Hello fellow giffgaff members,
Welcome to the second of our Run By You challenges, The giffgaff BBQ challenges.
In case you didn't know, or had forgotten, our friend @claw came up with the idea of running some fun and interesting activities throughout the summer. The first, The giffgaff walking challenge, run by @bluemoonbaz was a great success, so well done to everyone that took part.
Well, summer's almost here and I reckon it's time to get the barbecues out and start to think about all the al fresco dining that can be done during the barbecue season.
Have you had a barbecue yet? I've been lucky with the weather down here on the south coast so I've had a couple already this year.
During this fortnight I want us all to share photos of our barbecue parties, swap recipe ideas, share tips and help plan the best barbecue party possible.
I'll be posting a new challenge every 2 or 3 days, so please keep popping back to check out the latest ...
Challenge 1 - BBQ Party Playlist Challenge
To kick things off, I thought it would be a great idea to start by planning the perfect barbecue party music playlist.
No party is complete without music so how about a Spotify Playlist created you you!
Please post your suggestions for the perfect tracks to play at a summer barbecue party and I'll add them to the Spotify Playlist in the post below.
Challenge 2 - Recipe Challenge
No barbecue is complete without some tasty treats to eat!
Personally, I'm a bit tired of the burger and a burnt sausage style of barbecuing, so I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting ideas for foods to cook on the barbecue....

Challenge 3 - Party Games Challenge
Apart from music, and copious amounts of alcohol in some cases, nothing helps get a party started like party games!
What outdoors games do you like to play when your friends and family get together?

Challenge 4 - Hints & Tips Exchange Challenge
Barbecuing can be tricky, especially if you've never done it before, so I thought the fourth BBQ challenge should be all about sharing ideas for the perfect, and safe barbecue.

Challenge 5 - Cocktails / Mocktails Challenge
How about Cocktails!?!
OK, so there will probably be drivers, children, and others that simply don't partake in alcohol, at your barbecue parties, so we don't want to leave anybody out.
How about Cocktails or Mocktails!?!

Challenge 6 - Wet Weather Challenge
With British weather so unpredictable, it pays to have a plan B for when rain interferes with your event.

So the final challenge is upon us, and this one is really straightforward. I want to see your photos...
