Are you an avid home cook? If so, you have probably dabbled in different styles of cooking, from poaching, broiling, frying, sauteing and sous vide (water bath) cooking. Most of us limit our cooking methods to within the kitchen, which is absolutely perfect most times of the year. However, when the sun is out and everyone is keen on a friendly backyard
1. It’s The Healthy Way Of Cooking
Did you know that grilling is one of the healthiest ways you can prepare your meats and vegetables? When you cook your food on a BBQ grill, you can ensure that any excess fat or grease in your food drips off during the cooking process instead of reabsorbing into your food. This is a fantastic way to not just make a darn delicious meal, but one that is just as nourishing for your body as it is for your tastebuds. Grills can remove up to 30% of the fat in your burger patties, sausages, steaks and other cuts of meat, ensuring that your friends and family are eating healthy at your backyard barbecue party!
2. Get Social!
Having a backyard barbecue party is one of the best ways to get friends and family round during the holiday season. Everyone loves a potluck, and you can get each guest to bring a side dish to your barbecue which everyone cat sit down and enjoy under the sun. In fact, barbecue is one of the oldest rituals in human history, with cavemen assembling round a fire in primitive times to cook their meats. It only makes sense that this love for getting together with loved ones – it’s innate in our human nature! Nothing satisfies our need for food and socialising more than a good ol’ backyard barbecue!
3. Keep That Kitchen Clean
One of the bonuses of having a BBQ grill set up in the backyard is how clean it leaves your kitchen after a huge cookup! Forget about spending the entire evening scrubbing pots, pans, baking trays, table tops and floors after a delicious meal – using the barbecue eliminates all these hassles. When it comes to a BBQ grill, all you have to do is give it a good scrub down every so often and bob’s your uncle! Many grills also include a “cleaning” setting these days which helps you burn off any food that has fallen under the grates, making your life even easier! Chances are, if you’re hosting a BBQ party, most people will be fine with using disposable plates and cutlery as well, so that’s one less thing you have to worry about. Of course, if using disposable cutlery and servingware, always opt for biodegradable options that won’t harm the environment!
4. It Just Tastes So Much Better!
Sure, you can make some mighty delicious dishes in the oven, on a stovetop or in an air fryer, but nothing beats the taste a barbecue grill imparts on your food. Grills impart a delicious smoky flavour on veggies, meat and even fruit which people go absolutely crazy for. Food cooked on the grill often retains its juiciness and moisture as well, improving overall flavour, mouthfeel and general deliciousness! We don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a delicious grilled steak or medley of vegetables, so if this isn’t a reason to consider a BBQ grill setup, we don’t know what is!
5. Keep Those Vitamins and Minerals In Your Veggies!
Not many are aware of this, but grilling your vegetables is one of the best ways to ensure they retain as many nutrients and vitamins throughout the cooking process. This is especially true with vegetables that have a lower water content. When cooking veggies on the grill, you don’t require the usage of too many oils or fats, ensuring that your veggies are not only packed with nutrients and vitamins, but are also cooked in the healthiest way possible. Trust me, even vegetarians absolutely love using a BBQ grill to whip up some amazing herbivorous fare!
We hope that this article has inspired you to go out and get yourself a BBQ grill of your own.
