BAR­BE­CUE DO’S AND DON’TS

Central and North Burnett Times - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Do make sure your bar­be­cue is hot: If you can hold your hand 6cm above the heat for 3 to 4 sec­onds it’s at a mod­er­ately high tem­per­a­ture, which is per­fect. Do bring your beef to room tem­per­a­ture: Take your beef out of the fridge 10 min­utes be­fore you start, so they cook evenly. Do treat mar­i­nated beef dif­fer­ently: Don’t pour mari­nade over the meat while it’s cook­ing, this makes the meat stew and causes flare-ups. Don’t crowd the bar­be­cue: This re­duces the heat and the beef will be­gin to stew. Don’t turn the beef more than once: This will re­sult in the beef not cook­ing evenly. Don’t use a fork to turn the beef: Use tongs to turn the beef, as a fork will pierce the beef drain­ing it of its juices.
