How To Enjoy A Barbecue Grill - Articles Surfing
If you have a backyard and an outside patio you will most probably own a barbecue grill. During summer, the barbecue grill is one of the most important cooking instruments. Traditionally, it is the male's job to grill the meat. It must have something to do with our cavemen ancestry that is satisfied by cooking meat on an open flame.
Just having to smell the meat sizzling on the coals is enough to make anyone hungry.
There is a large variety of size and shapes of barbecue grills. For those with small spaces, a table-top grill can grill meat just as well as the larger models.
Prices vary, with the larger stainless steel models going for more than two thousand dollars. The basic function of a barbecue grill is to cook meat. But, some have so many other accessories and additions that they look ready to take off and fly. Some grills also come attached with smoker accessories so the unit can accomplish more than just grilling.
There are grills in all shapes and sizes available that will fit in with not with the taste but also with their needs. One thing you need to ask yourself when looking at grills is: How large a grill do you need? Meat racks can be small, maybe enough to cook two steaks, or large enough to cook for a large party.
You can cook any kind of meat on a barbecue grill, from chicken, beef, and pork, to even fish. Meat flavors can be improved in many different ways. You can choose from many different sauces in which to marinated the meat overnight to add the desired taste. I bet when you put a properly marinated steak on a barbecue, your mouth is already watering.
You can also add different flavorings to the meat on the grill. A quick visit to the grocery store and you can get more flavorings than you could ever use. You can even get spices that are made for a particular kind of meat.
Watch out for flare-ups because they can singe and ruin the meat. Almost all barbecue grills come with a lid. When cooking meat that drips often, keeping the lid closed while cooking will stop the flare up.
Even though a closed lid will reduce flare-ups, you still have to keep an eye on it. Don't just walk away. It's important to know how long to cook a particular kind of meat to the tenderness that you desire. You don't want meat to be underdone and then blushingly having to fire up the barbecue again.
Keep a sharp knife ready to check how cooked the meat is. When you have an idea of the time needed to cook the meat to your requirements, half the worries is gone. Don't overcook the pieces, it tastes bad and looks even worse.
