How To Cook A Full English Breakfast On The Weber Genesis II LX

Enjoy a lazy Sunday breakfast cooked on the BBQ in the garden

There’s nothing quite like a full English breakfast to get a lovely, lazy Sunday off to a great start. Cooked outside on the BBQ it keeps all the frying smells out of the house and allows you to enjoy the garden at the same time. The only things we missed off are the fried bread and the hash browns which you can cook quite easily on the griddle accessory, especially tasty if you have lovely bacon fat in which to cook them. As you can guess this is not a particularly healthy way to start the day but once in a while it makes a delicious treat.



  • eggs
  • bacon
  • sausages
  • black pudding
  • mushrooms
  • tomatoes
  • baked beans
  • cracked black pepper
  • Maldon sea salt

We have pre-heated the BBQ with the 2 left hand burners on a low – medium heat and the griddle plate over the top. The third burner is off and the right hand side one is on full; so we have direct and indirect areas. Spray the grate with Weber Non-stick Spray and place the sausages over the direct heat, once they have reached a safe internal temperature of 75C (167F) move them to the area of indirect heat. One of the Weber digital Instant Read Temperature probes is an absolute essential for checking that your meat is cooked to a safe temperature; not only for use on the barbecue.  

Season the mushrooms and tomatoes with the black pepper and sea salt and place on the lightly oiled pre-heated griddle, once cooked move to the indirect heat area. Place the bacon on the griddle and the black pudding over the direct heat and again move to the indirect area once cooked. The new Weber griddle that we are using slopes gently to a back channel which holds the excess fat so when cooking the eggs place 2 at the top of the oiled griddle. Once they have crisped on the bottom move them towards the back and place 2 more at the top. Heat the beans in a saucepan on the side burner and enjoy your breakfast.
