Tips for Barbecue
Lubricating before cooking
Before cooking, always grease the barbecue grill with oil (avoiding olive oil, which can rancid and give a bad taste.) The food will come off more easily, which will limit the Deposits on the grid. To apply it, moisten paper towels and place it on the grill with a barbecue clip so that you do not get burned. Never use a brush: it will ignite or melt.
The reflex tray
If you are cooking indirectly, place an aluminum tray in the vat to collect fat and meat juice and limit the contamination in your barbecue. Change the tray regularly and clean the broiler pan, then remove the charred residue.
To save time, clean your gas or coal barbecue (but not electric) when it is hot. It takes 15 seconds to clean a hot grill and 15 minutes when it is cold … If it has cooled, heat it to carbonize the residue and pass the brush.
The right brush
To clean the grill, use a barbecue brush, stainless steel or brass. Depending on your needs, there are several kinds of brushes: long or short handles, or specially
designed to clean between grids.
To thoroughly clean your barbecue, we recommend cleaning it thoroughly once a year with a high-pressure cleaner.
How to effectively clean your barbecue?
Clean the barbecue grill
The barbecue grill is the only item that must be cleaned after each use . Cleaning the grill on your barbecue and removing any traces of burnt fat will prevent you from getting meat stuck to the grill during the next cooking.
No need to invest in all kinds of household products. A good metal brush and elbow grease will be enough to make your grid as new in each use . It is imperative to carry out the cleaning of the grill once the barbecue has finished, and not to wait for the next one. A slightly hot grill will be much easier to clean because the burned fats will attach less.
