Barbecue grilling refers to cooking food with charcoal or gas, directly or indirectly over the flame. Ideally food that involves short cooking duration, for example burgers and steaks are best suited for barbecue grilling. The intense heat turns the food brown, all that it requires is turning food a couple of times to facilitate cooking on all sides. The thickness and volume of the meat should ideally decide the method of grilling. Enhance the barbecue grilling process with aromatic wood chips of hickory, alder or fruitwood.
Pork chops, burgers or other items less than 2 inches in thickness are most suitable for grilling over direct heat. Foods with excessive fat, chops and sausages, which may drip, aren't considered for direct grilling. Whole poultry, larger cuts of meat like ribs and roasts do not require direct heat. In such cases, indirect grilling is suitable wherein the fire or heat source is from the sides or around the area where the food is placed for cooking. This comes with a provision to keep a drip tray underneath the food cooking area. Oil and fat that is likely to drip is collected in this tray and helps in avoiding flare ups.
