BBQ Gifts - Get them while they're hot!
With lockdown lifting and being able to see friends and family in gardens and parks, our thoughts start turning to brighter Spring days and even into early Summer.
BBQs are being bought out of their winter covers and sparked up, apart from the hardened winter BBQers who have probably cooked their Christmas dinner on their all weather/permanent fixture BBQ!
Interestingly, there are many countries all over the world that have a bbq culture, including Korea, India, America, Australia, China and South Africa. The Argentinians even have a spcial word for a "Grill Master" which is a "Asador".
The origin of the BBQ is the Caribbean. The word BBQ stems from a Caribbean Indian tribe called the Taino who cook on a raised wooden grate called a barbacoa.
According to General Bbq Facts, as a result of the our lockdown BBQ and eating at home has become cemented as the UK’s No.1 summer home leisure activity. Three out of four homes now owning some type of BBQ grill. That's a lot of BBQing going on.
Another intersting fact from this website is that, what used to be a traditionally male dominated arena, almost a kin to a sport, BBQ’s have become more gender-neutral with women accounting for 49% of all BBQ cooks, they have slipped by 7% over the last three years to 51% in 2019.
We wonder what the percentage will be for griller cooking over the Summer of 2021?
Don't forget the 25th National BBQ Week 2021, which takes place during the week of 2nd to 11th July.
Be prepared for the UK's BBQ Week with one of our fab BBQ gifts - for whoever is in charge of the grill!
