Life Hacks for Barbecuing at Home

Barbecuing at home is a fun way to entertain friends and family, but it can be a great deal of work for the host. Fortunately, there are some ingenious tips that can simplify the process and free up your time to enjoy your own party. Next time you’re barbecuing at home, try some of these hacks and see how easy it can be.

  • For quick and easy hamburger patties, divide your beef into the correct portions before freezing. This way, you can have as many or as few burgers as you need at one time.
  • If you’re using a cookbook, use a pants holder to suspend it from the kitchen cabinet. This will keep your hands and your countertops free for other things.
  • Put a thumbprint in the middle of your burgers before cooking them. This will make them cook flat instead of round.
  • For a fun twist, serve your side salads in a bacon bowl. Line the underside of a muffin pan with tin foil, and weave bacon strips to form a basket over the bottom of each muffin cup. Bake in a preheated 400° oven for 10-15 minutes, paying careful attention to make sure they don’t burn.
  • Another great use for a muffin pan is as a serving dish. You can easily present an array of condiments in a muffin tin, and save yourself the hassle of washing several little dishes.
  • The versatile muffin pan also offers an easier method to cook the eggs you’ll use for deviled eggs. Put raw eggs in a mini muffin tin and bake at 325-350 for 30 minutes for eggs that are creamy and easy to peel.
  • Did you know a salad spinner can help you evenly coat wings? After you’ve cooked your wings, toss them into a salad spinner with your wing sauce, and spin it for perfectly coated wings every time.
