The BBQ Shop

“The good times that summer brings have arrived and there’s one activity that unites us more than just about any other when the British weather’s in a good mood: The Barbecue!

Leaving aside the tired old tropes of rained-off reunions and ‘kiss the cook’, chefs-for-a-day dads, there remains the question of what to do when it’s time to re-evaluate your garden’s cook station. Is it time to retire that carbonised bucket of rust that once called itself a BBQ? Well, obviously. But if you’re after something to take your al-fresco cooking to smoky new heights, a BBQ that brings out the best in your food, one that’s guaranteed to bring pleasure to yourself and your guests over many, many summers to come then come on over to The BBQ Shop in Old Woking.

The BBQ Shop stocks an unbelievable range of top name barbecues from brands such as Broil King, Napoleon, Cadac, Beefeater and Big Green Egg. There are models in a variety of gas and charcoal options for every cook imaginable, from super-portable grills to four-burner ranges to a fully equipped outdoor artisan kitchen, fitted with sinks and fridges.

Maybe you’ve got your eye on those BBQs-du-jour, the Big Green Eggs, in particular. In which case The BBQ Shop are the local experts to talk to when choosing just what fantastically versatile ceramic green ovoid to put in pride of place in your garden. Made from the finest, highest quality American ceramic material which comes with a Lifelong Guarantee, Big Green Eggs have even been seen in many Michelin Star Restaurants because of the moistness of the food created and the durability that the build gives the cooks.

There are a full range of packages available across this range and others, and it goes without saying that they can supply every kind of BBQ accessory you’d need, from cleaning products, extra grills and griddles to utensils and even tools just for making pizza.

And if you can’t see what you’re after in store, you’ll find their vast range in its entirety online and all of the models you see on the site can be delivered to your door. We’ll even build your BBQ for you should you wish it.”

Traeger Grills – Demonstration Stage Sponsor

With a Traeger Grill you can grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise and BBQ!

The 6-in-1 versatility allows you to cook hot and fast or low and slow. When you fire up your Traeger, you ignite the power to grill, smoke, bake, roast, braise, and BBQ – you’re the master of all trades. From baby back ribs to wood-fired pizza, smoky mac & cheese and even homemade apple pie, anything you can cook up in your head, you can cook up on your Traeger.

Ever wondered how a Traeger works?

The auger at the bottom of the hopper pulls the hardwood pellets into the fire pot where they contact the hot rod and ignite the pellet grill. Set the temperature on your pellet smoker to the desired setting and begin cooking, convection-style heat cooks food evenly and encircles food with delicious and flavorful smoke.

Wood fired cooking is simple with Traeger

Traeger’s ease of use and simple controls let you focus on what matters: your food, your family, and your friends. Our digitally controlled convection heating system simplifies wood-fired cooking, allowing for easy temperature settings, just like your oven. So whether you’re perfecting a recipe or watching the game, Traeger has you covered.

Perfect results with every cook

Consistent temperature gives you consistent results, meaning you can craft food rather than tend to the fire. Traeger manages the temperature for you, cutting out a major variable in achieving consistent results. Master your brisket recipe, champion a whole roasted chicken, and cook with confidence knowing that you can replicate perfect results again and again.

Quiet Waters

BBQ Shop

“Quiet Waters is a small, family run, mixed farm in Atherington, in the heart of North Devon, specialising in producing quality wholesome foods and exploring and sharing sensible, sustainable methods and approaches to farming in what are changing and challenging times.

Our aim is to provide a great choice of seasonal foods that have been raised by us here on the farm, in the best possible way and then carefully prepared to create something truly special. Our land and our animals are ‘beyond organic’ – we use no agrochemicals, veterinary drugs or other uncool stuff anywhere. All of the traditional varieties of plants and animals we produce here are bred, raised and cared for naturally in the fields and woodland, allowed time and space to grow slowly, shown the respect they deserve. All in all its just about good food the way it should be.

We’ve created a selection of rubs, sauces and marinades that have been developed from a wide range of homemade recipes, using only the finest ingredients, that we make here on the farm and which taste like no other, meaning your meal can be elevated to a whole new level.

At The Big Meat you’ll also see Quiet Waters ‘Smoke and Fire’, our event catering side to the farm, which brings the farm’s produce to private functions, parties, weddings, pop up feasts and festivals throughout the UK.”
