WEBER BBQ

Weber BBQ Stage

Weber BBQs – have been celebrating perfect BBQs since 1952 with their superior know-how, unique range of products and their enthusiasm for all things ‘BBQ’. Today Weber is internationally synonymous with barbecuing innovation, perfect barbecue products and the ultimate barbecue experience.

“All it takes is a pile of wood or charcoal and a BBQ, and barbecue becomes accessible to practically everyone. The origin of the word ‘barbecue’ can be credited to the Spanish. They referred to the cooking style popular among the Taíno, an indigenous people of the Caribbean, as ‘barbacoa.'”

With a host of BBQ masters lining up to share their secrets for grilling, join us and discover the best flavours and techniques for your summer Weber BBQ.
