It finally appears like summer is
here. After the mini heat wave we
experienced in early June the weather looked to have typically reverted to the
stereotypical British summer, with unsettled cooler weather (the golfers at The
Open Championship last week even had to wear woolly hats and gloves).
But now, as we approach the
latter half of July it looks like we might have some sunny weather after all,
at least for a short while. So, now is
the time to fling those curtains open wide, unlock the French doors, get the
garden furniture back out and fire up the BBQ.
Now, there has been a long
standing debate amongst barbeque aficionados as to which is best when it comes
to what type of BBQ to use – should it be gas or coals, open or kettle
drum. This is something that in the end
just comes down to personal preference, but some people have taken the humble
BBQ beyond those simple conventions and produced something of wonder, and not a
little envy if we’re being honest.
Below we have collated a few of
the more elegant, outrageous and downright lavish examples of BBQ’s and outside
eating areas we could find images of on the internet. For us mere mortals making do with a cheap

become inspired to create our own little corner of BBQ heaven in our own
