Airbourne's top 5 BBQ tips

Airbourne sharing drinks

Summer is here! The sun is out, the beer is cold and the meat is ready to be grilled. We love summer and we love barbecues, but as Brits we’re not the best at it. We like to think we’re the daddies of all things charred, but everyone on Earth knows that Australia have mastered the art of adding meat to fire.

That’s where Airbourne come in.

We invited Joel and Ryan from the beer-swilling hard rockers round to the Hammer offices to show us how it’s done (and so we could get some decent food). In the video below, they guide us through the five essential points needed for the best BBQ of your life – from the use of salt through to access to the cricket scores. Follow all these rules and you’ll be crowned the new Burger King.

Airbourne’s new album Breakin’ Outta Hell is released September 23, via Spinefarm.
