BBQ BBQ Cooking Tips!
  • When using a meat thermometer, placed into the thickest part of the muscle, 130 F/55 Cindicates the meat is pink, 140 F/60 C, the meat is part way brown, pink in the middle and juicy; 150 F/65 Cmeans the meat is evenly browned, well done and fairly juicy.
  • A hinged grill basket comes in handy for frequently turned food such as hamburgers, shrimp and hot dogs. The basket can be adjusted to hold different quantities.
  • 4oz/115 gof hamburger per person is a good guide to use when judging proportions.
  • Remove a roast from the grill when it is several degrees below the temperature you prefer. The roast will continue to cook.
  • When cooking fatty foods on the grill, tilt the grill slightly toward you. This way the fat will run to the edge of the grid instead of dripping onto the coals, causing flare-ups and smoke.
  • For spit cooking, arrange the roast so that the bottom turns toward you. The fire should be placed at the back of the roast with a drip pan in the front. Constant basting is not necessary.
  • If you plan to salt your meat, do so prior to placing on the grill. Salting food while it is on the grill can cause toughness.
  • Hold your palm over the grill and count seconds. If you are forced to remove your hand after 3 seconds, the fire is about 350-400 F/180-200 C, perfect for steaks and chops.

Grilling Fruit in Foil:

It's wonderful to be able to prepare your complete meal on the bbq - you can spend all your time with your family and friends instead of inside in the kitchen! Grilled fruit is a light 'summery' dessert that can be prepared in advance and placed on the grill at the perfect time for a special, mmm, mmm good treat ... especially with ice cream, sherbet or frozen yogurt on the side! Smile

Wrapping fruit in foil before grilling eliminates the smoky flavour. Serve with grilled meats or as a unique barbecue dessert.
