BBQ Fire Pit Cooking

The process of barbecuing can be quiet long and require a lot of prepping for the food. But the enjoyment you get when watching everyone devouring your food like it is the best food they have ever ate it well worth all the work you put into it.

When it comes to cooking with a barbecue pit you are required to add spice to your foods. In order to do this most people prepare their own marinades, spice rubs, or basting sauces. Some foods that can be cooked on a BBQ pit includes; hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken, pork, sausage, Buffalo wings, hog, or beef.

Mesquite, maple, guava, hickory, cherry, pecan, kiawe, apple, and oak are just to name a few. There are also woods that you should avoid when cooking with your BBQ pit. Those are called conifers and they are woods that come from trees that produce cones and some of those include; Douglas firs, junipers, pines, redwoods, spruces, cypresses, and firs. The reason you avoid these is because they have what we cause resins and tars that produce chemical flavors.

Charcoal and gas can also be used but is not always preferred because most people want the woody flavors sealed in their meats. Remember when cooking with woods that different types of woods require different rates that the woods should be burned at. You control the rate of burn by venting. What that means is the cooling process involves the amount of venting that you do. The more venting the cooler your pit will be. Some people choose to cook with charcoal and wood to combine the flavors for their meats. Do research prior to purchasing the perfect BBQ pit for your satisfaction.
