Winter doesn’t have to be the end of BBQ season

yumkWinter may be well and truly on its way, but that doesn’t mean that we have to give up all of our summer fun. The cold winter nights may send a lot of people racing to their central heating, but if you want to throw a party that will be remembered for a long time to come, it could be time to enjoy a little known craze which is called a winter barbeque. Everyone enjoys entertaining their closest friends and family. Hosting a gathering with a portable gas BBQ as the centrepiece will certainly go down well.

There are also many practical benefits to using a portable BBQ during the winter. When a host has to cook for a lot of guests it doesn’t take much time for the kitchen to get crowded. It can sometimes be a real struggle to fit everything into the oven but there doesn’t have to be this problem when one has access to a gas barbecue. Send out a couple of people to grill some of the meat or vegetables in the garden so that kitchen space can be utilised best inside. It is amazing at how much people want to get involved in helping a winter BBQ run smoothly and there won’t be any shortage of helping hands willing to get stuck in outdoors.

However, there are a few common sense rules to follow when holding a winter barbecue. First of all, make sure that everybody wraps up warm! Nobody wants to fall ill with a cold or pneumonia so it may be a good idea to have a few spare hats and scarfs at the ready if anybody is in need of an extra layer. Fire will still burn even when it is cold. Children should be encouraged to stay away from the grill so that there are no unwanted accidents. Check that there is enough gas left before beginning the grilling as the last thing that you want is to run out of gas and be left with inedible half raw meat.

Whether it be a winter or summer BBQ, there is usually one person who takes charge of the grilling. Make sure that their scarf is safely tucked into their jacket so that they do not accidentally catch fire on the grill. A good soundtrack is always a popular decision. Dance the day away in a winter wonderland with some delicious food to help keep up spirits. If it is really cold, people can always nip inside for warmth!

When the air is cold and crisp, cooking outside on a portable barbecue can help people to reconnect with their heritage. Our ancestors didn’t often have the luxury of cooking their food indoors, so they had to survive by cooking out in the wild instead. Fortunately, there is no need to rely on temperamental fires and weather conditions nowadays. Simply switch on the gas and get ready to cook with a bbq which is itching to be used all year round.
