The clocks went forward this weekend and despite losing a precious hour of sleep, there is a lot to celebrate. It means that spring is officially here, the days will get progressively longer and there is going to be more opportunity to crank up the BBQ  for grilling steaks, burgers and sausages; or smoking wonderful hulks of meat in the great outdoors.*

Yes, Easter, the first Bank Holiday is now on the horizon and here at T&G we would just like to say that the BBQ season is now officially open. In just under three weeks, the country is set to collectively go up in smoke in back gardens, parks and beaches across the land. And to celebrate this groundswell of flame induced joy and emotion, we have teamed up with the Thuros - the leading manufacturer of stainless steel barbecues in Germany - and come up with a little competition for  all our customers to get involved with.

The premise is very simple. We want to see and get a flavour of your best plans for the Easter Bank Holiday across our social channels. In other words, show us your best BBQ recipe using meat from the T&G range, and we will put them all to Richard H. Turner and James George - who will select the best of the bunch. We will then feature your recipe on the blog, for all the world to see.

Of course, kudos only goes so far. Which is where Thuros are going to step in with the prize of Thuros T1 'To Go' Grill, along with a set of BBQ tongs and bag of charcoal too.

How does that sound? Pretty damn good, yes?

THÜROS T1 To Go Barbecue

Be the envy of the campsite, as you pull out your compact and nifty barbecue and begin to grill kebabs. Impress down on the promenade with the easy assembly and fine turning of rib eye steaks and pork chops. Be prepared for neighbours gather in awe on your patio, as you begin to flip burgers and regale how you won this kit - which can even be cleaned in a commercial dish-washer after cooling down and taking out the ashes. Amazing.

To be in with a chance, like we said, we just want to see your best creations, with description, over the next couple of weeks. So be sure to post either on Twitter, Instagram or on our Facebook page and use the hashtag #TGBBQCOMP.

The competition date closes at 1PM on Monday 15th April.

For more details, please check the T&C's below. Good luck!

*By the way, the funny thing is, whenever we begin to shout about the change of seasons here at T&G and that renewed sense of firestarting and mischief that comes, we always get the hardcore pipe up with a resounding - 'OI! WE NEVER STOPPED BBQING IN THE FIRST PLACE!'

And for that, we salute you and you should all have a head start on the rest!
