We BBQ lovers look forward to summer time since it’s the time when the gas BBQ goes out of storage and into action. Summer means having the best gas BBQs in everyone’s eyes. Before you start grilling, there are a few things you need to do.

Cleaning the BBQ

After you have put your gas grill in storage, it is essential to clean it. Get that scrubber and sponge, and clean any dirt and grease off your grill. Be sure to clean the exterior, the grill grates, the grease tray, the vapour bars, charcoal pit, the burners, lid – basically any part you can see! The end result will be worth the effort!

We have some of our top products that will help you get your BBQ sparkling again! 

Check the Gas

If you’re using a Gas BBQ, be sure to check the gas. Despite the fact that it is not always possible to know how much gas is left in your gas cylinder, if it feels light or empty, then you need to replace it. If you need a new gas cylinder, can pop into Spice Home and Garden to replace the empty cylinder. The last thing you want is to get the gas grill all set up only to realise there is no more gas.

Check the Burners

When your gas BBQ grill has been stored for some time, it is important to test the burners to ensure they are still working. This includes testing the side-burner too – if your BBQ has one. When you are happy that everything is working then it’s time to get cooking.

Buy The Right Charcoal

There are lots of different types of charcoal to choose from. Some burn cleaner and some burn smokier. Some have a woody flavor, while others are more neutral. More important than the scents or flavors, though, is that you select a high-quality charcoal. It’s all down to individual taste so research before you buy. 

What to Cook?

The obvious choice of food to cook on your BBQ probably burgers, sausages, potatoes, and maybe steak. Why not try something new this summer?

Below are some of our staff’s favourite recipe using our popular Sahara 3 Burner Oak Gas BBQ.

  • 1 1/2 pound whole chicken
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp onion powder

This recipe is perfect for the Sahara Poultry Roaster! Prep Time is 15 mins and it serves 4-6 People. Cooking time is 1hr 30 mins/

Preheat your Sahara gas bbq to high heat, with all burners lit.

In a small bowl, combine oil, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, paprika, chili powder, oregano and pepper.

Rub it all over the chicken and inside the chicken cavity.

Using the Sahara Poultry Roaster, place half a can of beer into the can attachment of the roaster. Lower the chicken onto the open can, so that it is sitting upright, with the can in its cavity. Sprinkle more kosher salt and black pepper all over the Chicken.

Place the Roaster in the middle of the gas BBQ and turn off the grills directly under the Roaster, leaving the burners on both sides on (this is known as “indirect heat”).

Reduce the heat to medium, shut the lid and walk away. Allow to cook, without opening the grill lid for at least 45 minutes.

Allow to cook for 1 hour and 30 minutes.
