When the day is getting closer or reaching at weekend every week, each of us would probably bring out an idea relaxing themselves due to the high volume of week days’ tiredness. The way of getting outside would be hot and time-consuming like to fish, camp, shop or sport. Another way is staying at home do whatever you want like TV, computer or game et al, but this would be flat and heart-tired at home. So BBQ at home is most people’s priority especially for whom having a house with a big or nice yard, calling some friends or family members to BBQ. Breathing the better air, having nice weekend talk with the ones you love to and enjoying delicious barbecued food, I can’t say this is the best way on weekend but it mixes some advantages from both outside and at home, filling with friends, family, beers and steak smoked smell…. However，don’t’ think too far because always exist a gap between reality and ideals. How to do well in BBQ is a great knowledge deserved for us to explore and practice. Now I would share some tips for you to prepare.
Pay more attentions on the tools
If you need to reach the higher level of barbecue cooker, except the personal experiences, the more you need is the tools. In order to avoid of being harmed by the nasty burns, you’d better use the long handled pair of tongs and denim garden apron, which the tongs can clip the food from the barbecue shelf efficiently and the apron can protect your majority of body. Another tool is the temperature probe, you would accurately know whether the meat being cooked is mature or premature. Moreover, using special brush to add extra flavor to the food would rise up the level, especially for the brush with herbal like thyme and rosemary.
Delicious Meat remember to permeate overnight
Most people would prefer to eat seasoned meat instead of pure original meat or just adding salt. So as to satisfy most people’s preferences and get their appreciations, you’d better permeate 90% of your prepared meat through being injected some flavor and marinated overnight into the box. For instance, they are very popular such as BBQ chicken Things, Beef kebabs or wings et al.
The choice of your charcoal
Selecting charcoal is essential. Lump charcoal’s burn time is short just lasts 1 hour, which is used for a wide range of cooking meat. Furthermore, briquettes would be more longer compared to charcoal, which could reach up to 3 hours burning and used for grilling roasting joints.
The method of cooking
Commonly the method of barbecue mostly we used could be the direct cooking. Its main advantages is that it can create the best high temperature and great conditions. In order to get best delicious flavor for the thin cuts such as steak, fish and sausages, the way should be follow is the direct cooking, which finishs the meat being cooked maturely with the fastest time. Another method of cooking is placing the food next to the heart of heat, which means not directly over. This situation is very similar with the use of oven, slowing cooking time with a lower heat would create different flavor and texture.
Be prepared for the sudden rain or big sunshine
You should backup a big umbrella like parasol cover in case of raining or hot sunshine. Bad weather sometimes comes without any signal and very fast that we can not predict. Don’t let them destroy your nice weekend barbecue party!
Adding some vegetables and balance your food list
Don’t forget to add some plant-based food during barbecue. Absorbing enough plant fiber and nutritional vitamin would help us to decrease the risk of eating too much meat. No doubts that, health is the priority factor we should consider.
