Barbecue Time is a Time For Fun and Laughter With Friends and Family
Don't you just love a barbecue? That feeling of being able to enjoy the great outdoors, whilst preparing and then eating lovely food! Barbecue time is a time for fun and laughter with friends and family. As soon as the sun comes out we in the UK tend to make the most of it and for lots of us the sun rays translate into BBQ weather! We ring round friends and family and start preparing food and drinks for their arrival. All the time hoping that the rays see us through the barbecue! Outdoor Barbecues are great fun and an apt treat after a hectic week. Everyone can be involved, from preparing food to be grilled on the barbecue, to setting the table and making drinks and prepping salads to go with those gorgeous barbecued selections. There are various types of BBQs to choose from including charcoal barbecues (as the name suggests, uses charcoal to heat and power the grill), gas barbecues (uses gas) for a more monitored and controlled cooking process. The on going debate where Barbecues are concerned is 'Gas or Charcoal?' Charcoal grillers take a certain pride in their ability to get the fire started and tend to it properly while they cook. Gas grillers, on the other hand, like having a perfect fire at the push of a button and appreciate the precision temperature adjustments gas grills can provide. Some charcoal grillers will argue that there is a more authentic, delicious BBQ flavour when cooking on charcoal but taste tests have shown that there is no flavour difference whether using charcoal or gas. So really it's down to preference of grilling styles, the slow easy wood smoking of charcoal, or the instant, controlled heat of gas. Either way, sit back and enjoy the fun-filled, magical day barbecues seem to be. ....And if the sun doesn't hold out you can always get your garden parasol out and continue the BBQ under-cover!
