Our Top Tips for your BBQ
1. Don’t cook over a really hot BBQ.
Always turn your BBQ up high to burn off any bugs or residue from your last cooking, then give it a rub down with a wire brush. Reduce to a medium heat to cook for the best results – quality takes time.
2. When cooking meat on a BBQ, don’t keep turning.
Leave it alone! Turn once and only once, this ensures an even cook.
3. Panicked about food poisoning your guests?
If you’re worries about cooking sausages or chicken on a BBQ, our top tip is to pre-cook them in an oven before then simply reheat on the BBQ to get that smokey flavor.
4. Remember, a BBQ isn’t just for a sausage & burger.
Why not extend your skills to slow cooking a chicken or creating beautiful pulled pork. Learning to control the heat is the key to becoming a BBQ King!
5. The juicier the better!
Resting meats after barbecuing is as essential a part of the barbecuing process as any other. This allows the juices to reabsorb and become more tender.
6. Taking the raw meat out of the fridge!
At least 20 minutes before barbecuing gives it long enough to lose its chill and get down to room temperature. If the meat is too cold when it hits the grill there’s a danger it could burn on the outside before it’s cooked through to the middle.
7. Make an insert into the meat to check if it has cooked all the way through.
If you are still unsure get yourself a probe to check the temperature.
8. Marinade, marinade, marinade!
Leave for a few hours, ideally overnight! It’s best to save some marinade when you make, and brush your meat or fish with the marinade every 10 minutes as it cooks. That way it will add moisture, trap the smoke flavour and caramelise gently as it goes.
9. Don’t ruin the vegetables
What you want is that lovely charring along the bars – it looks amazing, and tastes even better. So slice thin, then grill straight away – no oil, no seasoning. Once cooked you can add the flavour in some quality olive oil and a bit of vinegar.
10. Have your kitchen pans prepared as back-up
And finally, be prepared for the weather to turn on you. With British temperatures temperamental to say the least, have your griddle pans and oven prepped to finish off any items that get caught in a sudden downpour.
