With the economic climate and the pound weak against the Euro making UK holidays ever more popular, ‘STAY-cation’ could be the new vacation for the Summer of 2009. And what better way to enjoy the summer sun than to fire up the barbecue to entertain your family and friends?
Celebrity chef and author of best-selling book Barbecues and Grilling(1), Antony Worrall Thompson is often happiest barbecuing for his family and friends. His passion for outdoor cooking ensures that his attention to detail and experience helps him develop high quality, performance barbecues at affordable prices.
In fact, Antony’s 2008 barbecue range was received so well in 2008 that sales increased by 50% on the previous year and his 22” Kettle Grill (SRP from £99.99 at Argos, Homebase, Wyevale Garden Centre, Robert Dyas, Freemans Grattan, Next and Amazon) was awarded the Which? Best Buy (July 2008) scoring highest among the 17 models tested.
Antony says: “I am really proud that my 22” Kettle Grill won the Which? Best Buy accolade. It really is a simple yet effective barbecue for those who enjoy traditional charcoal barbecuing. Although we are continuing to produce some of our 2008 best-selling barbecues, we have also developed new models such as the portable grill for holiday fun and smaller 2-burner gas barbecues to whet the appetite of those who have yet to enjoy this popular pastime.”
