A sunny day calls for a great outdoor barbecue grill party. When you have invited your friends for a grill party, you must have very functional grilling equipment. An outdoor barbecue is a great fun. You and your visitors will enjoy conversations while taking turns in making marinades, brushing the meat, placing them over the grid and flipping it from one side to the other. Everyone is involved in making the main dish. That is why barbecue is appreciated by almost everyone in the party.
The first type of a good outdoor barbecue grill is the pellet grill. Aside from being so affordable, the fuel is also much more affordable than other types of grill. The difficult stage is the startup fire. Just think of it has your first camping experience where your first task is to make a fire. Remember the excitement to felt when you made your first spark, first smoke and then the big flame. That is how pellet grill works. You have to consider the time of making a flame and generating a stable heat. That would take about 30 minutes on the average. You must also know what food should be placed directly on the heat and what not to place over it. Grilling is a technique that needs knowledge of which one cooks first and which one is last. The best thing about pellet or wood grilling is the smoky taste. It is the authentic grilled taste. But there are other woods that have better tasting smoke over the others. You have to know what wood gives off awful tasting smoke to keep your food from having funny taste.
The second type of grilling is the charcoal grill. It is almost as good as pellet. It is just less smoky so the taste is a little bit less flavorful compared to pellet grilling. Charcoal also produces flame faster than pellets do. Gas grilling is the third type that is best outdoors. It can also be used indoors but, you must have a large space to accommodate the large body of the gas grill and the tank that tags along with it. Gas grills are actually complicated grills. It carries a lot of other cooking kits that you can use. That is why, you can never find a gas grill that is as small as a charcoal grill or pellet grill.
The fourth type is the portable grill. Portable grill is best for travelling. If you have an out of town barbecue party or camping in the woods, this is the right grill to keep. Portable grill can use charcoal or propane as fuel. Whatever suits you, the main advantage is the handiness of this grill. Same tastes of authentic grilled food will be achieved with either of the fuel. Another type, and the fifth one, is the ancient cooking technique where you have to look around for firewood. It is such an exciting task with friends. Camping and looking for firewood is a call for adventure lovers. This type of grilling will not only give you the authentic grilled taste but also the authentic experience of how grilling is originally done.
There are five best grill types. Choose your barbecue party theme and what grilling type will fit you and your friends' definition of adventure.

Beat Winter Boredom: Throw an Outdoor Après-Ski or Sledding Party

Published

on

The slopes are the place to be in the wintertime, from Mammoth and Big Bear in Southern California, to Big Sky in Montana, to Stowe, Vermont, and many places in between. Even Mankato, Minnesota, has a ski resort. (Don’t believe me? Google Mount Kato.)

Snowboarding, skating, and sledding are options, of course, as is cross-country skiing. What all these activities have in common is they get you outside and moving. An added advantage is that all are relatively safe to practice while the pandemic is active, being both social and independent pursuits. In other words, it’s easy to maintain safe distances between yourself and your mates.

As a reward for getting off the couch, we propose an outdoor après ski party. Pronounced “ah-pray skee,” it’s a French term for “after ski.” It’s that sweet spot between an afternoon (or day) of invigorating activity and dinner. Or maybe it is dinner. You can interpret it loosely.

In the Swiss Alps, a day shooshing down the mountainside might be celebrated with raclette—essentially, roasted cheese, partially melted near a fire, then scraped onto bread. I was obsessed with raclette when I was a child. I didn’t know the proper name, but was beguiled by this passage in the classic book “Heidi” by Johanna Spyri:

“When the kettle was boiling, the old man put a large piece of cheese on a long iron fork, and held it over the fire, turning it to and fro, till it was golden-brown on all sides. Heidi had watched him eagerly. Suddenly she ran to the cupboard. When her grandfather brought a pot and the toasted cheese to the table, he found it already nicely set with two plates and two knives and the bread in the middle. Heidi had seen the things in the cupboard and knew that they would be needed for the meal.”

As you can imagine, the brick of Velveeta in the family refrigerator fell a bit short of my expectations.

Which is why Steven’s recipe for A New Raclette so intrigued me. It appears here for the first time, but will be featured during a new episode of Project Fire when the show begins airing this spring. (Contact your local public television station to make sure they intend to carry the show.)

Like the classic raclette, it is served with small potatoes and cornichon (small cucumber pickles), but takes things further. You know Steven! This rendition features a terrific product, Rougette Bonfire Marinated Grilling Cheeses. If you can’t find them, substitute another grilling cheese like halloumi. (For more on cheeses that can be grilled, click here.)

Other main course options for your party could include nachos, brats, kebabs, or anything that cooks fairly quickly and can be eaten easily by potentially mittened guests. A portable campstove/fire pit like this one, which burns propane, wood, or charcoal, ensures you can cook in style. But there are a number of small grills we like, including Weber’s Smoky Joe and Lodge’s Sportsman hibachi.

For beverages, consider beer, wine, mulled wine, or hot toddies.
