I want to learn to BBQ! I bought this big BBQ pit, and bag of the charcoal, and a bottle of that stuff that help the charcoal to catch fire. I have Chicken & Steak. Now I want to learn how to BBQ. Any tips? Keep in mind, I have NEVER done this before.

I love a goos BBQ, I think it is the best way to entertain guests, the last time i went to a BBQ I took along some green prawns from the supermarket and they were just cooked on a hot plate on the BBQ in a simmer typw spicy sauce, they were delicious, really lovely, I believe you can cook bananas in the skin on the BBQ but exactly how I don't know...even crumbed fish fingers I like...

Green prawns are just raw prawns, and the bananas, here is a simple one.. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Extra-Simple-BBQ-Banana/Detail.aspx I guess sausages would have to be the simplest...

What you can do with Chicken is take and soak it in some italian dressing and let it sit for about 4 hours and then when you put it on the grill, take and spread it on both sides ( the italian dressing ) then you will know when the chicken is done i would leave on for about 10 minutes on each side then take a potato and wrap in in tin foil. Then you have a backed potato with your chicken.It is really good. With steak you can do it the same way.Let me know how that works for you and what you think i have more ideas.

Sounds very good, I will pick up some Italian dressing during my next trip to the grocery store. Italian dressing and chicken sounds very good. This is also good on steak? Wow, who would have thought that? Not me, but I will certainly give it a try. You can do a baked potatoe on the grill too? Wow, I have a lot of stuff to learn about this BBQing thing, he he! I hope to BBQ at least once a week and become a better BBQer from it. so far I did chicken with BBQ sauce, it was not the greatest thing I have ever served for dinner, but it certainly wasn't the worst, ha ha ha! I think I added the BBQ sauce a little too early. Next time I try anything with BBQ sauce, I will add it later, and closer to when the meat is actually done. Hey, I heard somewhere you can do corn on the cob on the BBQ too. Any ideas on how to do that? Or how long it takes?
