Our Guide to Summer BBQ on the Deck

Thursday, 12th Jun, 2014

Shhh! We will whisper it as it is dangerous to shout but summer is here, finally and (hopefully) here to stay until September.

Many will agree that the best thing about summer is a barbecue; sun, drinks, food and friends. The perfect combination to make the most of summer afternoons and evenings.

If you have decking however a barbecue may be a dream too far or the bane of your life. This needn't be the case and so we have developed a quick fire guide (pun intended in a good way) to having fun and safe barbeques this summer.

 

1.      Scrub your deck. Ensure your deck is clean and ready for your summer barbeque or garden party.

2.      Consider your area - where is the barbecue going to go? It is best to keep your barbecue in an open area of your decking that is away from kids and other hazards.

3.      Raise your barbecue. We recommend to not have it flat against your deck to avoid any potential deck damage. Bricks can be used to lay on the deck and raise your barbecue.  Alternatively a BBQ mat is an inexpensive way to protect your deck against grease or charcoal spillages. Quick Tip - a great idea to protect your decking against fire and spillages is to lay down sand. Create a 'beach' atmosphere in your own back garden and really let the summer party atmosphere begin.

 

We can't guarantee that your summer garden party or barbecue will be a success, we can't guarantee that it will even stay sunny but by following these guidelines we can ensure that your deck will stay fresh and ready for the summer ahead.Shhh!
