Cooking with BBQ Grills & an Outdoor Kitchen in Brisbane – Tips and Tricks

Queensland is made for firing up the barbie and gathering family and friends for outdoor feasts. But whether you’re a seasoned BBQ grills master or a backyard novice, there’s always room to elevate your outdoor cooking. Here at Bayside BBQ’s & Outdoor Centre, we’re passionate about helping you create unforgettable culinary experiences. So, grab your tongs and get ready to sizzle with these top tips and tricks:

Master the Flame

  • Charcoal vs. Gas: The age-old debate! Charcoal delivers that smoky depth, while gas offers convenience and precise control. Choose the fuel that suits your style and menu. Our friendly staff can guide you through the options.
  • Taming the Heat: Learn your grill’s hot zones. Sear steaks over high heat, then move them to indirect heat for even cooking. Use a diffuser plate for delicate items like fish.

Prep Like a Pro

  • Marination Magic: Elevate flavours with marinades! Choose from our delicious pre-made options or whip up your own using fresh herbs, spices, and citrus. Marinate for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for maximum impact.
  • Sharpen Your Tools: Blunt knives are frustrating and unsafe. Keep your knives razor-sharp for effortless slicing and dicing. We stock quality sharpeners and can even recommend professional sharpening services.

Grill Like a Boss

  • Reverse Sear: For succulent, juicy steaks, try the reverse sear method. Start by cooking low and slow over indirect heat, then crank up the heat for a perfect sear and crispy crust.
  • Veggie Delights: Don’t just grill meat! Vegetables like zucchini, capsicum, and eggplant shine on the barbie. Toss them in olive oil, herbs, and a squeeze of lemon for a vibrant and healthy side dish.

Beyond the Basics

  • Smoke it Up: Explore the world of smoking! Add a smoker box to your grill for infusing meats, cheeses, and even vegetables with rich, smoky flavour.
  • Pizza Perfection: Turn your BBQ into a pizza oven with a pizza stone or dedicated pizza attachment. Experiment with different doughs, toppings, and cheeses for endless possibilities.

Bonus Bayside BBQ Tips

  • Clean as You Go: Keep a spray bottle filled with water and white vinegar handy for quick grill cleaning during cooking.
  • Invest in Quality Tools: The right tools make all the difference. From durable tongs and spatulas to grill brushes and thermometers, we have everything you need.
  • Safety First: Remember BBQ safety! Keep a fire extinguisher nearby, never leave the grill unattended, and ensure proper ventilation.
