There’s nothing quite like a delicious BBQ to get your taste buds going. But how do you make sure your BBQ is perfect? It all starts with the right firewood. In this blog post, we’ll talk about what kind of wood to use for BBQ, starting a fire, and how to cook your food perfectly! So fire up the grill, and let’s get cooking!
The best wood for BBQ is hardwood, such as ironbark, redgum, or box. Softwoods, such as pine or cedar, are not ideal because they don’t produce a lot of heat. If you’re using a charcoal grill, start your fire by placing the charcoals in the grill and lighting them up. Let the charcoals burn until they’re covered in grey ash – this usually takes about 15 minutes. Once the charcoals are ready, place your grill over them and start cooking!
If you’re using a wood-fired BBQ, the process is slightly different. Start by placing your wood in the fire pit and lighting it up. Then, let the wood burn until it turns into coals – this usually takes 30-60 minutes. Once the wood has turned to coals, place your grill over them and start cooking!
No matter how you’re cooking your BBQ, the key is to make sure the coals are at a moderate temperature before you start cooking. If they’re too hot, your food will burn; if they’re not hot enough, your food won’t cook through. So keep an eye on the coals and adjust as necessary.
And that’s all there is to perfect BBQ! With suitable firewood and a little bit of patience, you’ll be cooking up a delicious meal in no time. So fire up the grill and enjoy!
