Grab your sizzling summer BBQ essentials from Preston Markets

June 3 2024

Celebrating National BBQ Week 3 - 9 June 2024

The history of the word barbecue (BBQ for short) comes from a Caribbean Indian tribe called the Taino, who would slow cook meat on a wooden framework resting on sticks above a fire, which resulted in a charred and smokey flavour. Around the 16th century, Spanish explorers who encountered this native cooking style adapted it and called it 'Barbacoa'. Over the years, the outdoor cooking style spread to other areas of America and later to different parts of the globe.

The style of cooking became so popular that in the 18th century the word 'barbecue' was entered into The Dictionary of the English Language and by the 19th Century it was firmly established as a staple cooking method for social occassions and bringing people together to eat and socialise.

With summer and BBQ week officially here, what better reason to polish up your tongs and skewers, stock up on food and drink and invite your friends and family round for a classic BBQ evening. For all your foodie favourites, look no further than Preston Markets to grab those BBQ essentials.
