ALL ABOUT GRILLS PORTABLE GRILLS, fitted with wheels, are moveable, but they are usually set up as a permanent or semi-permanent unit. Most modern portable grills use gas and most are fitted with hoods, allowing for covered and uncovered cooking. They are available with between two to eight burners (some with wok burners). Other gadgets available for these grills include interchangeable hotplates and grates, rotisseries, warming racks and a whole range of grilling cookware including roasting dishes with racks and large skewers. KETTLE GRILLS, such as the Weber, have domed lids and are meant to be used in the closed position, although they can be used for quick, uncovered grilling.

The briquettes or coals are placed around the outside perimeter of the bottom grill, surrounding the food being cooked rather than burning…

For direct cooking, heat the grill for about 6-7 minutes (or longer if using wood, briquettes or lump charcoal) and for indirect cooking, heat for about 3–4 minutes (or follow the manufacturer’s instructions). If the grill has been greased after the last use, there should be no need to grease the cooking surface, just lightly oil the foods to be cooked. TEST THE HEAT Make sure the grill is at the temperature required by the recipe before adding the food. A good heat test is to see how long you can hold your hand just above the surface of the grill. It is a very hot fire if you can hold your hand in…
