Tasting the history with Weber BBQs

Believed to originate from the word barbacoa, used by the Spanish to describe the method of slow-cooking meat over a wooden platform they saw in the Caribbean, barbecue is nowadays an inevitable part of both casual and fine dining. However, most people confuse barbecue with grill. Barbecuing means that you are cooking for a longer time at a low temperature with the lid closed. In contrast to this “slow and low” technique, grilling is cooking the food fast and hot, with the lid up. BBQ will make your food soft and juicy; grill will crisp and smoke it up.

In Australia, people call it a “barby” or “barbie” and it is one of the favourite summer pastimes in the land down under. However, if you can’t have enough of BBQ, why have it just over the summer? With Weber BBQs, you can treat yourself anytime you want.

Invented in 1952 by George Stephen, who worked on manufacturing marine buoys for Weber Brothers Metal Work at the time, George’s barbecue kettle entered the history and took the world by storm. Taste the history with Weber’s “top 5 most wanted” BBQs.
