Now that we are at that time of year where the weather is starting to perk up, you may be looking forward to hosting BBQ’s. Some of us were unable to spend time with our loved ones last summer, which means many of the BBQ’s that usually bring us all happiness were unable to go ahead. Now that we can see the people that we care about, you may be wanting to plan a fantastic BBQ for all of your family, and you may have also noticed that the BBQ that you have neglected for the last year is no longer usable.
Before you go ahead and buy a brand new propane or electric grill, we recommend that you take natural gas grills into consideration. There are a number of fantastic foods that you can make using a gas grill, but before we get into that, we will look further into what a natural gas grill is.
What is a natural gas grill?
A natural gas grill cooks your food exactly like a standard BBQ. The main difference is instead of having to use charcoal or propane, a natural gas grill uses fuel that is made up of hydrocarbons to cook the food. Natural gas grills can be much more cost effective than your standard BBQ grill and you always have the certainty that you won’t run out of gas while cooking, as natural gas grills simply cannot run out of fuel. If you are interested in owning a natural gas grill for the next BBQ season, then you can look online for reviews on a range of the best natural gas grills available to purchases right now. Once you have a better idea of which grill is best for you, then you can buy one ahead of your next BBQ.
Now that you have a better understanding of what a natural gas grill is, here are some tasty foods that you can cook using one.
When you think of a BBQ, the first thing that you probably think of is meat. However, many people forget that roasted vegetables can be absolutely delicious. If you are someone that is expecting a lot of guests at your next BBQ, then we recommend that you use your natural gas cooker to cook some delicious vegetable kebabs. You can use essentially any vegetable that you want on your kebabs and some of the most popular vegetables used on a kebab are: Mushrooms, aubergines and peppers. If seasoned and sauced correctly, these are delicious once taken off the BBQ.
Another BBQ classic that absolutely everyone adores is corn. Everyone loves a cob of corn at a BBQ and once roasted and smothered in butter, they are an absolute crowd pleaser. Don’t make the rookie mistake of not boiling your corn before you BBQ it because nobody likes sinking their teeth into rock hard corn on the cob.
There is nothing better than chicken wings that have a crispy skin. However, when you cook your wings in the fryer they often feel very greasy and when you cook them in the oven, they don’t feel crisp enough. Cooking your wings on the grill is a great way to get the crispy skin without having to deal with excessive grease. When cooking your chicken wings on the grill, you can also continue to season them, which means that you can produce flavoursome food that is bound to impress all of your BBQ guests.
A lot of people make the mistake of precooking their bacon before the BBQ, but nobody likes having to eat cold bacon on top of their burgers. Bacon takes up very little room on your grill and so it is easy to cook alongside the main meat that you will be eating. This means that you can have delicious crispy bacon on top of your burger.
Grilling bacon makes it taste delicious and is a lot healthier than frying the bacon up before you eat it as you don’t need to add oil to bacon that is cooked on the grill. We recommend that you try wrapping some of the meats you are cooking in bacon, as this will make it taste much better.
