When the sun is shining, it means one thing: it’s time for a great British BBQ. Ideally with jacket potatoes and beautifully coloured salads. But, first and foremost, you’ll want to find the best quality meat and we believe the best way to find this is not in a supermarket, but with one of these BBQ delivery boxes…
Here, we recommend some of our favourite summer BBQ boxes from farms that produce high-quality, delicious produce. And they do so through high-welfare and nature-friendly approaches, whether they farm organically, free-range and/or regeneratively.
It’s worth noting that each supplier offers a whole range of produce, not just what we’ve picked out or mentioned. So, if you like the sound of one box, we recommend exploring the brand’s website to find what else they have on offer.
Now, without further ado, here are our top picks for the best BBQ delivery boxes in the UK in no particular order – they’re all brilliant in their unique ways, so you really can’t go wrong!
