There are many considerations when designing and installing your outdoor cooking area, but once it is finished, you will realise that the effort, time and resources that you put into planning and installing your outdoor kitchen was definitely worth it.

Kitchens in the outdoors include semi-portable cooking features, which make it easy to prepare and cook meals in your backyard.

Outdoor BBQ from CADAC

Make Memories That Last a Lifetime with Outdoor BBQs

Outdoor BBQ grilling is a fun activity that can include the whole family. Whether you choose a charcoal or gas grill, each variety offers its own distinct advantages and benefits. It is simply a matter of personal preference. Whichever unit you decide on, you are set for a fun outdoor cooking experience with your family and loved ones.

The gas BBQ is renowned for its convenience, a benefit that makes it very appealing for new braai aficionados. It heats up faster than a charcoal grill does and its heat can more easily be adjusted to the desired level. It is also less messy and allows you to enjoy the essence of having a fun time with your family.

The charcoal grill, on the other hand, also offers its own unique benefits. In fact, it is revered for producing the tastiest barbecues and juiciest food. Experienced grillers prefer using charcoal grills, because they know how to effectively control the quantity of charcoal that needs to be added to the grill.

Time Tested Tips for Cleaning Your BBQ and BraaisGrills

Regularly taking the time to clean your BBQ and braais will help ensure that they perform at top level for many years, and that you receive the very best value for your money.

Taking this approach actually makes the clean-up process even more difficult and time consuming. It also goes a long way towards decreasing the lifespan of your braai. So how do you clean your BBQ and braais to make sure that you get the best value for your money? After each use, allow the grill to cool until it is only warm to the touch. Using a wire brush, scrape off all the build-up that has accumulated on the grates. It is best to check the user manual in this regard for specific cleaning requirements.
