We who struggle to produce good quality food from Barbeque might be wondering whether cooking this way is too difficult. Is it possible to produce good tasting food while cooking outdoors?
The answer is clear that it is possible to have good food from BBQ. The reason why we know is because professional chefs regularly produce beautiful food in this way. So why does it seem so difficult for amateur cooks to replicate this food?
Part of the reason is that we often fail to understand how barbeque equipment works. This is a big problem and not only limited to those who buy the latest top of Barbeque Weber.
This is a problem for those of us who cook with charcoal or gas. If we don’t understand how the equipment works and the part of the cooking surface gets the hottest then it is very difficult to produce the right results.
Obviously there is a need for a little experiment and error here. Before you start cooking on your grill, take the time to see how it works and how the temperature varies. Getting the right understanding will help you cook better food.
One reason why professionals can provide food with a standard that is consistently high is because they often have many exercises. This gives us another pointer for how we might expect to improve.
The more we cook using barbeques, the more knowledge and experience we get. In essence, this is no different from other cooking forms.
The key to producing better food is to know your equipment well and be prepared to practice to get more experience. When you become more experienced in cooking this way, you will find that you will also get confidence.
