Summer can be symbolised by longer evenings, flip flops and the aroma of chargrilled food! To celebrate National BBQ week and the approach of summer, we have complied a list of top BBQ tools, ideal for making this summer a yummy one.
Whether the sun is shining or the heavens have opened, be sure to get the BBQ out, cooking a delicious feast that everyone will remember. For many, being BBQ ready may not seem important, but by making sure your tools are up for the job before the big day, you too can avoid any unnecessary embarrassment.
Be on trend
The apron you choose to wear when cooking says a lot about who you are and what type of chef you want to be. When cooking choose an apron that will demand respect and authority when in the kitchen. Choose for either the Dexam denim apron with the matching gauntlet. Tough and durable, this apron is ideal for hot afternoons sweating over a hot BBQ. Perhaps you would rather prefer the Rushbrookes Slate Grey apron, a traditional apron favoured by butchers and professional chefs since 1837. Coming in a range colours, choose a colour most suited to your personality.
When on the BBQ, you want to be confident that you have the finest tools available. Whether you are turning sausages or flipping the burgers, make sure that you have all the tools needed for creating delicious results. Making sure that they can withstand the heat is a top priority along with comfort when held.
From Stainless Steel to a smooth walnut turner, Dexam has a turner to meet all budgets. If you like the effect that wood creates to a dining table, we recommend investing in the premium beech and acacia 7-piece utensil set. The set includes serving tongs, pasta spoon, turner and a serving fork and spoon.
Exceed all expectations this summer and get making your own homemade burgers. Easy to create, have a memorable summer, personalising each burger with different flavours that your guests will enjoy.

Burgers maybe in big demand on the BBQ, but so are sausages of all flavours and styles. From the chipolata to the Cumberland, apple sausages to sausages drizzled with honey.

Spiral that salad

By spirilizing vegetables, you can create excitement and create a range of different textures and tones to excite even the fussiest of eaters.

Handle the cob
Corn on the cob, a classic and must have in attendance at any BBQ or summer picnic! While many of us many love the corn in the cob, others will dread its appearance, due to the difficulty that they experience when snacking on this vegetable. Say goodbye to brunt fingers and dripping butter and use the Dexam Set of 8 Corn on the Cob Holders.
