IS YOUR BBQ READY FOR AUSTRALIA DAY?
Australia Day is just around the corner and we know that our country will be firing up their BBQ’s to celebrate. Summer is certainly a busy entertaining period, so keeping your barbeque in tip top shape for cooking your party favourites is essential. Here are five top tips to ensure your BBQ gets the TLC it needs to survive this season from Adam Roberts, BBQ expert from Barbeques Galore.
BBQ care tips
- Remove grills/plate(s) from barbecue after cooking and give a good brushing with a hard bristled brush (NOT metal or wire) to remove any excess food, dust or rust spots.
- Wash grill/plate(s) in hot soapy water to remove dust, dirt and to clean the surface areas.
- Using a soft cloth or Chux, apply a solid coating of canola oil to cooking surfaces of the grill.
- Return the grill to the barbeque and heat the barbeque to a high heat, applying several coats of oil to the cooking surface whilst hot until the surface returns to a dark or black colour.
If your grill is very grungy, it might need some extra TLC – try soaking the grill plates in a tub of hot soapy water for several hours. This will soften build up and ease the removal process. Alternatively, if they fit, you can place the grill plates in an empty dishwasher and select the heavy cycle function – then run through the oiling process once cleaned.
