National BBQ Week 2019

National BBQ Week 2019

National BBQ Week – The round up!

As many of you will have seen on our social media and in store we really hit the ground running with National BBQ Week 2019, as avid fans of eating al fresco we could hardly resist.

Our Garden Furniture teams at Great Shelford and Horningsea are so passionate about barbecuing, demonstrating just what a Weber gas or charcoal BBQ can do, not to mention the new Traeger Smoker. Proving just how straight forward cooking outdoors can be, that there’s an accessory for every dish idea and how mouth-wateringly tender meals can be with that unmistakeable smokey flavour you can only achieve with a barbecue.

So for every day of National BBQ Week our Great Shelford store served up different selection of delicious samples. Here’s our quick recap on the recipes that satisfied straight off the grill:

Monday: Patagonia Hot Dogs
Monday kicked off the week with fresh salsa-like flavours of minced herbs, red onions and tomatoes topping the Patagonia hot dogs with a cooling avocado mayo. A real crowd pleaser, ideal for a garden party as they couldn’t be easier to make whilst raising the bar – you’ll never want a plain hot dog again!

Tuesday: Potatoes with Bacon & Onion
Tuesday was a sides special; new potato salad with bacon and onions. Simply just skewer the diced potatoes and leave on the grill until cooked through, make sure to seasoning with herbs, whilst the bacon and onions cook together on the heat in a tray. Combine once cooked for a delicious flavour combination you’ll want to make again and again!

Wednesday: Sweet & Sticky Chicken Wings
Wednesday saw plenty of sticky fingers after we grilled up hot, sweet and sticky chicken wings, just the mouth sized bites to keep hunger at bay, making them just the morsel to serve as starters.

Thursday: Sweet Pizzas
For those with a sweet tooth, Thursday was a treat from our FireBox Pizza Ovens! Make your own sweet pizzas were on the menu, allowing those who were visiting our BBQ station to create the base for the plain tortilla wrap in either mashed banana or Nutella to then be sprinkled with toppings of their choosing; chocolate chips, marshmallows and fresh fruits.

Friday: Chicken & Vegetable Skewers
We finished the working week with the barbecue staple that never fails to disappoint, chicken and veg skewers, or a herby veg medley for vegetarians.

Finally as National BBQ Week draws to a close, our Garden Furniture team treated those who visited their barbecue station to a Father’s Day Special, filled with ideas and inspiration for some home grilling Father’s will love, such as mixed grill, nachos and smoked potatoes.

BBQ at Scotsdales Horningsea

Horningsea Sunflower café teamed up with their Garden Furniture department to serve juicy burgers as well as daily specials like delicious roast vegetables – an effortless dish to create on the barbecue with the GBS Dutch Oven and having the lid on keeps the moisture in, cooking the vegetables to perfection!

Fathers Day BBQ at Great Shelford

If you enjoyed those smokey barbecue flavours then make sure you don’t miss our Father’s Day Family BBQ at our Great Shelford Sunflower Café on June 16th 2019. Treat the Dad in your family to lunch in the sun as you relax in our outdoor seating area among the plants, and as an extra treat we’ll be introducing our Scotsdales’ cocktail bar, serving refreshing, ice-cold gin cocktails.
