The Dorset Meat Company – The Big Event BBQ Meat Box
Whether you’re after a time-saving barbecue box brimming with garden-party staples or want to handpick a bespoke selection of grass-fed meat for your alfresco cookout, you’ll be able to indulge your whim via The Dorset Meat Company webshop.
For those who favour ease, The Big Event BBQ Meat Box is the obvious choice. Everything included (rump steaks, chicken thighs, pork sausages, beef burgers, pork spare ribs and chicken drumsticks) is sourced from small-scale farms in Wiltshire and Dorset.

The Butchers at Darts Farm – The Ultimate BBQ Selection Box
You won’t even need to pop to the shops to pick up ingredients for the salad or a token tub of slaw if you order The Ultimate BBQ Selection Box from Darts Farm in Devon.
Alongside a cracking selection of meat from the in-house butchery (garlic-butter chicken pieces, Chinese-style pork belly slices, pork sausages, beef steak burgers and a sharing rump steak), it includes everything else you’ll need for a delicious alfresco feast. There’s Ogleshield cheese and Ryder’s Bakery rolls for the ultimate artisan cheeseburgers, plus Shillingford Organics leaves and ripe IOW tomatoes for the side salad.

The best thing about this barbecue bundle is that you can personalise your box: choose two artisan sausage flavours, select seasonings for chicken thighs, drumsticks and breast, decide if you want your lamb chops minted and add a maple glaze to your barbecue ribs.
