‘It’s Barbecue Time; 8 Best Grilling Tips!’


Everything tastes better when cooked outside on a grill, and to celebrate the arrival of barbeque season we have put together some helpful tips to get your grilling season up and running!
1. Marinade your meat and let the flavours soak in for a few hours. And why not try adding a little sweetness to the marinade; it can compliment perfectly the savoury flavour of the meat.

2. However you decide to prepare your meat, don’t get into a long-term relationship with it! The fresher your meat, the better, and if you’re not planning on eating it straightaway, refrigerate it within an hour of purchase.

3. Let all meat reach room temperature before grilling.

4. Just like an oven, you must preheat the grill in order to properly and efficiently cook your food.

5. Do not ‘poke’ the food with your finger to see if it is cooked. Use a good thermometer, as this is the only way to guarantee that your meat has been cooked all the way through, thus avoiding the risk of potentially harmful bacteria.

6. Do not ‘dig in’ as soon as your burger, steak or chicken breast comes off the grill; let it sit for five minutes as this gives the internal juices time to merge into the meat properly. Then, when you cut into your meat, the juices will be in your meat and not in a pool on your plate.

7. Veggies like asparagus and peppers are great on the grill. Marinade in olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt & pepper in advance, and then grill until tender and faintly charred.

8. Stay healthy. Instead of than frying onions, bake them in foil parcels on the BBQ; plump for lean protein like fish or turkey breasts; and go for low fat sauces, dressings and relishes.

Not equipped yet? Then give Al Halabi a call! You’ll find a wide range of customised barbeque grills, for home, park or outdoor use, as well as all of the equipment needed to prepare the barbeque, such as skewers, cutting boards, and stainless steel containers to keep the meat hot.

As Oscar Wilde once said: “A good barbecue is popular because it combines the maximum of temptation with the maximum of opportunity.” And if he didn’t say it, he should have!
