Barbecuing Tips for Newbies


Summer is right around the corner, and it is high time you started learning how to grill. Yes, you. There are a ton of people out there who haven’t a clue what to do when it comes to grilling. You probably don’t even have the guts to get over there and light that barbecue up. Well, there is nothing to be afraid of or ashamed of. However, it is always better to know what to do in case your services are ever needed by your group of friends. If you are ever in the mood for a barbecue this way you can always rely on yourself to make it for you. Now, the first thing you will do is buy yourself a grill. The choice lies between two kinds: charcoal grills and gas grills. If you’re a newbie to the game and you really aren’t a fan of the carcinogens in charcoal (this is the traditional way), it might be the better option to get yourself a gas-powered grill instead.

How to use your new barbecue

If you want to get started cooking the Best Steak Melbourne has ever seen, let’s get some basics out of the way. Don’t instantly get started by putting the coals in if you are using a charcoal grill. Make sure you empty out all of the ashes that are left over from your last session first. Preheating is important. You can turn on a gas grill rather easily and light it up. For a charcoal grill, you will need a starter. NEVER light a charcoal grill using a lighter fluid or accelerant of any kind.

While it does make the process faster, it can also impart that taste of lighter fluid to the food you eat. We are pretty sure that the Best Steak Melbourne residents make doesn’t taste of a dash of kerosene either. Let the grill heat up for about half an hour before actually placing any meat on it. Use a wire brush to scrape off the remnants of the last session and then wipe it off with an oiled cloth.

What do I grill?

The basics are completely fine. Everyone makes steaks and hamburgers, but you can also make things like hot dogs, sandwiches, pizza, and a whole host of other food items that you didn’t even think about. Remember that you have to clean your grill before putting food on the next time, because you do not want to be left with a disgusting plate that has some leftover fat from three weeks ago sizzling on your BLT sandwich.
