A study of 2,000 Brits found they typically host three and attend four cookouts every year.
This means that they're enjoying up to 750 ribs, 882 chicken pieces and 705 pork chops – or the plant-based equivalent - over the course of their lifetime.
When it comes to sides, 838 portions of potato salad will be enjoyed along with 794 corn-on-the-cobs and 838 servings of crisps.
In fact, each time adults host a barbeque, they predict their party gets through six loaves of bread, nine burger buns and eight hot dog rolls – despite only inviting four guests on average.Read more foodGRILLED TO PERFECTION I’m a cooking expert, how to keep your burgers juicy on the BBQ
The research was commissioned by long-life bakery brand Baker Street and found people expect to have four BBQ's this summer.
It wouldn't be a proper British summer without some rain, it turns out more than half have experienced a barbie in the rain, resulting in the party sheltering indoors, under a gazebo, or cooking food in the oven instead.
Baker Street’s commercial director, Chris McLaughlin, said: “Our research shows just how passionate the nation is about having barbeques - no matter what the weather.Most read in LifestyleCHEEKY TRICK I'm midsize - the easy bikini hack that'll make your bum look plumpCURIOUS GEORGE George Stephanopoulos missing from show leaving fans distraughtLIFTED I have big boobs – I never thought boob tape would work on me but this one liftshide and squeak You could be the record holder if you spot the hiding mouse in 20 seconds
“Summer automatically means getting the grill out for many Brits - but we’re all familiar with running indoors due to the unpredictable weather, cooking food in the oven rather than on the barbie and that extra pack of buns for unexpected guests.
“The numbers really put into perspective how many outdoor get togethers we’ll enjoy over the course of our lives and it’s nice to see how many people are gearing up for barbeques this year.
“Despite our best-laid plans, our outdoor occasions can get rained off, which is why our long-life burger buns and hot dog rolls are a summer staple to have in the cupboard."
The study also found when hosting, Brits typically end up with four uneaten sausages, five leftover burger patties and a further five hot dog rolls.
Almost a third admitted they are guilty of buying more food than is needed, spending an average of £78.50 in the process.
However, three in 10 admitted they have attended someone else’s garden gathering without warning.
As a guest, 49 per cent take along alcohol, while 20 per cent arrive with baked goods and 16 per cent provide dips.
Only 17 per cent prefer hosting barbeques with 62 per cent opting to attend someone else's instead.
Classic burgers (53 per cent), hot dogs (44 per cent) and salad (40 per cent) are what people believe are the most ‘staple’ foods to serve.
Yet those polled via OnePoll also like to dish up chicken pieces such as breasts or drumsticks (33 per cent), potato salad (31 per cent) and grilled vegetables (20 per cent).
Chris McLaughlin added: “The research delivered some more surprising stats too, with those in Northern Ireland attending more barbecues in a typical year than anywhere else in the UK – proving we’ll get the grill on no matter the weather.
“With a quarter of Brits planning to have more barbecues than usual this summer, after years of not being able to do so one thing is for sure – we could do with some decent weather.”2Did your favourite take the spot
