Barbequing 101

First up, make sure you have prepped!
Gather everything you need before you even think about firing up your grill. This step is really important. You don't want to have to leave food on the grill to duck back inside for something you've forgotten, only to return to a charcoal mess.
Pre-cut ingredients,  gather oil, salt & pepper, and BBQ tools and don't forget a clean plate or platter to put your food on once it's cooked.

Your outdoor kitchen is a real asset here; cabinets and draws can hold tools, oil, seasoning, and foil to prevent you from running backwards and forward.

The Flame Game
Next up, think about the ingredients you want to cook and what kind of temperature will get the best barbecue results.
Cooking a chicken breast over a high flame will only end in disaster.
The outside will burn before the inside even starts to cook.
Excellent if you love a rare steak, not so good if you want to avoid salmonella!
Start with a medium flame for most ingredients other than steak, and adjust the flame as your cook.
All inLusso recipes have a flame guide to ensure you cook up a storm and not a charred mess!

Delicate Ingredients 
Ingredients like fish fillets require a more delicate hand when barbecuing them. 
Ensure the fish is well oiled and your barbecue grill plates are clean and adequately heated. 
There are a few options for grilling delicate produce.

1.    Aluminium Foil or Baking PaperYou can use aluminium foil to guard against burning and sticking.
Place the fish fillet onto a piece of foil, wrap it up and place it directly onto the grill. It's a great way to add flavour too. Throw in some aromatics and vegetables.

2. A Baking DishYou can also use a metal baking dish or oven tray as a guard between the flame and the grill and cook directly on the tray.

3.    Silicone BBQ MatsSilicone BBQ mats are widely available in kitchen shops now. Just place it on the grill and barbeque as per usual. Silicone is heat resistant to around 230°C, so you do not need to worry about it burning!
