The Ultimate BBQ Toolkit


Time to dust the cobwebs off that BBQ, dig out the deckchairs and welcome the Great British Summertime (despite the dodgy weather). We don’t know about you but we can’t wait to celebrate it. From a solar-powered neon pink flamingo lamp to the top-of-the-range appliances, we’ve got your party covered with our top picks for the ultimate BBQ.

The Centrepiece:

You may feel pressure to own the fanciest BBQ in the neighbourhood, but this year, why not go for something a little out of the ordinary?

First up we have a quirky offering from Firebox. The sturdier alternative to your standard run-of-the-mill disposable BBQ, the BBQ bucket is perfect for impromptu parties in smaller gardens.

Next up is this mid-range red number from Landmann Rexon, a real looker. Why go for black when you can have striking red?

Finally, we have the investment piece, the all singing, all dancing #goals BBQ from Blooma, one to last you a lifetime…or at least a long way into the 10-year supplier guarantee.

The Essential Utensils

Next up on the BBQ toolkit – the right utensils are essential for a fail-safe barbeque.

On a budget? No problem, this Blooma three piece set, comes in at a charmingly low £5.00. Or why not take your BBQ game up a notch with this personalised meat tenderiser from ‘Not on the High Street’, fit for the ultimate BBQ King or Queen.

But hang on a minute…why have three tools, when you can have it all in one? This BBQ multi tool from Firebox has all utensil bases covered.  Perfect!

Get Lit

You’ve got the food, the BBQ’s on the go and now it’s important to set the ambience with some outdoor lighting. These crackle glass solar lights are perfect for adding some colour to your garden pathways on a budget for only £14.99.

Out to impress with your outdoor lighting offerings this year? Why not bring the Tropicana vibes to your back garden? After all, what better conversation starter is there than a kitsch solar-powered pink flamingo? Or maybe you want to bring the magic of Morocco to your back garden with these beautiful set of three lanterns. Gorgeous!

Turn Up the Volume

What’s a party without music? It’s time to get the feel-good tunes on, set the party vibes and maybe have a little dance after a few cocktails.

Just make sure to keep things wireless to avoid any beer-fuelled wire tripping accidents. At £59.99, this Sony SRS-XB10 Portable Wireless speaker is perfect for a party-on-the-go.
