Get your garden BBQ ready with these tried and tested luxury essentials.
Summer’s arrived, so let long hammock naps and sausage sizzling commence. And to help you host the best BBQ this summer, we’ve rounded up all smartest, most luxurious gear out there.
So here’s everything you need to get the garden party started and to keep it going all summer long.
Bang & Olufsen BeoSound 1 Wireless Speaker, £1,085
Is this not the best looking wireless speaker you’ve ever seen? This beautifully designed B&O speaker is crafted from a single sheet of aluminum, and can easily be moved from room to room. It boasts impressive sound tech, with 360-degree audio that travels evenly in all directions. This thing is loud. And the audio stays clean and crisp however high you go. Futuristic touch controls let you change the track or rewind in a tap and a swipe, working from any angle to stand at. You can stream music from practically any device (phones, NAS drives, laptops) over Bluetooth, AirPlay, DLNA and GoogleCast. There’s also the BoseSound app to queue up songs, use streaming services or add the speaker to your B&O multi-room setup (if you’re lucky enough to own more than one). It’s the perfect party starter for indoor soirees and with such powerful sound, it’s great for garden shindigs too, we’d just recommend keeping the speaker in the room nearest to your garden as it’s not waterproof.
Champagne Stool Ice Bucket, £150
Add a touch of class to your garden décor with this champagne cork-shaped ice bucket. Not only will it keep your fizz perfectly chilled, it also doubles up as a stool if you’re running low on chairs for your guests. It can chill up to three bottles at a time and you can also use it indoors as a storage box.
Weber iGrill 2, £99.99
Make the worry of undercooked chicken a thing of the past with this super fancy grill thermometer, suitable for all types of BBQ. This nifty gadget links to an app on your mobile and sends an alert when your food is ready to eat. The easy-to-use app lets you select your meat, the recipe and how you’d like it to be cooked. Which means less time hovering over the BBQ and more time having fun with your guests.
TABASCO & Urbanology BBQ Tool Wrap, £57
Hot sauce brand TABASCO have teamed up with London fashion designer Urbanology to create a stunning capsule collection of BBQ accessories. These stylish products have been made from locally-sourced materials, with 10% of profits going to charity. We love the BBQ Tool Wrap with its 100% leather strap and handy design – so you can fire up the grill in true fashion. It’s even rainproof, just in case those British rain clouds decide to make an appearance.
