The WLGT Essential Guide to BBQing at home this weekend

National BBQ Week

We may still be under lockdown, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy ourselves. This week is National BBQ Week, so the perfect opportunity to celebrate in the garden with our nearest & dearest. We’ve curated the best BBQ Food & Drink from Chester (and a little bit further), so sit back, relax and have a look through our selections …

Hickory’s Smokehouse 

We couldn’t create a guide about BBQing without giving our friends at Hickory’s Chester a special mention – seeing as they are the Super-Special Smokehouse Stars of lockdown. So many of us look forward to Fridays every week when the Curbside Menu is ready for collection, so they’re the perfect choice for your National BBQ Week celebrations in the garden this weekend.
