With warmer summer evenings just around the corner, it’s the perfect opportunity to dust off your BBQ and take your culinary skills into the back garden. BBQs are a great way to experiment with different meats, marinades, tasty sides and even veggie BBQ alternatives and we’ve pulled together our top 3 tips for a stress-free experience:
1. Invest in Good Quality BBQ Tools
When faced with the burning coals of a BBQ it’s essential to be equipped with a selection of tools that will help you to grill everything to perfection whilst also staying safe. The Viners Everyday 16 Piece or 3 Piece BBQ Sets feature a selection of high-quality stainless steel BBQ tools that come with a 5-year guarantee.
Long-Handled Tongs are an easy and safe way to move or turn thicker cuts of meat, Corn Forks help to keep your fingers clean and avoid burns whilst a wire brush ensures there is no residue left on the BBQ when you’re done.
Firstly you need to work out how many people are actually attending your BBQ which will then give you a good idea of how much food you need to prepare and cook. Use the stainless steel Skewers from your Everyday 16 Piece BBQ Set to put together a skewer for each guest. You can also cater for any vegetarian or vegan guests by loading the skewers with tasty veggies too. It’s also a good idea to cut and prepare your meat or veggies prior to guests arriving or you placing them on the BBQ. Check out our guide to choosing the right type of knife for your cutting task.
Serve up a selection of crowd pleasers to go alongside your perfectly seared burgers, sausages and kebabs. Large serving bowls filled with fresh salads always go down well at BBQs alongside cold meats, cheese boards and of course lots of bread rolls! Don’t forget to also provide guests with an array of condiments to choose from; mayonnaise, ketchup and BBQ sauce are our trusty favourites!
