Everybody knows BBQ’s are the starts of bright, long summer nights. The smoky smell of the grill is a well acknowledged smell that everybody loves and it is important to consider various factors when choosing the right BBQ for you.

Gas and Charcoal are the two main types of BBQs and most people find it difficult to make a choice between the two options. The gas barbeque is quite convenient because it is easy to use as it comes on with the flick of a switch and cooks the food fast. The temperatures on a gas BBQ can also be controlled as the heat is direct and consistent.

The charcoal BBQ is versatile as the heat is consistent and it is quicker than gas. The most difficult part of using a charcoal BBQ is it can be difficult to light and keep lit. It can be difficult to manage as it can take a while to get the heat regulated.

Here are a few tips for hosting the master BBQ party

Clean, Oiled and Hot

Everyone knows how important it is to keep the BBQ hot, clean and oiled. This will stop the food from sticking and give it the smoky, grill look. 

Spice it up

It is recommended to season before grilling and leave the meats refrigerated before they hit the BBQ. The classics for BBQ seasoning include salt, pepper, lemon, garlic, rosemary and cayenne.

Flip once

When cooking meat on the grill, cooking time will not be as accurate if the meat is flipped constantly. Leave the meat to cook and rotate after at least ninety seconds of cooking.

Final test

For meats like steak, chicken and pork chops, it is advised to poke the meat with your finger to check if it is soft

 The choice of charcoal or gas boils down to individual preferences as some people like to learn how to master the charcoal grill while others want to get the food made as soon as possible so they can enjoy the party.
