Barbeque Grill Reviews:

There are 5 secrets to a great BBQ. Firstly, you need to find the finest ingredients when cooking on gas or charcoal. Kosher salt is the best for taste. Garlic and onions (roasted) always go good with any meal. For ribs, tri-tip, or chicken, it's best to add barbeque sauce towards the last 10 to 15 minutes of grilling to get the best results. For grilling steaks or chops, go with a thicker cut (1 1/2 to 2 inches). Secondly, you need tools. Keep the grill clean by using a quality wire brush (clean it after it heats up as well). You'll need tongs, a spatula, spray bottle and brush for spreading the sauce or marinade evenly. Thirdly, heat is essential to an even finish. Keep the temperature between 350 and 400 degrees. If you are using a smoker, then a lower heat over a longer period of time is sufficient. Next is the flavor. Don't use lighter fluid to start your charcoal, it ruins the overall taste of things. There are various types of charcoals and wood chips that will give your grilling that extra flavor. Of course, sauces or marinades are a great way to bring out even more flavor in the food. Lastly, timing is everything. Don't rush steaks or chicken, they need to cook slower than say hot dogs, hamburgers or seafood. Barbequeing is much like an art and you need to practice to get it right. Make notes each time you successfully make a new item so next time you know what you are doing.
