Top grilling tips with eChurrasco

Top Grilling Tips

Now you're sizzling!

  • When grilling meat, poultry or seafood, keep the oil to a minimum. Otherwise you risk flare-ups and excessive smoke from the coals.
  • Using a basting brush to add small amounts of marinade to the food while grilling. But don't serve that leftover marinade with cooked foods, or you could end up with food poisoning.
  • Don't add salt too early in the cooking, as it will draw out the moisture and dry your meats.

Champion chargrilled chicken

  • Insert a small knife or skewer into the inside of the leg to release the juices – if they're clear the chicken is cooked.
  • For added flavour, place several sprigs of fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme directly onto the briquettes while the food is cooking.

Sensational steaks

  • Never cut into a steak while it's on the BBQ to see if it's cooked or not! All those juices will escape and dry out the meat.
  • Use a set of tongs to 'feel the meat'. A rare steak is quite soft to the touch, while a well done steak will feel quite firm.

Fire it up but don't burn

  • Sugar and honey based marinades can burn easily, so cook these foods at a lower temperature and turn them every 20 seconds.

eChurrasco
Fire up by turning the gas ignition on. Yes, it really is that easy with the world's first gas start charcoal BBQ.
Things are already heating up. But you don't need to keep an eye on the charcoal – reward yourself with a cold drink.
Turn the gas off, wait till the briquettes are glowing, then you're off and barbecueing.
Check you have all you need to get grilling – the eChurrasco comes with optional easy-cook skewers, grill plate and fish grill.
When the coals turn white, you know it's time to get cooking. Chargrilled taste without the wait – now you're the hero.
Other BBQ
By the time you've set up your pyramid of briquettes and set the fire starters alight,
5 minutes has passed…
They say a watched kettle never boils. But you're waving your hands over the grill feeling for any sign of heat. Nada.
The kids are getting restless, and everyone else is too busy swatting away flies to wonder why they can't feel the heat.
This is more chilling than sizzling. Meanwhile, the chips and dips have run out and people are eyeing off dessert.
Given most portable BBQs can take up to an hour to heat properly, you've still got around 45 minutes to kill. Somehow.
