UK BBQ facts and figures

UK BBQ facts and figures

BBQs are a beloved pastime in the UK, with millions of Brits firing up the grill every year to cook up a storm. At Beds BBQ Centre, we're passionate about all things BBQ, and we've gathered some fascinating facts and figures that show just how popular outdoor cooking is in the UK.

Did you know, for example, that 9 out of 10 British households own a BBQ? That's right, according to a survey by Sainsbury's, 90% of UK households have a BBQ, making it one of the most popular outdoor activities in the country.

Another interesting fact is that the most popular day for BBQs in the UK is Bank Holiday Monday. This is according to a survey by Mintel, which found that 30% of UK consumers had a BBQ on Bank Holiday Monday, compared to just 8% on a typical weekday.

When it comes to the type of food we cook on our BBQs, burgers and sausages are still the firm favourites, with 55% of UK consumers grilling them up at least once a month. But there's also been a rise in popularity for more exotic dishes, such as kebabs and seafood.

And it's not just in the summer months that we love to BBQ. According to a survey by Weber, 58% of UK consumers use their BBQs all year round, proving that outdoor cooking is no longer just a seasonal activity.

In terms of BBQ spending, the UK market is worth an estimated £7 billion, with more and more consumers investing in high-quality equipment and accessories to enhance their outdoor cooking experience. At Beds BBQ Centre, we've seen a rise in demand for premium BBQs, such as Kamado-style grills, which offer superior heat retention and versatility.

So, whether you're a seasoned BBQ pro or a first-time griller, there's no denying that outdoor cooking is a beloved tradition in the UK. And with the right equipment and a little bit of practice, you too can join the millions of Brits who are passionate about BBQs.
