Bbq Accessories And Necessities}

Submitted by: Paula Gerie

Charcoal briquettes? Sear grate? T-brush? Weber BBQ cover? Can somebody speak English please?! I bet this is what all of you BBQ beginners are thinking, is it not? As with everything else in life, there are accessories and necessities with everything, and a BBQ is no exception. However when there are so many companies offering you the same products at various prices, you genuinely do not know which way to turn, who to believe and where to purchase from. Are you being ripped off? Are you purchasing genuine products? How can you judge the quality of these accessories? Does the type of BBQ we use matter or is this personal choice? These are all questions we generally tend to ask ourselves when making new purchases or are first time buyers to something we have previously had no knowledge about. Weber Accessories Online can help you to make these all-important decisions.

Ok, it is time to put you out of your misery!


The type of BBQ you choose to use is entirely down to personal preference, however you will find people will take a liking to one over another; but the chances are that this decision would have been made as a result of personal experience. Many may lean more towards the Weber One Touch Premium BBQ 57cm. Charcoal is made available in small bags which are then positioned on the tray beneath the grill bars of the BBQ. Surprisingly, the bag, as is, needs to be set alight. This allows the coal to burn consistently and takes up to twenty minutes for the grill to heat to the sought after temperature. The advantage of this is there is very little mess when firing the BBQ up and is not at all complicated, making it simple enough for anyone to do.

Unfortunately yes unfortunately, there is an extensive range of accessories and equipment needed to make your BBQ an ultimate success. Even more frustrating is that different occasions and different meals, yes you guessed it, requires completely different equipment! Oh, joy. Due to the different kinds of BBQs available on the market, regardless of which one you may opt to purchase all BBQs will essentially require a hood, windshield and a spit, none of which actually affect the general running of the BBQ; lets all cheer at once!

Whats next you ask? Fire! And no, not for the fireplace in the sitting room! Currently, coal is the most common type of fuel used to start up a BBQ. The charcoal is available in a variety of formations; briquettes which are more efficient for use or lumpwood which is the cheaper option. However, if you are operating a much larger BBQ, hardwood is generally used for firing these up; unfortunately hardwood is not the most practical for commercial BBQ brands.

Now, if you are new to the world of barbequing, it will most certainly benefit you to know that using utensils with extremely long handles are the way forward in life. These instruments are essential for tending to the food. When having to flip the food from side to side, utensils with long handles will provide a safe distance between yourself and the heat; not the most fashionable accessory at the moment, but a set of gloves will also provide added protection against busy flames. Skewers on the other hand are ideal for cooking kebabs; flat skewers however will be most appropriate as they are able to completely rotate the meat and vegetables.
