The British BBQ Society & Outdoor Foodie Forum
Setup in 2008 by Toby Shea, a BBQ enthusiast of many years, the British BBQ Society is the primary barbecue forum in the UK. It is free to use and covers all aspects of barbecue, from grilling to low and slow, competitions to classes and now incorporates “The Outdoor Foodie Forum” including Wood Fired Ovens (Clay Ovens), Fiery Food, Seasonal Fair, and all aspects of outdoor cooking!
The mainstream barbecue culture in Britain has been far from prestigious. In other parts of the world, barbecue is synonymous with great food eaten in a great atmosphere, whether we’re talking Aussie barbies, South African Braais or American pits, BBQ food is revered around the world. In Britain we get the barbecue party atmosphere but often the food isn’t great. We set up the society to provide a place for BBQ enthusiasts in the UK to share their knowledge, learn from their peers and spread the word that BBQ is more than burnt bangers and botulism burgers. In recent years we’ve seen British food go through a renaissance, once the laughing stock of the world, British cuisine and British chefs are now respected around the world. So let’s do the same for British Barbeque!!!
We host numerous social and charitable events throughout the year. Our primary aims are to promote great BBQ food in the UK and have some fun doing so. We support a number of local and national charities, after all the social aspect of BBQ is just as important as the food.
