Beyond the BBQ with Everdure by Heston Blumenthal
Who doesn’t love a barbeque? That sizzle as you put a steak on the grill. The delicious chargrilled aromas filling the air. The sheer pleasure of being – and eating – outdoors. There is something magical about cooking around the BBQ – it’s a feast for all the senses and, naturally, Heston is a huge fan.
So, when we began the development of the Everdure by Heston BBQ range, it was a real labour of love. Here was an opportunity to get everyone excited about what BBQs can do. Working with the team in Australia, we set out to create some truly innovative products that would take barbequing to the next level, like designing an electric starter on the charcoal models that allows the charcoal to be lit and ready to cook within 10 minutes – no more hassle about getting that fire going in the first place. And we’ve also developed some of the most powerful gas BBQs in the world!
What some people don’t realize is that design and development is an ongoing process. You can’t rest on your laurels, and we’re busy working not just on brand-new products, but also on lots of terrific accessories for the entire range. What’s more, we really want to showcase what BBQs can do – there’s much more to them than just burgers and steaks and chicken breasts. So we keep thinking up and passing on recipes and techniques that’ll show just how versatile your BBQ can be.
Aside from our new range of barbeques – The Hub, Fusion, Cube, Furnace and Force – we have also launched a series of accessories customized for each one of the BBQs. From covers to pedestals to scuttles for ash and charcoal, heat-resistant gloves, drip trays, extra flat plates for the gas range, and warming racks for The Hub and Fusion. We’ve also researched and tested charcoal and wood chips from around the world to bring you a choice of fine fuel for your BBQ, from 100% natural lump charcoal to mountain ash wood chips.
Lately, we created a rotisserie cage and rotisserie tumbler for The Hub and Fusion, both of which’ll make rotisserie and grilling easier, paving the way for delicious dishes like spatchcock poussin and flavoured smoked popcorn. We’re also putting the final touches on our cooking accessories range Quantum, which comes in two forms: the aluminum range includes charcoal tongs, tweezers, spatulas, forks and fish turner, while The Quantum Premium range has a Titanium Coated finish and will include in addition a seafood cracker, poultry shears, oyster knife and fishbone tweezers – basically all the gadgetry you might need to get that grill going!
