The barbecue is the activity to which one often dedicates himself during his free time to spend pleasant moments in the company of friends. Cooking meat requires passion and patience, it is a method used almost everywhere, and in Italy above all those who have a garden do not renounce this culinary tradition, also because the foods cooked in this way have a different taste. In addition to being a method used in the private environment, it is often found also in restaurants where the form of the barbecue is completely different since it must cook a greater quantity of food. The barbecue must be used outdoors because it often causes smoke to escape.
Origin of the term and types of fuel
The etymology of the word is not clear, but it seems that it derives from the word 'barbacoa', which means barbecue on ship. Today there are several methods of barbecue cooking. At one time the only system was that of cooking meat on a grill with wood used as fuel. Currently, systems have been designed that allow identical cooking with the same taste but in much faster times. It should be emphasized that before roasting the meat, it is necessary to lightly ignite the coal, in the case of a charcoal barbecue, which in any case involves a certain amount of time, which on the other hand does not happen if you use a gas barbecue.
Choice of barbecue
The choice of the best barbecue also depends very much on the position of your garden: if you live in an isolated area, then you will not have to worry about the production of smoke, which instead could be very annoying if, next to our garden, there is a other home. The barbecue with the chimney, made of masonry, is able to overcome this problem, because the smoke before dispersing arrives very high.
On the barbecue can be cooked different dishes, from meat, to vegetables, to fish, and no lid is needed. It is a technique that allows even very fatty meat to be served in a dry manner, because the fat, in direct contact with the fire, tends to melt. For those who do not wish to spend the cost of a barbecue, they can always decide to build one on their own: all they need to do is buy the necessary equipment. Many make it only with a couple of rows of bricks and a leaning grid, below which the fire is lit.
It is important to remember that the barbecue turned in this way, in areas where there are many trees, could cause problems so you should always pay close attention. The care in igniting the barbecue is never too much, and greater security is offered by the gas barbecue.
The garden, through the barbecue, is completed and enriched, even those who have a small space can always decide not to give up this pleasure. In the market there are really many models including those that can be closed, which are very comfortable to use even on the balcony, when the spring days do not yet allow you to stay in the garden.
Garden barbecue: Models
Each barbecue is made with different material. When choosing the model that best meets your needs, you should also consider the size, because a small grill does not allow food to be cooked for more than four people. Some barbecues also have a double grill that can be used to keep the cooked meat warm. Moreover, those who are eager to have a latest generation barbecue in their garden will certainly find the model that meets their tastes. There are some that even allow you to cook chicken on a spit, while others, equipped with a gas stove, allow you to have a small kitchen directly in the garden. The barbecue in addition to ensuring a tasty cooking of food is also synonymous with joy to share with friends.
