Broil King: Being Canadian Recipes

150-canada-recipes.jpg

How will a BBQ be part of your Canada Day celebrations – and most importantly, what are you grilling? To provide some inspiration for your get-together, we have gathered our favourite creations with an ode to regions all across the country. We look to the west for delicious beef, grilled corn, and cedar plank salmon. Grilled lobster and fingerling potatoes take us to the Maritimes, while central Canada provides us with a savoury pulled pork pizza and homemade poutine. And of course, an all-around classic Canadian treat to top off your meal – Bryn’s Mom’s Butter Tarts.

Check out our selection of appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts – there’s something here for every Canada Day barbecue, whether you’re relaxing with your family or joining the whole neighbourhood.

Broil King: HOW DO I LOOK AFTER MY CAST IRON COOKING GRIDS?

Much like a cast iron frying pan, well-maintained cast iron grids can provide years of trouble-free use and prevent food from sticking to your grids. To keep your cast iron grids in top-notch condition, heat your grill to about 400°, turn your burners to low and coat your cooking grids with oil using a towel, basting brush or oil sprayer. Frequent reseasoning of your cast iron grids is always recommended.

Broil King: Smoking Wood Guide

accessory_63215.jpg

Smoking is another seasoning to add to grilled favourites. Like spices, different woods impart very different flavours – from the intense, spicy notes of mesquite and hickory, to the sweet and fragrant notes of apple and cherry.

 

Type Flavour Ideal Meats
Mesquite Pungent, Smoky, Spicy Beef, Pork
Hickory Pungent, Smoky Beef, Lamb, Pork
Whiskey Spicy, Smoky Pork, Poultry, Beef
Maple Sweet, Smoky Pork, Poultry
Pecan Rich, Flavourful Pork, Poultry, Lamb
Cherry Sweet, Smoky Pork, Poultry
Apple Sweet, Smoky Pork, Poultry, Seafood, Cheeses
Alder Mild, Smoky Lamb, Pork
Cedar Bright, Spicy, Smoky Seafood, Cheeses

If you’ve never done any smoking before, don’t overdo it – start with a small amount of wood chips (1/2 cup or so), and soak them in liquid for at least 1/2 hour. Drain the wood chips, and then scatter them directly on top of the smoldering coals.

Broil King Grilling Techniques: Indirect Grilling

The indirect method of grilling is a technique for cooking larger cuts of meat such as roasts or poultry. As the name implies, the food is not grilled directly over the heat but by hot air circulating around the food. This set up means there is no need to turn or baste the food. The result is delicious, worry-free barbecuing with little chance of flare-ups.

In this segment BBQ Naz shows you how to grill using the Indirect method. Indirect cooking is great for cuts of meat that take a while to cook. The indirect, convection oven like way the heat circulates around the oven keep the food moist. Watch and enjoy!

DRIP PAN METHOD

Indirect Cooking - Drip Pan

Juices and drippings fall and mix with the contents of the drip pan. This mixture will vapourize, impart delicious flavours and ensure a moist and succulent roast, chicken or turkey.

To use the drip pan method:

  1. Remove the grids and place the drip pan on top of the heat medium

  2. Pour water or other cooking liquid, such as fruit juice or wine, into the drip pan

  3. Replace the cooking grids

  4. Preheat the grill on HIGH for 10 minutes then adjust the heat to MEDIUM or MEDIUM/LOW

  5. Spray or brush the grids with cooking oil, then place the meat directly on the grids above the drip pan

  6. Close the lid, and sit back and relax as your food becomes infused with delicious flavour

ONE-BURNER METHOD

Indirect Cooking - One Burner

  1. Place a drip pan over the heat medium, under the cooking grids, on the side of the grill where you will be turning off the burner

  2. Preheat the grill on HIGH and then turn off one burner.

  3. Brush or spray the cooking grids with cooking oil.

  4. When grilling beef or pork sear the meat on all sides using the lit side of the grill and then transfer it over to the unlit side.

  5. Regulate the heat setting to maintain your desired temperature, (generally MEDIUM)

  6. This method is wonderful not only for roasts but also for thicker steaks, chops and bone-in cuts of chicken.

Broil King Grilling Techniques: Planking

PLANKING

Another unique and delicious way to grill food is by using a wooden plank. This is a surefire way to get delicious results and wow your dinner guests. The smoke created from the plank sitting directly above a lit burner infuses the meat with unsurpassed grilled flavour.

Broil King Planking

Using a plank is simple:

    1. Soak it in water for at least an hour and pat it dry
    2. Pre-heat your grill on HIGH for 10 minutes
    3. Coat both sides of the plank with olive oil then place the seasoned meat on it
    4. Place the plank on the grill directly over the lit burner and reduce the heat to MEDIUM-LOW
    5. Cook the meat to its desired doneness
    6. Cedar planks are ideal for salmon but don’t be afraid to try other meats with it. Pork goes great on a maple plank and lamb is delicious on alder.

Note: Make sure to be careful while handling the plank after grilling and that it is fully extinguished before discarding.
