The use of the lid

Depending on the recipe, you can use the appropriate lid which must be positioned in such a way as not to "kill" the fire due to the lack of oxygen and offer the perfect amount of humidity necessary for cooking the chosen cut of meat. Usually, in common models, the temperature of the barbecue reaches 140°C, if the flask with water is positioned correctly and according to the instructions, the resulting humidity will be perfect, as will the cooking of the meat.

The meat must be placed on the grill close enough to the fire to cook and far enough away so as not to char, even more so if you intend to increase the level of difficulty with a delicious cut of meat that requires a certain amount of moisture. Attention and accuracy in the steps are the secret to carrying out the operation in the best possible way and obtaining delicious dishes worthy of a starred cuisine.

Wood-fired barbecue, version 2.0

Expert grillers and followers of the grillin religion will now say that to be a barbecue it must be wood-fired. True, sometimes. It depends on the wood you use, if you choose waste sticks lit with be paper, it's a bit like being a beginner. If, however, the choice falls on hard, dry woods, the result of careful selection, then we can easily define ourselves as (almost) experts, since the wood is the first step, then you need to know how to light the fire impeccably.

As? Lighting a wood-fired barbecue is a bit like building a pyramid. We start from the centre, and start the fire using the smaller, carefully chosen or broken sticks and then subsequently add the rest of the prepared wood, obviously letting the meat dictate the times and methods, in short, following - once again - the recipe which indicates how and when to “raise” and “lower” the flame.

Classic barbecue rhymes with charcoal

The pyramid is the geometric shape that best goes with the ignition of any type of fire. The idea of ​​using charcoal and the appropriate flammable liquid instead raises the spirits of those who observe the "expert" Sunday griller with attention and a hint of concern. The use of charcoal also allows you to keep the fire and temperature constant for cooking the chosen cuts of meat and presents itself as an excellent solution for those who want to venture into the magical world of humidity. The last winning piece that makes charcoal inexorably rise to the podium is the achievement of a constant cooking temperature. All it takes is 5 minutes - more or less - and you can move on to phase two.

Barbecue for beginners

The electric is the hybrid barbecue that master grillers consider to be a commercial device. It presents itself as a perfect solution for those who have small spaces - such as a humble balcony - and want to enjoy this type of cooking. However, it is necessary to maintain secrecy and avoid confrontation with a follower of grilling so as not to be banned from any group or party. The results that can be obtained from the electric barbecue are good, perhaps not very exciting since it is a simple knob that determines the power of the "fire" and not the skilled and in-depth knowledge of the person holding the tongs in their hand. In short, yes but also no.

The idea of ​​the electric barbecue finds a wide margin of satisfaction among those who have to clean and clean everything since it is enough to wait for the coil to cool, and with a wipe of the sponge it looks almost new. Nice yes, but barbecue is something else.
