If you’re gathering friends round the firepit this summer, a BBQ is the best way to keep them satisfied. You simply can’t beat the authentic smokiness from a BBQ, but it isn’t easy to get a perfect result.

There’s always the risk of undercooking the middle of your meat but burning the outside when doing a BBQ. But this worry can be easily put to rest when using a digital thermometer. Not only will it tell you when your meat is done, but you can leave it to do its thing and set an alarm for when it reaches your chosen temperature.
This gives you more time to spend with your guests and less time checking the meat again and again and being unsure if it’s ready or not.
Marinating is the easiest way to give your food an extra flavourful kick. However, when cooking on the BBQ, the flames and smokiness can easily take over from your marinade – making it almost a waste of time. But, if you baste your meat with the same marinade whilst you cook, you’re giving that extra flavour the chance to shine amongst the smokiness.
Next time you marinade your meat for a BBQ, make sure to save any leftovers and use a basting brush to glaze your food while it grills.
