Best classic BBQ box
For a classic barbecue box with a little bit of everything, you can’t go wrong with this DukesHill delivery. The classic box serves four to six, with the showstopper being two barbecue pork rib racks cured in DukesHill’s own sticky marinade. Traditional pork sausages and steak burgers are also included, and we like that the delivery includes four large burger buns, so you don’t need to pick these up separately. The compact (but weighty) box arrives with plenty of ice packs to keep the meat cool on arrival.
Piper’s Farm surf and turf BBQ box
If you want more than sausages, try this chic surf and turf barbecue box from Piper’s Farm. Feeding four to six people, the box includes two sirloin steaks, six hand-dived scallops (complete with roe) and a monkfish tail – perfect for turning a barbecue into a dinner party. The scallops are plump and juicy, the whole monkfish tail is meaty and the steaks are sure to be a crowd-pleaser. Everything arrives frozen (with a box of sea salt, all in 100% recyclable packaging), so you can keep it on standby for the ideal sunny weekend.
