Cheapest supermarket for a BBQ – which shop sells most affordable products?
With the weather turning warmer, more and more Britons are spending time outside in their gardens. If you’re thinking of having a barbecue this weekend, it is worth knowing where sells the most affordable food and drink products.
Money.co.uk’s basket included supermarket own-brand items, such as quarter pounder beef burgers, pork sausages, and burger buns, as well as finest options of the same products.
The company looked at the cost for party sizes of two, four, six, eight, and 10 people, before finding the average basket value for each supermarket by calculating the average cost between two and 10 guests.
According to Money.co.uk, the average UK BBQ costs Britons around £51 in food.

Money.co.uk also predicted that a whopping £258.3million will be spent by Britons on BBQ food this summer.
Salman Haqqi, the company’s personal finance expert, shared his tips on how to save money and make the most out of your barbecue.
He said: “One of the best things about summer is inviting all of your friends and family round for an impromptu alfresco BBQ, to enjoy delicious food and great company while the sun sets.
“Hosting a BBQ can be quite expensive, but thankfully there are ways to stretch your budget as you welcome others back into your gardens this summer.
“It’s certainly worth bearing in mind that the fewer people you invite, the fewer you will ultimately have to feed.
“However, if you’re looking to host a larger celebration, it’s perfectly acceptable to ask invitees to bring drinks, meat or side dishes with them.
“This not only means that guests will bring food with them they know they will enjoy, it will also ensure there is plenty to go around and a good selection of options for all.
“Try to look for more inexpensive cuts and types of meats while browsing the supermarket – replace the pricier options of steak and salmon with pork, turkey, cod or haddock.
“Finally, use your freezer space to avoid any food waste.
“Take advantage of any reduced food and special offers at supermarkets, and stock up on essentials for future BBQ’s.”
