Andy Annat – Harrogate’s King of the Barbecue

Annie Stirk celebrates National Barbecue Week with Crackerjack Barbecue’s Andy Annat whose sizzling skills have him hotfooting around the globe.


It’s a truth universally acknowledged (at least among men) that manhood is measured not by your car but by the size of your barbecue. So it shouldn’t come as any surprise during National Barbecue Week (May 27th-June 2nd) that thousands of chaps will be dusting off their kettles, firepits, bowls, half-barrels and, if the good old British weather is up to its usual tricks, their industrial-sized umbrellas.

The UK is consistently Europe’s leading barbecue nation, hosting more than 120 million barbecues each year. But who can rightly claim to be Britain’s barbecue king? Step forward Yorkshireman Andy Annat and his 14ft long portable smoker, which can cater for up to 2,000 portions.
