tried & tested; taking a grilling - charcoal barbecue london
Even those who would rather die than sleep in a tent like to dine outdoors, who can resist the smoky smell of barbecue, fish or vegetables?
The only problem is preparation.
This is the spouting of flames and billowing smoke associated with incompetent outdoor cooking, not the fun of barbecues, which leads to people's prejudice that barbecues are the only way men can cook;
The work was only imposed on them.
We watched the gas barbecue and the charcoal barbecue.
Interestingly, most manufacturers of gas barbecues insist that the desired smoked flavor is not actually the result of burning hard wood, however, the juice in the food drops from the grill to the heat source, then evaporated back through the food.
Unfortunately, this is not true at all for everyone who likes gas cooking.
Our panel of experts can see when blindly tasting meat, fish and vegetables --
Whether the food was cooked with charcoal.
This means that if you like the smell of burnt sausage under the grill, you don't have to splash water on the outdoor grill;
You can cook in the kitchen and eat outside.
The group consists of experienced barbecues
Some chefs are better than others.
They are: Andrew Simpson, Donald Hurd, Andrew Purvis, letiya Wright, Robert Farat, Claire Bright, Philip Yoman and Na
* ASDA instant barbecue 6.
For the three, these instant barbecues from Asda were generally hailed by the panel as a light and "very convenient" way to grill food during a picnic, without much waste of packaging
They prepared a tin paper tray full of charcoal for cooking food.
Letitia Wright says they do a better job than most similar examples, "because they contain more charcoal . ".
"Usually, they have very few things on them, so they go out before you finish cooking.
And 15 p Heinz BBQ sauce. Marvellous -
If you like that.
"Mecmeco SWINGER IIpounds 99 this rather generic charcoal grill on wheels with a metal hood doesn't seem to provide you with" a lot "for your money "(Philippine Guard)
At first, but later proved very popular, one of the reasons is: the food cooked on it tastes better than the food cooked on any gas barbecue.
"Of course, you'll get dirty with charcoal, but it's only half the fun of it," said Andrew Purvis, looking at his blackened hand . ".
"In addition, the Meco Swinger II has features that are superior to similar products: a unique reclining mesh with wooden knobs on the outside of the bottom pot, which means you can save food from the flames that are too vicious
Metal fire rising
The grate on the ash pile can not only prevent the bottom of the barbecue from being burned (
Common barbecue problems)
, But helps to prevent dirty mess as most charcoal barbecues will let the Ashes drop directly from the holes at the bottom to the terrace (
Thanks so much to the testers who finally cleaned it up);
Two adjustable vents, which means you can speed up cooking or slow down cooking by controlling the airflow;
Once you have finished cooking, turning off the same vent will put out the fire and save the charcoal for the next time.
Andrew Simpson called the Americans, gas-
Charbroil CB200, Meccano-
Like he spent more than an hour of exercise, the tester in charge of the instant barbecue drank the wine and made useless comments.
Lytiya Wright said: "Frankly, if I buy this and take it home and then find that all these screws and metal brackets are to be assembled, I have to bring it straight back to the store.
"What is good for it is that this product is strong and durable
Outdoor gas grill-
Once you manage to put it together. Lava rocks (
Small pieces of volcanic material)
Help spread the heat under the grill.
It has a wheeled trolley and a glass panel in its lid that allows you to see the cooking of the food without smoking on your hair.
The Grill also has two layers of grill: When the neat rectangular cover is lifted and the upper grill is automatically raised, the lower grill is easily accessible.
Claire Blezard praised it as "very efficient and compact ".
"The general opinion of the panel is that if you like the form of a sterilized gas barbecue, the barbecue rack represents a very high cost performance;
It is even equipped with its own regulator to connect the gas cylinder, which is missing in most products, and when you go to buy gasoline, the price will increase by about 10 more.
Kadak SKOTTEL BRAAIpounds 69 plus tripodThis portable barbecue in South Africa £ 15 (
"Braai" in Africa ")
Not a grill, but a large, concave, glass-like enamel plate similar to the pan.
It looks like a spaceship on a tripod and comes with its own black nylon suitcase.
The tripod is not essential, but it has stability that enables Skottel Braai to connect to the cylinder with a flexible hose instead of standing on the cylinder with a single rod.
Painted electric blue by designer Naomi depizza as "very cool" and, more importantly, assembled in five minutes --
For products that testers think they want to leave in the car trunk for an impromptu picnic, this is essential.
It will cook fish and stir
Fried vegetables are fine, but you need to buy another version called "Handi Braai" if you want to bake things.
Sunshine legend 4 pounds Australia-375made, gas-
Sunshine legend 4 is the biggest, visually most impressive barbecue we 've tested, with wheels, polished wooden carts and Big Grill (
You can make scones and omelette for brunch on It)
Close to grill.
Beneath the grill is a layer of lava that distributes heat evenly
A closer inspection found that the quality of these products was slightly higher than the Charbroil model.
However, although the instructions warn that the Australian barbecue is cooking slower than the American version, one tester found that the lowest gas environment is still too hot for his carefully marinated vegetables.
Perhaps the key is practice and unwavering attention.
Robert Farrant described it as "a barbecue for an old man," but added, "at least you can invite all the grandchildren around you without worrying about the barbecue space.
"It reminds Claire Blezard of the BBQ used at the awkward family party in Mike Leigh's movie Secrets and Lies --
In other words, go deep into the suburbs.
Myanmar BBQ in Judy Green
This is a very unusual rural flower.
A barbecue is made entirely of terracotta warriors by Burmese craftsmen.
Engraving on the lid can identify specific villages.
It's kind of like a pottery oven, and in our survey, it's the overall winner.
The one we tested was small (
About 12 in diameter)
Only enough food for two people can be baked at a time, but bigger food can also be bought for £ 68. 50.
"I like this very much," Philip Yoman said for all of us . ".
"I think I will buy one to put on the balcony.
"Charcoal is placed at the bottom of the jar under the clay rack with holes;
It's right here, in the middle of the jar, the lid is open, and we cook roast lamb with garlic and rosemary, which takes less time than the traditional oven, creating a delicious smoky flavor.
The Myanmar BBQ looks very nice and can be placed in the garden as an aesthetic attraction.
It comes with some recipes developed by fans who bought barbecues last year and sends their culinary ideas to Judy Green's garden store in north London.
As Andrew Purvis said, "this can only happen in Hampstead.
