The Grill and Chill Pack from Pipers Farm

Mmmmmmmmeat!!!!! A rare sight in the Feeding Boys kitchen these days sadly. But just because we’re not barbecuing the days away, doesn’t mean you have to refrain…

Well the lovely folks at Pipers Farm have offered Feeding Boys readers the chance to stock up on meat with one of their Grill and Chill packs worth £34. There are two packs up for grabs, each containing 32 barbecue favourites including:

  • Four chicken drumsticks in a homemade tomato and honey marinade
  • Four pork steaks in a homemade lime and ginger marinade
  • Eight lean lamb kebabs

    Best bbq experience was sitting in the Arabian desert having a huge meat feast after having dug friends stuck car out of the sand for 8 hours in the sweltering heat with our hands. Never has food tasted so good!

    Best Barbecue experience was last Summer in Lowestoft.Hubby and I took our four children to the air show and we barbecued on the beach whilst overhead a multitude of aircraft were passing and we were even treated to a magical display by the Red Arrows.We stayed on the beach all day and had a fabulous time

    My best bbq memory also is the wettest! Going back to my 18th birthday my mum and dad had organised a massive bbq party for my birthday at my request it was planned as being “gardenbury” glasto but in my garden we had everything thought through bunting,a mini stage, sunflowers everywhere lights,candles and a little tent too for good measure we even hired a half drum bbq so we could make sure that everyone could have their meat at the same time. The day came round and it started well we werent basking in sun but it was dry. We fired up the coals, people started arriving and the drink started flowing then the heavens opened! That was it party ruined so you would have thought……But not in this case everyone got into the true spirit of the theme donned their wellies and macs and we carried on the cooking under the protection of a golf umberella. we even ate outside. By the end of the day we were soaked through but we had had a laugh and experience the closest thing to glastonbury you can get in a back garden!

    Wow, that all sounds delicious. Actually really good value as well. My best barbecue was on my birthday last year, it was a scorching hot day in June and we had some friends round, I did all the prep including making burgers and buns to go with them, spicy chicken kebabs, sauces etc etc, even Pizza Express style dough balls with garlic butter. And then I put my feet up, let my husband get on with the actual cooking bits (what is it about men and barbecues??) and had a few beers. It was just a lovely chilled out day, and I don’t think any of us felt like eating again for a week afterwards as we were so stuffed.

    Best barbecue experience was just recently after moving home from a busy town to a small village with a garden backing onto the open countryside. Finally got to fire up the barbie last weekend and it was wonderful to eat out in our lovely garden and not be disturbed by traffic noise. Bliss!

    My best bbq experience was on holiday in France when hubby, having placed the bbq a little too close to the hedge, nearly set it alight!The food was great and I think we had imbibed quite a lot of the local red wine – purely for research, of course. Anyway the whole family thought it was a hoot and Monsieur who owned the gite ( and hedge) was fine about it.

    My favourite BBQ is my firend’s birthday BBQ. Every year her hubby organises a ‘surprise’ BBQ for my friend. He hides all he needs at the bottom of the freezer or in the gararge. We all take along a dish of something and a bottle and of course shout ‘surprise’. I guess though the biggest surprise was the year he didn’t do it and we had all bought our food/ bottles in preparation!

    Its a really nice annual social event. Kind of like Christmas in summer except its friends not family.

  41. jane simone says:

    best bbq ever was this christmas just gone
    snow and so cold reminded me of canada
    at the time daughter was veggie and by the time we cooked veggies and put em on a plate they were cold

    My best BBQ memories took place about 4 years ago. We was at a flight archery competition in Yorkshire and it was my daughters 18th Birthday. She and her sister achieved 5 World Records during the day and it was just a fantastic day, we had steaks, burgers, sausages and of course a really special birthday cake. All of the competition entrants sang “Happy Birthday” to her it was just a really special day.

    The best bbqs invariably seem to be the impropmtu ones brought about due to waking up to a glorious days sunshine. A few phone calls and texts accompanied by a trip to the shops and local farm shops and before you know it you are enjoying a relaxing day in the sun with great company and delicious food, everyone chips in to help bring it together and before you know it the sun is setting and the quickly assembled party moves inside until the small hours

    He really excelled. What a great day. Good food nicely cooked and too much wine.

  63. DeniseUK says:

    My best BBQ experience has to be about 8 years ago. I was working on a project miles away from home, in Swansea. I was in a hotel with around 7 other colleagues & we decided to visit the Gower beaches with a couple of disposable BBQs & some meat, salad stuff etc courtesy of the local supermarket. The weather was amazing not too hot & with a slight breeze. The beach area was stunning & we even managed to collect some wood for a little fire because we stayed later into the evening. Those who weren’t driving had a few drinks & us drivers had some cans of soft drink. A really amazing evening & best of all no nasty grill to wash up as all our rubbish went into bags & back to the hotel bin! Superb

    my best experiance was when i was little, we had been on the beach all day, and there was a massive barbecue it was lovely, i was so hungry, will never forget that best day ever!

  65. Joey Grey says:

    My best BBQ experience was at the Reading Festival two years ago.

    My best BBQ experience was when my sister and her husband came round.Whilst they were waiting for the BBQ food to be ready they decided to play some games.The idea was to run down the garden spin as fast at you could around a broom with it in the air twirling above your head and then run back up the garden.Only my sister’s husband didn’t quite make it past the holly bush and ended up laying flat in it.Everyone was laughing so hard that we finally thought we should help him get back up and out of it.

  90. Hazel Rea says:

    Best BBQ experience was when I was at a sporting event my husband was participating in. It was a full day out and we had brought lots of food with us as well as knowing there would be a barbecue lunch. It was a great day I ate all the food I had brought and (by my husband’s calculation) most of a BBQ chicken … and three weeks later found out I was eight weeks pregnant.

  105. best ever has to be the bonfire night one that they did in Berlin every year when growing up as a forces brat. In 1971 we were deemed old enough at sensible enough to go without our parents ( maybe just cos it was too cold for them to come). Caroline and her 2 younger sisters, our good friend and only child Angela and me with my little brother in tow all trotted off together down to the airfield to watch the fireworks, stand around the bonfire and eat barbecue food, and on a freezing cold night instead of a hot sunny day it was delicious, if different

  117. Here’s my best BBQ experience
    I thought i would share my experiences of a hog roast I did last year for my sons first birthday.

    Earlier this year I expanded my burgeoning cookbook collection with the River Cottage Meat book, the section on open fire cooking sparked something in my imagination, especially the section on the Hog Roast. And being the sort of guy who loves to cook for a crowd and loves a challenge decided to take up Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s gauntlet to cook a whole animal, so I said to my wife, “I’ll do a Hog Roast for our sons first birthday”………

    So I spent a lot of time researching, especially some fascinating US sites, and decided to go for a simple motorised spit over a firepit.

    I managed to find a spit motor on the bay of e rated for 45kg, and when the motor arrived, I decided that it needed to be beefed up, so a friend who was excited with the prospect offered to create a spit, I was very grateful.

    The design was nice and simple with 2 uprights and a 6ft spit that would slot into the motor.

    The next thing needed was a pig, I approached a local butcher who could obtain one, and the nice people with a small holding over the road, who showed me a lovely free range berkshire who would be a perfect size, so I went for the local option. The pig was around 28kg a perfect size.

    The day before the party, the pig turned up, I injected the meat with peach juice, slashed the skin with a stanley knife, and rubbed in salt, pepper and fennel seeds, wrapped the pig in a sheet to keep the flies off, and had an early night.

    The next morning I awoke at 5am, and started the fire going with some apple wood i’d cut myself, and some bay branches to give a lovely smokey flavour to the meat. It soon became obvious that the motor wasn’t up to the job, so I came up with a Heath Robinson affair to turn and lock the spit into position.

    Everything was going good, I spent the morning keeping the fire going and turning the spit every 20 mins and trying to drive the heat into the thickest part of the pig, the shoulder.

    At about 1pm the guests started arriving, and the meat was softening up lovely, and the fat was rendering out, I was using cider to baste the outside of the pig, unfortunately I left a couple of friends in charge as I went away to sort things out and the fat flared up and burnt the shoulders more than I would have liked, but it was a fine line between getting the heat into the meat without burning the skin. I think there was a good 30-40% perfect crackling which I was happy with for a first attempt.

    I carved up the meat, and it was served with bread rolls, salad and homemade apple sauce, everyone loved it!

    After the day I was heard saying i’m never doing another hog roast again……….

    ….but what next…..a lamb…a deer…….a cow perhaps!

    What is certain i’ll need an even stronger motor and spit setup……

    or maybe i’ll just do what everyone else does and have a few bangers on a bbq?

  118. Kirsty Fox says:

    There isn’t one particular bbq experience but I used to love it when I was about 17 or 18 (30+ now) and we used to go round to mates houses and have a bbq and sit outside, the weather would be warm and we would talk for ages!

  119. Tracy Gladman says:

    It has to be when my 8 year old went to a barbecue and actually ate a burger, chicken and hot dog. Up until then she had always told me “I don’t like barbecue food”. It was a eureka moment and I was so happy I could have danced!

My uncle who isnt allowed to touch d i y, had used plastic wall plugs to hold the grill up so they melted……. but the food was saved on throw away b-b-q’s and my uncle still hasnt lived it down…….

  125. Val Pownall says:

    Best ever for me just has to be the many and varied BBQs we enjoyed when visiting an old school friend in Oz a few years ago. They were always so laid back and impromptu with hardly any planning involved and absolutely amazing! The best ever. The one ‘planned’ aspect of any of them was removing red-backs from the BBQ before we fired it up!

  129. Best BBQ experience has to be a Halloween/ Bonfire Night street party at our old house. The whole street came together to make a feast with mulled wine kept warm on one bbq! We all picthed in with food, drink, tables, bbqs and patio heaters. The retained firemen put on an amazing fireworks display and everyone was in fancy dress. Went on until 3am!

  130. Midi M says:

    I decided to host a brunch one Sunday inviting people to arrive at approx. 11.00. AM. I suggested people brought the Sunday papers and we would all have a relaxed time. I wondered how many people would actually turn up, and would the whole idea be a flop. No way everyone took up my invitation and a great time was had by all . I will definitely do this again.

    The best barbecue experience was at a pool party when I was young. Lots of people, piles of food by the grills all deliciously barbecued without any marinades. @maisietoo

    My best barbecue experience was a very drunken and happy beach barbecue with Club 18-30 in Corfu in the days when these things were more fun and less seedy. I had been forced to take my big sister with me and she had been really strict but she had too much wine and sun and got sick and had to sit in the shade and at last I was off the lead and free to have some fun. Good times. @essexgirlSE

    That’s easy, a fabulously warm summer’s day and a friend was holding a BBQ. Everyone was welcome from near and far you just had to bring your own food and drink. Several families turned up and we ended up being about 100 with people sprawled through the house and garden, then a game of rounders on the village green later in the afternoon. Nothing planned, it all just happened as the best things normally do and the BBQ lasted from lunchtime til supper!

    Many years ago on my 40th birthday we had a BBQ for about 50 in the middle of July. At the last moment the heavens opened and my husband and his cousins did the bbq outside with umbrellas whilst we ate inside. Late the rain stopped and we sat outside for strawberries and cream

    My best bbq experience has to be this year for my Brothers birthday, he really wanted a BBq however we don’t have or can afford a bbq so we decided to put our heads together and we used the old metal bin in the garden the grids from the oven and bought some coals. He was so pleased we’d gone to all that effort, however 2 hours later the heat from the BBQ had got too much for our rusty old bin and it fell through. Most of us were too tipsy to notice, but it was a great day none the less.

    My best bbq experience was when I was around 12 and it was such a warm balmy evening, surrounded by family and the smell of burgers and sausages. The kids played in the garden whilst the adults chattered and I will always look back on that, particularly as some of those adults are no longer with us. But it just provided a wonderful memory to lookk back on. Thanks for running!

  170. My best memorable bbq experience was a couple of years ago…on a gorgeous summers evening and the WHOLE family coming round. My moms side, my dads side, my partners parents, neighbours, friends…there were a lot of people and we had a ball! It was just nice everyone being together cause it doesn’t happen a lot.

    Best BBQ evening was in South Africa, a fabulous warm night, a super BBQ experience, fantastic food, fantastic entertainers, truly a night to remember forever

  176. My best BBQ experience was when cooking al fresco during the schools fete. We had set up a huge grill and the burgers and sausages cooked to perfection, just charred enough for taste and were succulent (as they were supplied by a local farm). I saw all my friends there and even ate with them. The weather was nicely warm so I wasn’t sweltering by the coals. The kids had loads of friends to play with on the field. And to top it all, it was a short walk home (next door) and lots of people came home with us later.

    My best ever barbecue experience was when I was about 15 years old – it was with my family – the meat was half cooked and charred (as it usually is), the coals took forever to light, but I remember it fondly because we toasted marshmallows on the dying embers and put potatoes in foil and cooked them in the coals, and there was laughter and happiness in the air.

    When my brother was a wee boy we had a BBQ on the beach for his birthday. BBQs were much simpler then! My auntie had a fold out picnic table with all the cutlery and plates in it. We sheltered neath orange stripey wind cheaters and dug our dads into the sand. I always remember the taste of burnt sausages and birthday cake! My brother is 45 this month, so I guess it was 40 years ago. I have 4 brothers and my auntie had 3 sons, so I was always the only girl. Guess what-my dad was a fireman too!

    After a very stressful year for the family, with lots of problems and generally being so busy it was rare that we were all at home at any one time (exam season, house move etc.), I came home one day laden with the monthly shop and not in the best of moods, to find my son had organised an impromptu barbecue for the family. He was busy cooking away and the whole family was there enjoying themselves and relaxed and happy for once – it was an oasis in an otherwise awful year. I relaxed and enjoyed myself for the first time in months. @WISHGIRL123
