy to eat without making too much mess.

Outdoor Furniture

Getting the decor and furniture right is key in making your BBQ comfortable and enjoyable for everyone. Having enough outdoor seating is important and if space is an issue, multi-functional outdoor furniture is ideal, such as tables which double up as storage. As we all know, the British weather is also extremely unpredictable so having a parasol as well as an outdoor heater, for when the evening gets cooler, could be beneficial. Outdoor lighting or fairy lights could also add a nice touch if your BBQ continues late into the night.

Entertainment

Whether your BBQ is just for the family or a big social event, entertainment is also key. This doesn’t require anything extravagant, however just having music playing in the background can be very relaxing. Additionally, if you have a sports table or net, such as a ping pong table, it will be a great opportunity to set this up. If sports are not your thing, board games and card games are always a popular choice and a great way to bring people of all ages together.
