My DH and I were just chatting about bringing the BBQ out of the garage. Now that the family have flown the coop, our main BBQ has outgrown us.
We have had various types of BBQing grills over the years and eventually decided that the gas ones were best for us. We have the main one which used to be permanently out on our covered porch and the little gas one which was great for caravanning.
I used my BBQs not only as grills, but as they have lids, also used them as ovens. Veggies, i.e. asparagus, green beans, carrots, potatoes, sweetcorn etc wrapped in pancetta, a splash of EVOO, seasoning and herbs, then wrapped in foil cooked with the lid down, superb, vegetables never tasted so good.
A bit of imagination is all you need. If you are fortunate enough to have your own growing herbs - toss a few sprigs onto the hot grill just before serving up - the aroma stirs up the appetites. I learned not to do this on camp sites - after most of the campers drifted towards us wanting to share 2 rib eye steaks. Fortunately there was usually a surplus of sausages around.
Just a few suggestions, maybe some of our members, readers will pop on the site and tell us about their favourite BBQing tips. Here in Scotland it is almost impossible to plan for a BBQ, if you get the weather to enjoy BBQing - go for it.
