How to BBQ

Cuts to Use: sirloin, striploin, fillet, burgers, kebabs

Timing is important to successful barbecuing - always allow time for the barbeque to heat to maximum, the charcoal must be grey, and then time for the food to cook. Marinating and seasoning first adds to the good flavour.

Roasting Tips


Cuts to Use: rib of beef, rolled rib, sirloin, topside, fillet

  • The beef must be aged for a minimum of three weeks.
  • For accuracy when roasting a joint, use a meat thermometer. Push the thermometer into a thick part of the joint without touching the bone. When the thermometer reading shows 65†C (150F) the meat is rare and at 70†C (160†F) it is medium.
  • To prepare a joint for roasting, remove it from the fridge an hour before cooking and spread the fat surface with a mixture of mustard and freshly ground black pepper.
