Survey Compares Aussie and English Barbeque Attitudes

GLASGOW, Scotland, Aug. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- As the battle for the Ashes is played out on the cricket pitch, 2,000 English and 2,000 Australians living in England have been questioned on their prowess and behaviours at the barbecue in a poll* commissioned by the AXA PPP healthcare Nutrition and Fitness website ( Despite the predicted British "barbecue summer" being officially rained off this won't prevent 49% of Australians living in England from getting out their grills this weekend to celebrate the 3rd Ashes test.

Barbecue Survey Findings

  • Aussies would happily barbecue in temperatures under 15 degrees C. Only 10% of English said they would do the same, with 67% saying it would need to be at least 20 degrees C first
  • Two thirds of cricket fans holding Barbecue parties during the Ashes series
  • UK based Aussies are planning an average of 4 summer barbecues, the English just 2.5
  • Over half of Aussies expect guests to "BYO" food and drink to their barbecues compared with just 23% of the English
  • 58% of all surveyed think Australians are the better barbecuers
  • Aussies consume nearly two thirds more calories than the English during an average barbecue at 1,695 and 1, 036 respectively and drink an average of 5.8 beers compared with the English 3.7
  • Aussie bravado prevails; over half admit to wearing novelty hats/aprons at the grill, 70% opt for cricket team's colours. Just 30% of English will don a comedy outfit and 40% England kit
  • The English are twilight barbecuers citing 6:00pm, while more Aussies prefer lunchtime 1:00pm - their parties lasting over 1.5hrs longer at 5.57 hours to the English 3.89

Aussie Vs English comparison

AXA PPP healthcare's Nutrition and Fitness behavioural expert Judy James analyses the two nations' barbecue profiles:

The English Barbecuer is relatively timid and status-modest alpha with nocturnal habits, preferring to barbecue in the evening and being no great fan of dressing up to do so - Aussies are much more aggressive and competitively alpha, taking more solo control of the barbie and enjoyment of showmanship and performance.

For the Englishman a Barbie is seen as a chance to up social status by providing food, whilst for Aussies the role is less about power and more about tribal sharing as guests are expected to bring their own to the altar.

The Aussie alpha display is more about demonstrating short bursts of power through physical presence as opposed to the longer-term strategic food-trading of the English barbecue psychology and typology.
