Outdoor BBQ Review
The modern cook has a lot of freedom when it comes to how they want to cook. America’s favorite pastime, barbeque, has evolved to allow even the most clueless cooks to get that authentic smoky flavor that is often found on the side of the road.
Also, a minor side note about grilling and barbecue is that they are two VERY different cooking methods. Grilling involves a rapid cooking over direct heat. BBQ involves cooking meat at a low temperature over indirect heat for a long period of time, usually 3+ hours or even all day.
Yes, indoor BBQ is a thing, mainly stemming from the advent of the George Foreman grill. Now, the original is not made for true barbeque, but there are actual grills now that are capable of doing BBQ indoors. You can’t just pick-up an outdoor BBQ, though, unless you want to die a silent, suffocating, slow death.
The pros of cooking indoors are mostly obvious: ability to cook BBQ in an apartment or place without a yard to cook in, and since most people are going to be using electric grills, your BBQ experience will be much simpler.
Cons to indoor BBQ in Singapore will be that you need to have a closer eye on your food, for safety purposes and the end product will never match the best authentic barbeque, no matter how good of a chef you are, but it gets the job done.
Okay, so the benefits of outdoor BBQ are obvious, for anyone looking to be a grill master of their own. The pros and cons of outdoor BBQ come down to what type of grill you are using: is it charcoal or gas.
Charcoal barbeque is the cheapest way to BBQ outdoors and the most authentic way of grilling. The only downsides would be that it takes awhile to get used to cooking with charcoal and it’s easy to screw up perfectly good meat if you’re not paying attention.
Gas BBQ grills are much more expensive, in-general. They are more prone to long-term wear and breaking due to the gas component. However, gas grills are much easier to grill on for beginners, heat is more evenly distributed and is more consistent, requiring less effort.
That’s some barbeque basics if you’re looking to go grill-hunting for the first time. Each person has a different set of expectations and individual preferences when it comes to cooking, so find out what your goals are to BBQ and jump into a whole new world of flavor!
