Be safe with your barbie.

  • Place your BBQ in a safe area, away from places such as gorse and heathland that can easily catch alight.
  • Never leave your BBQ unattended at any time.
  • Have a bucket of water or sand nearby in case of emergencies.
  • Don’t drop lit matches or cigarettes anywhere.
  • Be careful when disposing of ashes and/or a disposable BBQ as it may still be hot.
  • Charcoal emits the toxic gas, carbon monoxide, so keep your BBQ down wind and in the open air.
  • If you’re using a gas BBQ make sure it’s in good working order and check the manufacturer’s instructions about how to check for potential leaks in connections/hoses and that the regulator is correctly fitted.

Stay safe

Farm shops and markets.

Where to pick up local produce to pop on the barbie.

If you’re planning to light up your barbie, why not fill it with a spread of local Jersey produce? What could be better than a grilled lobster caught fresh the same morning or crunchy local asparagus sizzling away on the open coals? On your adventures around the island, you’ll find ‘hedge veg’ farm stalls dotted through the countryside where you can ‘grab and go’ produce straight from the field. Don’t miss popping into the Central Market and the Beresford Street Fish Market to pick up even more treats to enjoy on your BBQ. The island is also bursting with farm shops, so take your pick and plan a barbeque feast to remember.
