Always take the weather with you! Braving the rain for a Winter BBQ

When the majority of people hear the word barbecue, they tend to imagine a beautiful setting: the sun flowing down on them, drinks in hand and the smell of the grill in the background.

This of course is not often the case in Ireland (but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done!).

Braving the torrential rain and Storm Clodagh, recently a group of brave souls took our Weber Winter Warmer course at our Grill Academy.

Guided by Tim and Cormac, the group was guided through a vast variety of barbecuing techniques from learning about direct and indirect heat to ultimately learning about how easy it is to make everything on the grill.

On the menu for the day was an amazing organic, free-range Bronze turkey from Wicklow, hasselback potatoes, chocolate puddings, Brussel sprouts, flatbreads and even soup! Yes, soup!

Despite the obvious downpour, under the safety of our canopies our grill enthusiasts managed to rustle up some fabulous dishes:

Just goes to show that you can take to the barbecue during all sorts of weather and still have a great time.Warming hands on the BBQ

We look forward to hosting our next rooftop barbecue!
