TOP TIPS FOR BARBECUING

TOP TIPS FOR BARBECUING

The perfect BBQ starts with top-quality ingredients and a little know-how. Here are our top tips to help you get the most out of your delicious produce.  

  1. Have meat at room temperature before cooking – Chefs call this ‘tempering’.
  2. Dry your meat and season the food well before cooking – this will help it to form a crust.
  3. Before cooking, heat the grill and use a wire brush to remove any burnt on food from the previous use.
  4. Oil the grill lightly with vegetable oil if necessary.
  5. Once food is seared and well coloured turn the heat down, or move to a cooler part of the grill to allow it to continue cooking without burning.
  6. Large pieces of meat will cook more evenly when covered.
  7. Don’t crowd the grill plate or food won’t cook evenly and will take longer
  8. Don’t prick meat or fish while cooking or the juice will run out and they will become dry.
  9. Avoid turning the food too often, once should be enough for small items.
  10. Rest meat well once it is removed from the grill – cover loosely with a clean cloth. This will give you a much juicier and more tender result.
