Our Top 10 Do’s and Don’ts to keep your BBQ simple and tasty…
Do:Use a meat thermometer to make sure your dishes are cooked all the way through!
Don’t:Overwhelm yourself by doing too many dishes. Repeat after me: You are not Jamie Oliver
Do:Take the pressure of yourself by asking your guests to contribute a cold dish.
Don’t:Clean your BBQ after use…may seem counterintuitive but leaving that old meat grease on the grill will actually protect it from rust!
Do:Clean your BBQ before use…you’ll need to scrub off all the muck you left on there last time!
Don’t:Be afraid to make unusual meat choices. Try swapping pork ribs for lamb ones, slathered in a delicious minty yoghurt dip.
Do:Use herbs such as rosemary as edible skewers.
Don’t:Limit BBQs to the evening- you haven’t lived until you’ve eaten a bacon sarnie hot off the barbecue!
Do:Cook directly on the embers- corn on the cob is particularly delicious.
Don’t:Worry so much about everything being perfectly presented that you forget the main point of a BBQ; to get drunk outside with your mates, and enjoy the (rare) sunny English summer!
