Fancy brushing up on your BBQ skills? Seasoned ALDI chefs James Coughlan and Aidan Gilhooly share their top tips for BBQing this summer.


James and Aidan’s BBQ Tips

1. Be prepared. Before you start cooking, make sure you have all your utensils and tools nearby and on standby. That way, you can concentrate on controlling the BBQ.


2. Get your coals on early, ensuring you get them hot and white. Do not rush or start to cook until the heat is consistent. Give yourself plenty of time, stay with your BBQ and observe the food cooking. Thin meats like burgers and chicken can burn fast while meats with bones (chicken wings, thighs, etc.) can burn on the outside while staying raw inside.


3. Make sure you invest in a good food temperature probe. Depending on the ingredients in your marinade, this can make your grill either smoke uncontrollably or food can stick easy. Use thick slices of lemon or citrus on the grill to rest delicate meats and fish on so they don’t stick and crumble. This will also add another dimension of flavour to your food.
