Tips & Tricks for the Best BBQ


Don’t forget dessert! Grilling fruit like pineapple, peaches, or bananas caramelizes their natural sugars and creates a deliciously sweet treat. Serve grilled fruit with a scoop of ice cream or a drizzle of honey for a simple yet impressive dessert.


For easy cleanup and flavourful cooking, create foil packets for vegetables, potatoes, or fish. Simply place the ingredients in the centre of a sheet of a sheet of foil, season as desired, fold into a packet, and grill until tender.



After grilling, allow your meat to rest for a few minutes before cutting. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in juicier and more flavourful meat.


Impress your guests by grilling pizza! Roll out pizza dough, brush it with olive oil, and grill it on one side until lightly charred. Flip it over, add your favourite toppings, and grill until the cheese is melted and bubbly.


Once you’ve placed food on the grill, try to resist the urge to constantly flip or move it around. Let it cook undisturbed to develop those delicious grill marks and flavours. Flipping too often can lead to uneven cooking.


For thick cuts of meat, like steaks or pork chops, use the reverse sear method. Start by cooking the meat of indirect heat until it’s almost done, then finish by searing it over high heat to develop a flavourful crust.



To ensure your meat is cooked to perfection, use a meat thermometer. Different types of meat have different ideal internal temperatures.



Cut lemons, limes, or oranges in half and grill them cut-side down. The heat caramelizes the sugars in the fruit, intensifying their flavour and making them a tasty addition to grilled meats, seafood or salads.


Mix equal parts baking soda and water to create a paste, then spread it on the grill grates and let it sit for a few minutes. Scrub with a grill brush to remove stubborn residue and leave your grill clean and ready



Use a spray bottle filled with water to tame flare-ups and prevent excessive charring. Spritz any flames that get too high to control the heat and avoid burning your food.
