Summer does funny things to people; those sparkling rays of sunshine cast a spell over our entire nation and as we slap on the sun cream and bring out the hats, thoughts turn to that wonderful British Summer experience called outdoor dining (or al fresco dining if you prefer something sounding a little more emotive).
Nothing beats the Great British BBQ, the trimmed lawn or freshly decked garden that plays centre stage to your culinary masterpieces. Whether you're a meat eater or vegetarian we can all agree on one thing, BBQ food is the best tasting food ever!
So whether you like to do a bit of barbecuing in the garden, have a bbq at the beach, or take a bbq with you on a camping adventure, we have you covered this Summer. For here at Cuckooland we are masters of the humble barbecue with a catalogue of BBQ’s so amazing they will knock you’re socks off. Not content with a simple portable variety that will end up rusting away come winter, we only stock unique award winning BBQ’s that are built to last.
Our range of BBQ’s includes the multi award winning, not to mention hugely popular, Lotus Grill range which along with it’s revolutionary design will have you cooking up a storm in less than four minutes. We also have the artsy Pod Kettle BBQ which will turn your garden into the coolest area for outdoor dining. Finally, let’s not forget our stunning range of table top BBQ’s for that extra social barbeque experience or when space is limited. These super easy to operate table top delights are also perfect for balcony dining in the city.
We believe that unique style should feature in all aspects of living and that’s why our entire range of barbecues come in a quirky range of colours. Just imagine cooking up the most amazing feast on a BBQ in your absolute favourite colour (its the little things in life!) - you won’t get a cooler outdoor dining experience. So make this year the year you become the Master of alfresco dining with one of our spectacular BBQ’s.
Anyone with an ounce of cooking prowess has had a bash at the perfect BBQ. Whilst it’s not too difficult to get a grill fired up, there’s certainly an art to it – deliver a singed sausage to a guest, and you'll never live it down, certainly not in the eyes of the barbecue gods!
To get all wannabe BBQ maestros sizzling in perfect cohesion and harmony, Cuckooland is proud to offer barbeque grill sets that make the whole process as easy and entertaining as possible. Our helpful guides to this sort of thing, including wonderful beer-based recipe tips, will give you some food for thought. We’d also like to offer up some advise and answer some common queries and questions about BBQ use and maintenance:
Ideally, after every cook, once it has cooled down. Our popular Lotus BBQ range can be dismantled and placed in a dishwasher (once charcoal is emptied of course!) For other models, such as a fire pit, use a specialised scraper to rid meat and sauce spills and ash before you get to work with a cloth.
Portable items are, with their specially adapted materials and design specs. Others are built to be outdoor showcase pieces, our product page descriptions let you know what falls into either category. Once again, the Lotus Grill comes our trumps for cleaning and portability! As does our Uuni Pizza Oven- now here's a fab bit of kit!
The more charcoal you use, the hotter and longer the embers burn. Use plenty to get a cook going, then measure out a reserve stash (and keep them glowing to one side), scrap them across and top up to a consistent level. By doing this you'll control the temperature and you'll never need to interrupt the bbq to bring fresh coals up to speed.
Now that you have some measure of the care these products require, you’re ready to dive into a great barbeque experience. We’ve written before about the history of the humble BBQ, have a peek, it maps out where the bbq originated and this gives us an indication as to where this age-old cooking tradition is going.
For more help or a friendly grilling, call Anna, Nat, Kate or Sophie on +44 (0) 1305 231 231 and they'll turn up the heat on any (other) questions you may have!
The treehouse beds are pure magic.
The beds create a fairytale atmosphere and the construction is solid, a substantial piece of furniture. It was well worth the effort to import from Europe,
there is nothing like them that I could find in the US.
