Outdoor Grilling Tips
"For the Barbecue!"
Looking for basic outdoor grilling tips? Nothing beats a great barbecue!
Think about it...what better way is there to spend your Sunday
afternoon? With friends and family.
We all stand around the grill with a drink in our hands and catch up on
the latest news. There is nothing quite like it!
What I have been doing the last few years is at least once a
month, I will invite friends to meet up at a specific BBQ
spot. Like the park, beach or near a lake anywhere you can grill!
It's so nice to have a change from your usual back yard. We
meet at different spots each time! It's an inexpensive way to have
loads of fun!!
We bring balls to kick around or a cricket bat for a quick
game or two! The ladies pull up a chair and sit in a circle while the
guys grill the meat.
Trust me next Sunday you're bored sitting at home, don't know
what to do with yourself. Get outdoors and have a grill out!!
Over the years I've been doing this I have a developed a few
tips I'd like to share.

lighter and fire lighters.

• The most important rule when having an outdoor barbecue is to make
sure it is barbecue friendly. (You do not
want to be prosecuted for breaking the law!!)
• Now days it is illegal to grill on certain beaches and parks. Check
with your local community if your are actually allowed to barbecue at
your spot of choice.
• Make sure you choose a spot that wont annoy any other members of the
public, smoke and grilling smells might upset a few people. (only
because you making them hungry!)
• Grill in an area that is clear of any bushes and trees, away from
anything flammable. (no park fires please!)
• Be sure that the kids are playing far away from your burning
barbecue, especially with the cricket bat!
• When grilling, avoid big flare ups by using a spray water bottle.
Spray any flare ups as soon as they occur, keeping your smoke levels
• Once you have finished grilling put out the coals with water and
leave to cool down.
• Clean any rubbish or debris that you might have left behind. Always
dispose of your ash and left over coals in a disignated bin.
