Daughter of a farmer and market gardener so have always had a connection with the outdoors, whether it was keeping animals or producing fruit, vegetables and cut flowers. Along with my work at Hayes Garden World I also have a smallholding, mainly breeding rare breed pigs. I gained an HND and BSc in Conservation and Environmental Land Management, as a result I am an ardent environmentalist and have a keen interest in environmentally friendly gardening. In my time at Hayes I worked for several years in the Outdoor Plant and Houseplant areas

How do I make the Christmas gravy on the Weber Genesis II LX?

Tasty gravy to complete your Christmas dinner

Chop up some carrots, parsnips, butternut squash and onions into chunks and place in a large Weber foil tray then place underneath the turkey to catch the juices. This will form the base of your gravy. When the turkey is resting take off the vegetables and mash or else blitz in a food processor. Pass through a sieve into a saucepan and heat gently on the BBQ side burner. Add some chicken stock and bring to a rolling boil, reduce until it starts to thicken then season and serve. If it doesn’t thicken just incorporate some plain flour into a knob of butter and add to the gravy, bring back to the boil whilst stirring continually.
