Different Methods of Grilling

There are a few different methods of grilling with your gas grill, your charcoal grill, or your bbq smoker.

There is direct grilling, indirect grilling, and smoking.

Let us start with direct grilling.

Direct grilling involves cooking your food inches over the flames. This would be done with thin cuts of meat, fish, shellfish & fruit or vegetables. These foods tend to cook quickly and can benefit from the searing heat of the flames.

With this method of cooking you generally do not need the lid of your cooker, and should stand close watch over the food to make sure it does not burn. You should never leave your grill unattended anyway, but direct grilling takes a much closer watch. You also want to make sure that you have separate heat zones. A heat zone is a way to control temperature. This is so you have an area to direct grill or even sear your food, an area to cook the food, and so you have an area to put food that is already done or almost finished. More or less, your safety zone.

If you are cooking for a larger crowd, you will want three cooking zones. One for searing, one for cooking, and

Central Texas Barbecue

Barbecue is one of the most beloved food items Texas. Texas barbecue has a number of variations that range between different regions of the state. Texas barbecue can be divided into four basic regions, central Texas, East Texas, West Texas and South Texas.

Barbecue holds a special place in the heart of the people of Central Texas. Cities like Lockhart, Taylor and Luling serve some of the best barbecue at some very famous long standing barbecue restaurants. The tradition of serving Central Texas barbecue started way back in the 19th century. Original settlers of the region from Germany and other European countries started the tradition of Central Texas barbecue. The meat markets in those periods used to serve cooked meat on butcher papers.

These settlers established meat markets and according to their culture they used to smoke the leftover meat in an attempt to preserve it for future meals. They smoked these leftover cuts of meat (usually pork and beef) over firewood mostly of pecan or oak and occasionally mesquite.

10 Barbeque Food Safety Essentials You Need To Be Aware Of

If you’re planning a barbeque, then as well as planning what you’re going to eat, you need to think about you’re going to store and prepare it.

Here’s what you need to know.

1. Food poisoning cases double during the summer, as more and more people eat outdoors and decide to have BBQs at the last minute rather than planning well in advance. In addition, drinking alcohol or trying to entertain friends and family can mean that food hygiene standards can accidentally slip.

2. The vast majority of barbeque food poisoning cases are avoidable, and so it’s essential that you prepare your food properly, and stay focused on cooking, rather than showing off your culinary skills.

Can You Build A Homemade Smoker Out Of Wood?

Contrary to popular belief, you can build a smokehouse out of wood and in fact many are still built like that today. To be fair, a lot depends on the size of the smokehouse that you are building, if for example you were trying to build a shoebox smoker out of wood where everything is so compact then the chances are that the thing is going to go up in flames.

Let’s start right at the beginning, my first design was much bigger than a shoebox, probably best described as a wardrobe and even that went up in smoke, so whilst it’s true that you can build a smoker out of wood there are still some things that you need to consider.

Two things really determine whether wood is a suitable building material for a homemade smoker:

  1. How big are you building?
  2. What temperature are you smoking at?

The size issue is pretty easy to resolve and that is that your home-made smoke house would have to be sufficiently big enough to ensure that the heat and smoke source is fully enclosed in fire-retardant materials and insulated at floor level. Provided you take these steps then you really can build a smoke house out

I Barbecue, and You Should Too

BBQ connoisseurs are prone to comparing grilling meat to an almost religious experience. At least the zeal with which they compete and cook with other connoisseurs from around the world would suggest so. The outsider might wonder: what’s the big deal? It’s just BBQ, after all!

Cooking food over an open fire instigates some of the most primeval instincts of man. There is an almost caveman-esque quality to this cooking method. Our ancestors, after all, learned to cook food in similar fashion thousands of years ago before the invention of utensils and functional kitchens.

That creating the perfect BBQ requires years of practice and technical skill also throttles up the competitive instincts in professional barbecuers. If you’ve ever tried to whip up something on the grill, then tasted a perfectly smoked ribbed cooked by a professional BBQ team, you’ll know how technically challenging it can be to cook food with this method.

Let your friends know the date a week or two prior so you don’t have any schedule contradictions and a grill full of food with no guests! Lastly, gather enough tables and cushions so everyone has a place to eat!

3. Food Variation

Creating an adaptable entrée of foods is key to reduce the number of complaints by your guests. If all you’re cooking is brats, hamburgers, and hot dogs, then your neighbor Glenn who happens to be a vegan will not be a happy camper.

BBQ Chicken – How To Barbecue Chicken the Right Way!

How to BBQ chicken In this article I’m going to show you a quick and easy way to barbecue chicken, specifically chicken breasts. I’ll also reveal some real grill master secrets. Throughout this article I will be assuming you are using a gas grill. Let’s get cracking!

First, preheat your grill. We are going to grill using indirect heating. You will be turning on the perimeter flames and turning off the center flames. This will also prevent flare ups, which you definitely don’t want. However it is always a good idea to keep a bottle of water spray for emergencies.

After the grill is preheated you will put your lightly seasoned chicken breasts on the grill with the bone side facing down. There is no need to continually turn over the chicken, as some inexperienced people suggest. This only contributes to drying out your meat and there is nothing worse that dried out chicken, unless of course you are shooting for “chicken jerky!” This is also a good time to add your “smoke packet.” If you are not sure what a smoke packet is, don’t worry about it. We will cover that in a different article.

The factors that affect that final outcome is dependent on a couple things working together:

– Cooking temperature. The fuel source is thus a factor here. There have been many a debate on what is the right fuel. In my opinion, choose what’s convenient, can easily be accessed, and won’t burn a hole in your pocket.

– Radiant heat. The ability to control the heat in your grill is important. Lids, vents and knobs make this happen. Keep this in the back of your mind for later.

– Conduction of heat in the metal grill grate. Important to know when cleaning your grate.

3 Ways To Make Your Food Taste Better

1. Listen For The Noisy Artichoke
You know those baby toys that let out a little squeak when you squeeze them? Turns out those rubber giraffes have something in common with artichokes, says Marcy Smothers, author of Snacks: Adventures in Food, Aisle by Aisle. Smothers spent years amassing all kinds of strange-but-useful tidbits about the foods we eat. She’d heard an old wives’ tale that the best artichokes make noise when you give them a pinch, and she tested the theory to see if it works. Turns out that if these leafy thistles are fresh, they will squeak softly when you hold them close to your ear and press gently from both sides. The sound means they’re well hydrated — which is exactly what you want, whether you’re boiling, steaming, roasting or baking them. And don’t discount artichokes that have white blisters or blotches during the winter months. They’re “frost-kissed,” says Smothers, with a nutty flavor and tender texture.

White vegetables, such as potatoes, mushrooms, turnips, or cabbage, loaded with potassium, magnesium, and fiber.

“The minerals contained in the crop more abundant in roots and tubers,” said Connie M.Weaver, from Purdue University who researched many of the white vegetable nutrition.

Another benefit of the lesser known white vegetables are high levels of satisfaction. The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition says that in the same amount of calories, when compared to dark and bright colored vegetables, white vegetables have a higher satiety index.

But so far there is no definite recommendation regarding the amount of white vegetable that should diasup every day. But you can start by trying to cook vegetables white.
