Scotsdales Celebrates Spring in Style with our American themed BBQ demonstration

Spring is officially in the air and we wanted to celebrate by providing our customers with a taste of American BBQ. We set up our stand by the entrance of our Great Shelford store during the first weekend of March, providing over 300 people with food cooked using the Weber American BBQ recipe book.

What we cooked?

For those lucky enough to have joined us, we cooked a 10oz handmade beef burger (using local ingredients) which we smoked on the Traeger Bronson with a Hickory smoked pellet. We also cooked locally sourced sausages on the Weber Mastertouch BBQ. Many of our customers were also keen to try our range of Jack Daniels sauces which we sell in our food hall. To make sure we catered for all food requirements, we smoked a vegetable kebab skewer and halloumi fries on the Traeger Bronson.
