Top Tips from Orchard Park for the Perfect BBQ
To celebrate National BBQ Week 2017 (29th May – 4th June) we will have special offers on our range of Weber BBQs and accessories as well as in Lagan Farm Shop butchery. To kick off BBQ season we have put together a guide on how to create the perfect BBQ!
Get the Right BBQ
This may seem like an obvious statement but having the right tools for the job is essential, which also applies to barbequing! The debate over which is best, gas or charcoal, is a fierce one but with the help from Weber we hope we can help you decide.
It is recommended that you choose a BBQ which is best suited to your needs. Charcoal BBQs add to the excitement and anticipation; setting out the coals, lighting them and then waiting until they are up to the perfect cooking temperature is what makes a perfect BBQ for some. Others prefer the convenience and spontaneity of a gas BBQ as they offer the flexibility to just ‘fire it up’ whenever you like and start cooking almost immediately, adjusting the temperature with simply a twist of a dial.
Here at Orchard Park we have a great range of Weber BBQs (along with accessories) and are able to offer advice to help you choose the right BBQ for you.
Make Your Own Burgers
Our Lagan Farm Shop butchers have been busy making burgers, sausages (available gluten free), rump steak kebabs and chicken skewers as well as marinated sticky BBQ ribs all ready for the grill! There is no doubt about it, homemade burgers are simply better! If you would like to give making your own a go, we have grass fed beef and lamb mince available from our own farm next door. There are so many different flavour combinations to choose from achievable by simply adding different seasonings or fresh herbs. Lamb burgers with freshly grown and picked mint from the garden and sweet chilli beef burgers are always a firm favourite. Lagan Farm Shop also has a selection of chutneys, pickles, seasonings and sauces.
BBQs Aren’t Just Good For Meat
Contrary to popular belief BBQs aren’t just for the meat-eaters among us and can be used to create a variety of hearty vegetarian meals. Pizzas, pasta dishes, flat breads and even cakes can all be cooked and baked on the BBQ by using some of the Weber accessories.
