BBQ Do’s and Don’ts


  • Get everything ready before cooking
  • Brush your grill with olive oil to prevent food sticking
  • Make sure the meat is at room temperature before cooking – you can take it out of the fridge an hour before
  • Let the meat rest for about 5 minutes before cutting into it; it keeps the juices in
  • For extra flavour, baste meat with the leftover marinade while it’s on the grill
  • Use a dry seasoning rub for spice
  • Throw woodchips onto the coals for smokiness
  • Keep your guests entertained – play games whilst the food is cooking
  • Have a bin easily accessible
  • Make sure you provide a drinks cooler


  • Keep the juices in the meat – don’t prod and poke it too much whilst cooking
  • Don’t use the wrong charcoal – make sure you know the difference
  • Time is important! Don’t rush cooking the meat – the longer it cooks for the better it will taste
  • To save the marinade burning off, don’t add it until towards the end of cooking
  • Do not cut the meat open to see if it is cooked – it will dry out
  • Make sure you keep cooked food and raw food completely separate!
  • Keep children and animals protected – don’t let them too close to the barbecue
  • Don’t skewer meats together that cook at different paces
  • Don’t press down on a burger whilst it is cooking on the grill
