How to make a good barbecue?

Preparing a good barbecue starts withattention to detail. Here are some basic steps to follow:

  1. Lighting the barbecue: Before starting the barbecue, it is essential to light the charcoal barbecue properly. Be sure to use the environmentally friendly charcoal , suitable for professional catering, and have it expel any toxins produced by combustion, resulting in more even heat.
  2. Preparation of ingredients: Taking the ingredients out of the refrigerator at least an hour before baking is important to ensure that they are at room temperature. This applies to meat as well as fish and vegetables.
  3. Cleaning and pre-heating the grill: A clean, lightly greased grill is essential to prevent food from sticking during cooking. Be sure to preheat the grill so that it is hot and ready to cook the ingredients.
  4. Heat zone management: Creating different heat zones on the grill is essential to manage different types of cooking at the same time. Make sure you have an area without embers to keep warm what is already prepared.
