It’s probably one of the fastest growing recreational activities today. While the concept of grilling and barbecuing was alien to India up until a few years ago, today the country sees a huge interest in grilling, with BBQ parties and get-togethers being a much favoured way to hang out and entertain friends. We get six of South India’s hot and happening men, who already raise temperatures with their sizzling achievements, to pose with Weber Grills, the company sparking a backyard barbecue revolution with their innovative and state-of-the art grills.
