1. Grilling Equipment

Having a good set of grilling equipment is essential in making sure you have all the right tools needed to fire up your favourite dishes without any hassle!

3. Condiments & Spices

Don’t forget to pump up the flavours of your BBQ with condiments, spices and sauces for that extra OOMPH! Remember, it’s the small things that make your food taste a lot better!

Aside from the standard ketchup, mustard and sauces, we find having a good Sambal Belachan mix really turns up the heat – especially for those that love spicy!
