With the weather getting milder and the sun coming out, spring and summer are fast approaching. Now is the best time to start preparing your garden for your first BBQ of the year. Here are some tips to help you get ready for this event.

Getting the BBQ ready

Most people find it difficult to decide between charcoal or gas BBQ’s but we can definitely help you with that. It is time to take the BBQ out of the shed and with St. Patrick’s day around the corner this is the perfect time. There are many differences between the charcoal and the gas BBQ but it all comes down to personal preference.

Shopping list

Burgers, sausages, hot dog rolls and salads are some of the foods that can be included in this BBQ. It is also important to consider some vegetarian options. Refreshments and alcoholic beverages also have to be served at your BBQ as well as disposable cups, plates and takeaway plates for your guests.

BBQ tools

The right utensils need to be used on the BBQ such as long handed utensils to keep away from the hot BBQ and protect your hands from burning and steaming while cooking. Tools such as a long handed spatula, tongs and forks. You will also need a knife to cut the meal and a marinade brush.

Garden furniture and outdoor heating

It is time to uncover the garden furniture and bring out blankets for your guests for later on in the evening. Other extras such as parasols and lazy Susan’s can be added. Music Although the sun is out the evenings are still quite chilly and being in Ireland we all know how unpredictable our weather can be.
