Live life to the full – whatever the weather!

Written by: Carol Cooling | Sunday 1st November 2015

Everyone loves a summer barbecue, but did you know you can cook a Christmas turkey on your barbecue? Our friend Tony has been doing just that for 7 years now and he says he’d never go back to spending the morning in the kitchen when it’s so much more fun outside! A good quality modern barbecue, such as a Weber, are built to last and can withstand pretty much anything the Great British Winter has to throw at it, so go on, give it a try. Barbecue in the winter! Barbecue in rain and snow! Barbecue anytime!

Obviously, wind can cause problems, so to maintain the required temperature inside the barbecue, place it in a sheltered spot – but not inside! To enjoy your charcoal barbecue in the winter all you’ll need is a few more briquettes to keep the temperature at its optimum. Remember to store the briquettes somewhere dry and buy a good stock so you can indulge yourself whenever the mood takes you.

Light your barbecue well in advance. In colder weather the briquettes take slightly longer to heat up. Whether you’re using charcoal or cooking on gas, remember to open all the vents fully, put in your food, close the lid and off you go. All you need to do now is an extra jumper to keep yourself warm and bingo! Barbecues have never been this much fun!
