Online Halal Meat Delivery for National BBQ Week
We bet most of you who are fasting this Ramadan month don’t know that it’s National BBQ Week this week.
First celebrated back in 1997, it’s safe to say that the British BBQ scene has certainly changed since then. According to the official Facebook page, while only around 9 million barbecues occurred back then, last year we enjoyed a staggering 122 million barbies.
And there’s no reason why we dedicated lot of fasting enthusiasts shouldn’t indulge in a bit of ‘gastro-grilling’. Afterall, FtL holds its annual Ramadan BBQ each and every year without fail (see here and here)
And so, to help fire the light of National BBQ Week in your bellies, here’s four online meat delivery services that offer a range of traditional and exotic Halal meats to inspire your inner carnivore.
Established only last year, Halalnivore have already carved out a reputation with a slick online ordering and weekly delivery service (every Thursday with free orders over £80) that offers the country’s Halal community access to high quality steaks (8 varieties), burgers, chops, lamb, and four types of gourmet rubs.
Having personally tried them ourselves last year for our Ramadan BBQ, we can vouch for their high quality.
Halal Exotic Meats
Halal Exotic Meats have the exotic in there for a good reason. What makes them stand out from the others is the impressive list of non-traditional meats they offer ranging from: venison, llama and camel, to poultry that includes ostrich, pheasant, quail, turkey or geese, and even wagyu beef, rose veal and buffalo.
They offer a flat rate delivery fee of £9.00 for all orders to England, Wales and Scotland under £100 on a 1-2 delivery service, as well as pre-12pm delivery for an additional quid.
Abraham Organics claim to be “the only organic Soil Association accredited halal meat producer in the UK”. They offer a good selection of cuts of meat and poultry, which includes duck and goat, as well as a variety of marinated burgers and sausages.
Although they don’t deliver to all parts of the country, they do cover a large area. Be sure to, therefore, check their Postcode Checker before ordering.
As a family-run farm nestled in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside, Willowbrook Farm produce food naturally and sustainably (Tayyib) by adopting an holistic approach that encompasses keeping their own livestock and poultry, and providing them with a non-GM diet, no unnatural chemicals, hormones or routine medication. As part of their reared food, they offer the usual, including meat boxes and a good range of burgers and sausages to slap on your Barbi.
Having visited the farm ourselves for our 2015 Ramadan BBQ, we can attest to the freshness and high quality of their meats.
