Thankfully the answer is – almost here!
With BBQ season around the corner just waiting to rise from the ashes of last year’s coals, we at Figtree Products are super excited to scrub up those grills and tools ready for another great run of backyard barbecuing, grilling, tailgating, searing, char-grilling and outdoor fun galore.
Just thinking about the mouth-watering treats and cooked meats you can almost feel the heat of a hot summer day on your shoulders. But it won’t only be imagination for long because BBQ-worthy weather will be coming on strong this weekend, sweeping across the lower states and even up into Central America!
With that in mind we say it’s TIME TO GET READY. Dig out your gas or coal grill and check it’s all working, gather up those barbecue tool sets and take stock of your supplies. Spatulas, forks, turners, and tongs – did they all survive the winter without anything mysteriously going missing? Perhaps it’s time for an upgrade? Our highly reviewed Figtree-Chef 3 Piece BBQ Tool Set has you covered either way so there’s no excuse not to be ready this year, remember you can never be too prepared!
Let’s take a look at who will benefit most from the weather this weekend with our BBQ Weather Watch below.
BBQ Weather Watch
Outlook: Looking Good For Cooking
Rising from the ashes of last year’s embers indeed, Phoenix leads the way and may even have already seen its first bbq and grill enthusiasts this year. With temperatures set to surpass 85 Fahrenheit this Saturday we know there will be a sweet cured smoke in the air, challenged only by aromas of sweet honey sticky sauce. Arizona be ready, it looks like you’re only getting hotter!
Area: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, El Paso
Outlook: Cool Barbecue Conditions
Dotted across America you lucky locations are even above the average temperature in your own states. With the rising weather you top off at just over 80 Fahrenheit on Saturday - offering the perfect chance to ease into the outdoor frame of mind by firing up that barbecue to complement the cool evening breeze. Don’t laze around too long though the weather is creeping up around you!
Area: Houston, New Orleans, San Antonio, San Francisco
Outlook: Getting the Glaze Ready
Sweeping its way up in waves, the mid-70’s heat signals the turning times, and we’re not talking about your grandmother’s out of date knitwear, you guys actually are on the verge of being in season. Get ahead of the game and brush up on your recipes and hey why not get grandma making that secret sauce instead.
Area: Dallas, Lubbock, Albuquerque, Oklahoma City, Denver, Jacksonville
Outlook: Hang Fire ‘til it’s Higher
Of course we would never discourage anyone from BBQing it up large (and kudos to those who do!) but we’d recommend taking this time to prepare, both mentally and physically, for the onslaught of delicious meat treats that will be on their way with the coming weather. Why not start planning a family get together, party or event and dust off those grills and grill tools to be your trusty go to’s when you need them – it won’t be long!
The Message is clear – BBQ Season is (almost) here!
This sweeping weather is working its way up the country and we have every confidence it will continue to do so over the coming weeks and even right on through the season. Amazing news for lovers of the great outdoors, grilling gurus and BBQ brothers alike.
