Planning This Years BBQ
.Planning This Years BBQ.
Everyone is at that stage where the ‘summer body’ that we all really want, is either going to be ready or not. With it turning the month of may in a few days, it’s crunch time! Speaking of crunch, you’re allowed a cheat day right? and what perfect food to have this summer but a BBQ!! Forgot about the six packs and enjoy a day of well deserved greasy food. We all know it’s the men who have to be in control of the beloved BBQ, but who are we kidding we all know you just stand there with bottle of beer in hand and every now and again flip a burger! Who doesn’t love a barbecue, it just gets everyone into that summertime feeling.
While many of us throw a barbecue for the entertainment factor with music, drinks, the company and of course the food. There’s no need to be ashamed that the only reason you do attend is purely for the food, myself included! If you’re one to plan a gathering, it’s nice to be prepared, find out what you will need to make a barbecue run smoothly. First thing first do you own a bbq? don’t forget about the setting, the chairs, tables, utensils, plates and cups and any further decorations. Whilst most people are happy with a burger and a hot dog covered in ketchup and mustard, why not make it a little more fun and introduce other foods including salsa and tortillas, salads, ribs, kebabs and even deserts. Why not add an activity? a game perhaps, or keep it classy with some ice tea and music. There are many different elements to a fun summer BBQ.
If you are lucky enough to host or even attend a gathering, we still want you to look the part which is why we are going to have a look at the smart yet casual mens clothing items which are perfect for a garden party. Usually these types of events are known as a gathering with friends and family however, we still feel like it’s a great idea to find an outfit which is suitable and fashionable for the occasion. Be sure to check the weather beforehand.
For a daytime occasion, where it’s likely to be sunny, shorts are a popular choice for men. Here at Brother2Brother we stock ideal summer clothing items and accessories within a huge selection of brands. The roll up chino shorts are very versatile, which can be worn with any t-shirt style with that being a polo shirt, button up shirt or a tee to create different outfits for certain occasions. Armani Jeans offer these particular shorts in a range of popular colours from beige, grey to blue. Another well known short is the jogger short, made of sweatpant material these are very comfy and are perfect for a fun afternoon in the sunshine. C.P. Company provide this style of shorts, and again like Armani, with these available in a range of colours, you can team them up with any coloured tee that suits you. Daytime footwear can range from a smart trainer to a fashionable sandal, remember footwear can be classed as an accessory and therefore, completes the outfit. Purchase a pair of the classic rubber flip-flops which Emporio Armani offer, these are perfect for a casual event on a hot day.
If it’s an evening party you’re attending then be aware the temperature can drop slightly meaning a lightweight cotton jacket is ideal. Team this up with a smart yet casual poloshirt like Lyle & Scott and Kenzo provide, these come in a selection of bold and stand out colours and would be ideal with a pair of jeans or even denim shorts. For a perfect evening shoe I would recommend a loafer or a boat shoe. Both available here at Brother2Brother, the designers themselves Thomas Finley for example, provide excellent well detailed loafers and are available in your neutral brown and blue colours making it simple to wear with any outfit to co-ordinate with either that smart or casual dress code.
Smoking is the process of flavoring, cooking, and/or preserving food by exposing it to smoke from burning or smoldering material, most often wood. Meat and fish are the most common smoked foods, though cheeses, vegetables, nuts, and ingredients used to make beverages such as beer or smoked beer are also smoked.
The masonry oven is similar to a smoke pit; it allows for an open flame but cooks more quickly and uses convection to cook. Barbecue-baking can also be done in traditional stove-ovens. It can be used to cook meats, breads and other starches, casseroles, and desserts. It uses direct and indirect heat to surround the food with hot air to cook, and can be basted in much the same manner as grilled foods.
It is possible to braise meats and vegetables in a pot on top of a grill. A gas or electric charbroil grill are the best choices for barbecue-braising, combining dry heat charbroil-grilling directly on a ribbed surface and braising in a broth-filled pot for moist heat. The pot is placed on top of the grill, covered, and allowed to simmer for a few hours. There are two advantages to barbecue-braising; it allows browning of the meat directly on the grill before the braising. It also allows for glazing of meat with sauce and finishing it directly over the fire after the braising. This effectively cooks the meat three times, which results in a soft, textured product that falls off the bone.
