From tempting meats to delicious sides, we have everything you need to feed a crowd! So get inviting…. There are hotdogs to be eaten and Pimms to be drunk!

Starting with the BBQ classic, burgers, here are our top tips for making the best burger, ever! (thanks for the tips TGI Fridays)

  1. What’s the secret ingredient to a great BBQ burger? Bovril. Lightly brush the burgers with some Bovril before cooking. It adds an extra taste element called ‘umami’ – the fifth taste after salt, sweet, sour and bitter. It really makes a difference.
  2. Want to make your burgers from scratch? Use a mixture of brisket and braising steak – this will create great flavours and texture. Don’t pack the burgers too tightly – this will keep the meat tender.

  3. Making cheeseburgers? Add the cheese to the burger while the burger is cooking – it will melt into the patty and intensify the flavour. Yum!

  4. Make your own burger relish. Mix 200ml of mayonnaise, 75ml ketchup, 50ml American Mustard, and 50g chopped gherkins. Homemade deliciousness.

  5. Once cooked, add a pinch of salt to the meat – it will bring the natural flavours to life.
