Ian Hodgett
Furniture and Barbecue Buyer
Ian has worked for Hayes since leaving school, spending the majority of this time in the outdoor furniture department and like Keith has an in-depth knowledge of Hayes customers. He also has the same ethos at heart when buying garden furniture; will it be an acceptable price and quality? He also takes into account the changing fashions and environmental considerations, such as using recycled materials, being recyclable at the end of its life and is the timber sourced from forests which have a re-planting policy. Ian’s other passion is barbecuing which resulted in Hayes having one of the few Weber Worlds within The Barbecue Shop here in store. The Barbecue Shop has gained a reputation as being one of the best places in north west England to obtain all your BBQ requisites as it stocks everything you need apart from the food. Some of our best sellers are the Angus & Oink and Traeger rubs and sauces which can elevate your food from the ordinary to the absolutely divine. Ian regularly posts on Instagram the results of his grilling labours and it’s not just the usual barbecue fare of bangers and burgers. If you head to the Hayes Garden World Youtube channel you can view almost 200 videos Ian has appeared in with top BBQ chef Richard Holden. These videos show you that there is no limit to the creative dishes you can cook on your BBQ, whether it’s fuelled by gas, charcoal, electric or wood pellets. Almost all the dishes are simple and well within the capabilities of any barbecuer, they range from the Christmas dinner to puddings to vegetarian dishes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Weber barbecues and accessories are possibly the best quality it is possible to buy, they are constructed to the highest standards and use only the best quality materials. They offer grills which use charcoal, gas and electric. Although the purists BBQ will argue that true barbecuing can only be carried out on a charcoal grill the gas and electric do have their place. The gas grills generally have a bigger grill area so if you regularly entertain larger parties then the charcoal grills will simply not hold enough food. Gas is also less messy, no ashes to dispose of, and comes to temperature quicker than the charcoal and once at temperature is easier to control, especially if you are a novice. The electric Pulse range are essential if you live in a property which bans the use of live fire and there is very little difference in taste between the three options. 
Weber are one of the premier BBQ manufacturers and as such produce a huge range of accessories to enable you to cook anything on your grill that you would in your kitchen. You can cook dishes that you would not normally associate with BBQ cooking such as stir fries, stews, crepes, cakes, rotisserie chicken, chips, bread and a whole lot more. There is even a sear grate to enable you to show off those perfect caramelisation marks on your steak. As well as the grill accessories there are all the tools, cook books, aprons, gloves, cleaning accessories and even a digital temperature probe to enable you to cook your meat and fish to the perfect temperature so you can say goodbye to salmonella chicken and hello to steak cooked exactly to your guests requirements.  
Yes, all the grills carry a 5 -10 year warranty against defective workmanship and materials, provided the grill has been used in the appropriate manner and secured in high winds, not left to blow around your outdoor space. The Barbecue Shop located in store will arrange to pick up your grill, service it and return it to you if you require a full service, they will replace any damaged or worn out parts and give it a thorough clean. Please call the team in The Barbecue Shop for details and prices. 
Yes there are several models which are small enough to pack in the car boot. The NEW gas powered Traveller comes with an integrated stand so no more bad backs and it assembles in minutes so you can start grilling straight away and there are no messy hot ashes to deal with. The smaller Go-Anywhere is either gas or charcoal powered but you will have to find somewhere to site it or else grill on your knees. The small charcoal Smokey Joe is also ideal to take on an outing but again you need something on which to place it or else grill on your knees, and there is also the problem of having to dispose of hot ashes. 

Buyers guide to Weber barbecues

The Weber World within the store at Ambleside is one of only a handful in the UK, retailing everything Weber manufacturers. Weber are one of the top BBQ manufacturers worldwide and are so confident in their quality that they offer a 5 -10 year guarantee on their grills. Weber produce gas, charcoal and electric grills so whatever your preference there is sure to be a grill to suit. Even if you only have a balcony in an apartment where live fire is banned you can still have BBQ with the electric Pulse range. Click here to read the blog and watch the video where we compare burgers cooked over gas, charcoal and electric, you may be surprised by the results. Electric grills are frowned upon by the BBQ purists but they do have their place. If you are struggling to decide which fuel is the one for you why not have a test drive a BBQ in the store; just give the team in The Barbecue Shop a call and they will book a slot. Your chosen BBQ will be ready for you, all you need to do is bring the food, the staff will be on hand to give you any help or information. Gas grills usually have a larger grill area than the charcoal so if you regularly entertain large parties then these grills are for you. The Weber Summit S-670 is one of the largest on the market and will easily cater for parties of up to 12. It has the Weber trademark GBS (Gourmet Barbecue System) capability which gives you the opportunity to cook anything on your grill that you would in the kitchen. GBS accessories include a wok for stir fries, a Dutch oven for stews and casseroles, a griddle plate for the great English breakfast or delicate fish and a sear grate for perfect markings on your steak. It also has an integrated rotisserie allowing you to cook chickens while grilling steaks and other BBQ fare. It is not only the large gas grills which have GBS but also the smaller charcoal Master-Touch grills if you don’t need the large capacity gas grills.

Gas will come to temperature quicker and there are no messy ashes to deal with. If you want to replicate the charcoal smokiness on the gas grill you can place a smoke box full of flavoured wood chips over the burner. Several of the Weber grills are portable so you can experience fresh cooked food when you are out and about in the countryside or on the beach. The NEW gas powered Traveller comes with an integrate stand and assembles in minutes so you can start grilling straight away.
