With any meal the key to perfect cooking is getting the temperature right, this especially applies to grilling on the barbecue.
Too high temperatures = disaster on the grill
How many times have you seen a summer barbecue serving burnt on the outside, raw on the inside sausages or steak that tastes like a piece of dried cardboard?
Most barbecues are seasonal affairs hosted by enthusiastic amateur grill chefs.
Temperature control using Charcoal grills is notoriously difficult even for the professionals which is why 90% of top grill houses use gas BBQs.
We recommend using Calor gas Barbecues not just because are cleaner and safer, but because over 80% of garden chefs cook at much too high a temperature, destroying thier carefully marinaded and seasoned grill treats.
A charcoal grill can reach up to 900°C, great for quickly searing a steak or chop, but continue cooking at that temperature and you burn the outside leaving the inside raw, or end up up with a dried piece of meat or carbonized veg.
Crisp on the outside juicy on the inside Yum
Even with our recommended gas barbecues controllable burners you need to monitor temperatures, for this you need accurate barbecue thermometers.
Our recommended Char-Broil range of grills come with built in thermometers,these only indicate what the grill temperatures are.
We recommend using accurately calibrated barbecue thermometers to keep an eye on your grill temp, you can get good quality ones for under £10.
These are surface mounted and tell you the cooking temperature but not the temperature of the food itself, for this you need an accurate food probe.
Here are some barbecue thermometers we recommend, from a simple carry in the pocket probe to a wireless controlled one you can check remotely while meeting, greeting and feeding your guests. For a rull range of our recommended Barbecues and accessories visit our BBQ Product Page
