Barbecuing is a delightful summer ritual that's bound to make great memories. How to create the best barbecue? Keep the barbecue grill clean before and after use. Here are some tips...

Clean the barbecue grill.
For hygiene reasons, the grill should be cleaned before and after use (for storage). Use baking soda on a slightly wet or damp brush to clean the grills. Scrub well and rinse. If possible try to repeat the process twice or even thrice.

Baking soda not handy?
Try crunching a piece of aluminum foil and use this to scrub the grills. A steel brush might also be used, just remember to rinse the grills afterwards.

Light easy.
Lighting a barbecue grill is easy if you know what to do. One of the best ways to light a grill is to use bellows. What's a bellow? Actually, it is a contraption that supplies oxygen to charcoal. This ensures that the charcoal will easily light up. Unfortunately, bellows are difficult to source. In the Philippines, a long, hollow bamboo tube can be used to blow air into live coals. Otherwise, a fan or even a hair dryer might just do the trick.

No charcoal fluid? Dont fret.
Use thin cardboard instead. Just shred them to bits, place underneath the charcoal and light. Waxed paper might also come in handy. Coat ordinary paper with wax drippings and use these. It might take some time to light up, but once ignited will produce a steady flame.

Location, location, location.
There are several considerations as to the best place to put a grill. It should be placed on level ground for instance. It should also be placed some distance from buildings and plantings; and should be sheltered from the wind. Also, try not to let children near a grill.

Other tips.
While barbecuing, always keep a bucket of water near you. After all, you never know if a fire-related accident might occur. If water is not an option, a box of baking soda might come in handy as well.

Lastly, never leave a barbecue unattended.
If the fire has gone out though, do not just spray lighting fluid on it and put a match to it - start anew instead. Also, never move a lit barbecue grill as moving a lit grill may cause it to tip over and cause severe burns to the person manning the grill and the people around it.
