Some BBQ questions answered:
1. What is the difference between direct and indirect cooking?
Direct cooking on a BBQ is when the food is cooked directly onto the grill or griddle of your Barbecue.
Indirect cooking is achieved when the lid of your BBQ is closed. This takes the heat off the food and by using only the burners at the sides to heat up the inside area – your BBQ now becomes similar to cooking in an indoor oven.
2. What is the best method to clean a Gas Barbecue?
For best results leave all the burners of your Barbecue on high, for five to ten minutes. Then turn off and allow to cool, then simply wipe over with a damp cloth, later coating it with cooking oil. It is always a good idea to use a Barbecue mitt when cleaning to avoid burning yourself. Another tried and tested way is to use a brass bristle wire Barbecue brush.
3. How do I store my Barbecue over the winter months?
The best way to store and protect your BBQ over the winter months is with a cover to protect it from the cold and wet, it will also help to prevent mould and mildew. If you decide to store your Barbecue in a garage or shed, bottles of gas for your Gas Barbecue must be stored outside and you should never move your BBQ with the gas bottle either attached or still on.
4. How do I start a charcoal BBQ?
Either place your coal on top of two or three fire lighters and then simply light it. Or pour ½ a cup of lighting fluid over a layer of charcoal allow to soak for approximately 1 minute and light using a long taper.
When the flames have died down and ash has appeared the coals will turn white then it is time to place your food on the grill.
A few points to think about when purchasing your BBQ are:
