Go for the Grill!

Go for the Grill!

It’s a wrap, the 23rd National BBQ Week has finished for another year…

Our 23rd National BBQ Week has now finished and what a week it was! In fact we’ve been helping people become Better BBQ’ers since 1997 and although this year, the weather has been somewhat variable, we’ve still been able to directly engage with nearly quarter of a million consumers, sampling and demonstrating Gastro-grilling tips & advice across the country. The National BBQ RoadShow has also been wowing the crowds at both the London Foodie Festival in Syon Park and the Royal Bath & West Show down in Somerset.

Overall, it’s been a huge success, and we’d like to say a massive thank you to all those Barbi-fans who took part as well as to our BarbiMates and of course our brilliant Barbi sponsors, without whom this would not have been possible. So, a Big Barbi thank you to all and of course we’ll be back next year for a record-breaking 24th time!

But that’s not the end for this year as although the 23rd National BBQ Week, has closed, we’ll be continuing our BBQ news, tips, advice and recipes and of course our BBQ Baptas video upload competition on our sister nationalbbq.co.uk site!

But National BBQ Week will be back for a 24th time next year in just…

May 25th – May 31st, 2020

On November 1st we’ll be opening sponsorship opportunities in the 24th National BBQ Week 2020.

National BBQ Week – a potted history

We’ve come a long way from those dim, distant days of summer 1997 when National BBQ Week was first launched and the cry was “if it ain’t burnt, it ain’t barbi”. In fact, National BBQ Week has not only helped change all of our attitudes towards BBQ and summer eating, it’s also helped grow the BBQ market from just 9 million BBQ occasions back then to around 135 million this year and all indications are that they’ll be even more in 2020, when hopefully we’ll all be over Brexit!

It’s Tweet up to date!
