How to ensure perfect grilling: our top 5 tips

  1. Preheat the barbecue: A hot grill is essential for perfect grill marks. When cooking, aim for medium-high heat.
  2. Oil the grates: To prevent food from sticking. Choose an oil that tolerates higher temperatures before burning, such as vegetable oil.
  3. Get the right tools: Get stainless steel or aluminum tongs, a long-handled stainless steel, wooden or silicone spatula, and a stainless steel bristle brush with a sturdy wooden or plastic handle. For added protection, equip yourself with BBQ gloves and an apron made of materials that protect against heat, such as leather or canvas.
  4. Maintain your equipment on a regular basis: Clean your grills after each use. Brush the grill when it's still a little hot, to remove residues more easily. Don't forget to wash your cooking tools regularly too. Remember to give your grills and tanks a thorough cleaning twice a season.
