Not-so British BBQ

The ‘Great British BBQ Study’ reveals that millions of Brits are increasingly turning to more exotic dishes like succulent steaks, marinated lamb, grilled halloumi and fancy salads to liven up their outdoor feasts and impress family and friends.

The study shows that tastes have changed from 5 years ago when more than half would have opted for traditional sausages, sauces and salads. 60% of us are now choosing more impressive cuts of meat, seasoned steaks and herbed sausages in order to satisfy our palates.

However a quarter say they have experienced a BBQ disaster, and 20% saying the main cause of BBQ stress is worrying about poisoning guests with undercooked meat.

Also, nearly a quarter (23%) of men admit to being competitive when it comes to BBQing. A whopping 44% of men say that a BBQ is a “man’s domain”. 16% of men say that someone offering to ‘help’ with your BBQ is trying to ‘steal your thunder’.
