Bbq Cooking Tips

  • Ensure your BBQ hot plate or grill is hot before you put any meat on.  Meat should sizzle & seal as soon as it is placed on the BBQ.
  • Don’t turn steaks more than once during cooking.  Place steak on hot BBQ; when beads of juice form on the uncooked side you will know it is ready to turn.  Turn the steak and cook to your liking.
  • Don’t cut a steak to see if it is cooked as you will lose the juices.  Lightly press the surface of the steak with tongs – rare steak is soft to the touch; medium steak is firm to the touch; and well-done steak is very firm to the touch.
  • Rest your meat for a few minutes after cooking to allow the juices to settle.
  • Wooden skewers should be soaked in water overnight to minimize burning on the BBQ & metal skewers should be rubbed with oil prior to use to help prevent food from sticking to them.
