  • The Perfect Summer Barbecue

    Summer is almost upon us, and national barbecue week has arrived. In great British tradition, many of us are sure to be out in the garden trying to get the barbecue going before the rain comes back.

    It's easy to get barbecues wrong – so much so that some people claim it's a British tradition. struggling with a lukewarm barbecue grill and wondering whether the burgers are finally cooked is hardly the stuff that great social events are made of. A few simple steps will help you put together the perfect barbecue this summer.

    The Perfect Summer Barbecue

    Get the Right Barbecue

    For the perfect summer barbecue you need to get, well, the perfect barbecue grill. For back garden barbecues, Poundstretcher have an ideal yet very affordable solution. The Kettle Style BBQ Grill is compact enough to be easily stored when not in use, yet offers a spacious grill with room for plenty of food. Kettle barbecues are a great choice because they offer a number of useful features over their more basic cousins. These include a removable lid and air vents, helping you better regulate temperatures for perfect cooking.

    Others prefer to hold barbecues outdoors in local parks, woodlands or other spots of natural beauty. For these sorts of occasions, Poundstretcher sell a compact and lightweight portable barbecue. It folds down to a handy backpack-ready size when you want to carry it, then unfolds into a fully functioning charcoal barbecue grill.

    Useful Utensils

    Like so many of life's challenges, staging the perfect summer barbecue requires the right tools for the job. Utensils may seem like a minor detail, but they actually play a crucial role in making the barbecue run smoothly. If you lack a good spatula or pair of tongs, for example, you may find you struggle with the simple task of flipping your food without it disappearing sideways through the gaps in the grill. A good, sturdy cooking fork, meanwhile, is useful for more than just spearing sausages and picking them onto plates. It can help you probe right into the centre of your bangers and burgers, making sure they are cooked through and will give your guests pleasure instead of food poisoning.

    If you don't have a good kit of specialist barbecue utensils, then you might want to add some to your Poundstretcher cart alongside your chosen barbeque. You have a choice of a basic, affordable yet functional set of value barbecue tools, or a higher-quality deluxe selection. There are also some useful specialist tools on offer such as a broiler for quick, easy flipping. While you're at it, you might also want to pick up some wooden or metal skewers, which make for a nice way to serve vegetables, diced meat or even marshmallows ready for toasting over the still-glowing barbecue once the main dishes have all been happily eaten up.
