When it comes to grilling, firing up the barbecue doesn’t have to be stressful. Even with little experience, you can soon be master of the grill with this helpful guide to manning the outdoor barbecue. Dust off that apron, roll up those sleeves and get ready to wow the pants off your family and friends with delicious and healthy grilled masterpieces.
First things first. Before you venture into the actual preparation of the food, you must make certain that you have all of the correct tools and equipment. If you’re in the market for a new barbecue grill, deciding between charcoal and gas is the first major decision you need to make. Charcoal grills, while generally less expensive and more portable, require more hands on time with starting and maintaining the fire, are a lot messier to clean up after and are harder to keep at a certain temperature. Gas grills give you the hands off approach with its simple push-button ignition and quick heating nature, but will also cost you a bit more up front.
Once you’ve got your trusty barbeque set up and have picked up your needed charcoal briquettes or propane gas tank, you’re ready to take an inventory. Every skilled grill-master must have high-quality utensils in addition to a solid barbecue space. Whether you’ll be grilling your first, juicy steaks or a sweet, sliced pineapple, two pairs of tongs are essential. With multiple tongs, you’re able to save one for your cooked food while preventing cross-contamination by utilizing the other for your raw food.
Everybody loves a good kebab in the summer time. If you really want to impress your guests, consider adding bamboo skewers to your inventory check list, along with a heavy-duty metal spatula and roasting fork, to complete your grilling essentials.
After planning out your menu and picking up your needed food and seasonings, it’s time to fire up the grill! Follow the instructions on getting your barbecue going for whatever grill you picked up to ensure proper ignition and fire safety. Once the fire gets going, make sure that you give your grill at least 15 minutes to heat evenly inside and give it a steady cooking temperature. Luckily, most new barbecue grills have a convenient temperature gauge on the outside of the grill to make finding that optimum heat level easy.
Following these tips to getting that perfect grilling experience will have you a barbecue pro in no time. To learn more about outdoor barbecues in San Diego, please visit this website.
