There’s nothing better when the weather’s sizzling than to get a few sausages sizzling outside as well.
We’ve already been lucky with the weather this year. In fact, you may have already squeezed in a cheeky barbecue with friends and family.
Hopefully, the weather will hold out and we’ll have plenty more opportunities this summer to cook outside. But you need to prevent your barbecues from going up in flames.
Here are a few of our tips which will help all your future barbecues go off without a hitch.
However, when it comes to cooking good food, you’re on your own.
Keep Your Eyes On The Coal
Whenever you’re cooking anything, you cannot afford to leave it alone. Your barbecue needs your full attention.
That way, you’re on hand to act quickly should something start to go wrong. Plus, you’re unlikely to burn the food if you’re keeping a watchful eye over proceedings.
It also means you’re there to stop children and pets getting too close to the flames so you can stop them from harming themselves.
And that’s why you need to remain on top form until the cooking is finished. So hold off from grabbing a bottle of beer until everyone has food on their plate. You can celebrate what a roaring success your barbecue has been later.
Have A Tundra Spray Near By
Having a small extinguisher close by means you can put out a fire before it causes any harm. It doesn’t matter whether the fire is caused by placing the barbecue too close to the shrubbery, or because the burgers have been cooking for too long.
With a Tundra fire extinguisher, you can quickly extinguish the flames. It’s as easy as spraying your deodorant in the morning—the aerosol spray extinguisher is great to have around.
All you have to do is point and spray. It will put out any fire involving wood, paper, fabrics and oils. It’s perfect to have at home and its compact size means it stores away, ready should you ever need it.
When The Party’s Over
When the food is all cooked, you’ll want to extinguish the barbecue safely. But don’t just pour water over it as you’re likely to get burned by the steam coming off.
Instead, you simply remove the oxygen. You do this by placing the lid back over the barbecue and closing any vents. It will soon burn itself out and start to cool down.
Don’t attempt to start cleaning the grill until it has completely cooled down. Leave it until the next day and just focus on enjoying the rest of your evening with good company.
The washing up can always wait. But warm, sunny summer days won’t.
