DIY Brick Built BBQ Recipes
Barbecuing On The DIY Barbecue Grill Set.
Ideal for grilling burgers and steaks but we thought we might try something a little more challenging.
6 mackerel pre marinated in olive oil, butter, lemon, parsley and crushed garlic. With seasoned rolled bacon. Plus cucumber with tomatoes on a skewer.
Using a Lump wood pyramid on the charcoal grid. It was then lit with 2 small BBQ lighters.
While we waited we prepared some bacon, rolled, seasoned and skewered. The cucumber and tomatoes skewers were also prepared.
After around 15 to 20 minutes the charcoal should look like this and was ready to start barbecuing.
We spread the charcoal a little, to ensure heat distribution is evenly spread and to slow down the burning process.
We then put the chrome grill in place and left it a further 10 minutes to "burn in" and get really hot. We added the mackerel which had been pre brushed with a little olive oil to prevent it from sticking to the grill.
Always start barbecuing with the grill furthest away from the charcoal to avoid flare ups
The fresh grilled mackerel was excellent. The choice of cooking heights for the grill, which you must build into the bricks on assembly worked really well and we would have been in trouble without them.
BBQ Grilling Tip
When barbecuing meats always use tongs to move and turn the food, this way you will avoid flames and flare ups. Forks penetrate the meat and fat drips onto the charcoal causing a fierce fire and burns your food.
Rolled bacon seasoned with black pepper and garlic salt is a favourite with mackerel and goes together well.
These barbecues are a good choice for holiday homes because they can be replaced quickly and economically.
Great for designing your own outdoor kitchen and you can also store the grill assembly in the Winter.
