Expert Tips on Managing your BBQ Fire

When it comes to creating the perfect BBQ, you are going to want to ensure that you have got your foundations ready. Fire management is one of the most basic BBQ skills but also, regarded as one of the most important elements to take note of. Read on to learn more about how best to manage your fire.

Managing a Charcoal Fire

Set aside ample time to start your fire. Don’t rush into cooking a fire that has just started burning. Surprising as it seems, the flames of a fire are not the heat you want to cook. You are looking for the red hot embers, (most times covered in white ash), to be the optimum cooking set up. These embers produce the intense heat you want when it comes to cooking up the perfect steak without burning the entire piece of meat.

Managing a Gas Grill Fire

Similar to a charcoal fire, you don’t want to be cook over an open flame. Most grills nowadays have a covering over the flame which help to intensify the heat. This allows for a more forgiving cooking environment which help to lessen the burnt parts on your meat.

For grills with a hood/cover, don’t be afraid to close the hood to create an “oven” effect which can cook your meat from the top down as well.
