Bank Holiday BBQ Tips

Friday, August 28, 2015


As it's the bank holiday weekend we're hoping for some great BBQ weather as a result we'd like to share some safety tips from the FSA around BBQs.If you are staycationing this weekend in London and avoiding Notting Hill Carnival we'd like to share our top BBQ tips for food and safety from our resident Kafoodle BBQ Maestro Ron Antoniou:

  1. Be aware of what you are doing, BBQ's are very hot and keep children away from the cooking area.
  2. When lighting the BBQ only use proper firelighters and never use anything like white spirit or any other flammable liquids.
  3. If you want to add a little flavour to the smoke throw in a few cinnamon sticks - and it smells lovely!
  4. Always let the coals to light properly before starting to cook.
  5. Clean your grid with onions no idea why it just feels right and tastes good.
  6. Wrap some sweet potatoes or potatoes and onions in tin foil and place them in with the ash/burnt down coals - it's roast veg with a difference.
  7. Skewers of three different colour peppers, courgette, mushroom, onions and pitted black olives look good and taste great - for extra flavour marinate them in lemon beforehand.
  8. When cooking chicken pieces always have them higher up from the flames than the rest of the food (preferably on a rotating split) make sure they are turned regularly and remember they take longer to cook than the meat.
  9. Seafood done properly, fish and prawns, can taste delicious off a BBQ (just make sure that you keep them away from the meat in case of cross contamination).
  10. Great side dish is BBQ grilled halloumi and grilled figs with a squeeze of lemon.
  11. To end the feast, how about wrapping an unpeeled banana sliced and filled with a chocolate flake in tin foil and leave on the BBQ while eating the main course and whilst the BBQ is settling down for a most delicious pudding.
