Top 5 Tips For Beginner Barbecuers

Top 5 Tips For Beginner Barbecuers

Now you’ve invested in a  Whistler Grill, it’s time to elevate your grilling and evolve from a barbecue novice to pro. If you’re a beginner barbecuer, there’s some rookie errors to avoid, to make sure you can host the hottest barbecue of the year whilst making the most out of your versatile Whistler! We’re sharing our top 5 tips for beginners to help you along the way this summer. 

Light Your BBQ In Advance 

The biggest mistake rookie grillers make is not firing up the barbecue before guests arrive. Though our gas barbecues take considerably less time to heat up than charcoal competitors, it’s still important to give them around 15 minutes to reach optimal grilling temperature, especially if you’re cooking hefty joints of meat. 

It’s a good idea to get everything chopped and prepped before guests arrive too. You’ll only thank yourself when you have more time to socialise and serve food quickly and effortlessly. A little planning goes a long way!

Don’t Put Your Food On Too Early 

We know how tempting it can be to put  food on the barbecue as soon as it’s switched on when there’s hungry tummies all round. It’s a common mistake to try and cook food on a barbecue that just isn’t hot enough, but it’ll no doubt end up taking even longer. Wait until the barbecue has fully heated up before putting your food on to avoid charred outsides and raw insides. With a little patience, you’ll have grilled goods that are well worth the wait. 

Use Your BBQ To Its Full Potential 

When it comes to barbecuing, the possibilities are endless with your Whistler Grill. Our bespoke range of accessories mean you’ll never tire of grilling. Using your Whistler Grill to its full potential will be sure to make you and your guests fall even more in love with outdoor cooking. 

  • Our Rotisseries offer the advantages of direct roasting meat whilst allowing excess fat and grease to drain off during the rotation process. Our Rotisseries have been custom made for your Whistler Grill meaning it’s never been easier to achieve a juicier, self-basted, and slow-roasted meat.

  • Introduce a Griddle Plate to your grill and effortlessly elevate your barbecuing game. Our Griddle Plates create a versatile, flat cooking surface for you to grill those items that you’re unable to without this accessory, such as eggs and bacon! 

  • Smoker Boxes are a revolutionary way to put a smokey twist on your grilled goods. The Smoker Box sits alongside the cooking grates and allows you to add delicious smoky flavours to your food that you’ll be blown away by. To get started, try our very own premium whisky wood smoking chips. The flavour speaks for itself. 

Squeaky Clean Grilling 

It’s important you keep on top of cleaning your barbecue to keep your Whistler Grill looking shiny and new for years to come. Our barbecues are made to last a lifetime but that doesn’t come without some basic TLC.  A big mistake that rookies make is letting excess food and grease harden before cleaning, making it unnecessarily hard to get that stainless steel gleaming.  

It’s important to wait until the embers have died and the metal has cooled before cleaning, to avoid getting burned. As soon as it’s safe to do so you should clean any food remnants away and get cracking with your cleaning. We’ve expertly crafted our very own range of premium cleaning products to assist you along the way. 

  • Our Stainless Steel Power Cleaner is the superhero of cleaning products. This super spray effortlessly dissolves stubborn fats, proteins and starches quickly and effectively. This product is also suitable for all other water-resistant surfaces, glass, ceramic, granite, marble, and plastic.

Add this easy yet effective cleanser to your cleaning steps to add another layer of protection to the stainless steel. This cleanser should be an essential part of every griller’s cleaning routine.

This sensational spray effortlessly removes all dirt such as oil, grease and fingerprints, making the surface of your barbecue look brand new again whilst adding a layer of protection.
