Cooking oil

I've been cooking on a gas burner and on a Weber Q200 using olive oil. I remember someone on the forum saying olive oil is not necessarily the best oil to use on a BBQ. Couldn't find the post. Bought some grape-seed oil because it is in a glass bottle not plastic. Is grape-seed oil suitable for BBQ ...

Cooking with aluminium

I mostly cook on the Weber grill and breakfast plate or with black iron griddle Sometimes I do a pre marinated roast in a pan but often the marinade burns in the pan and is difficult to clean It would be sensible to cook these marinated roasts in the aluminium pan they come in but my wife is concern...

Breakfast plate problem

The enamel paint is flaking off my Weber Breakfast Plate, it's about two years old It’s only the flat side that is affected the ridged side is as good as new We've put it in the dishwasher a few times but that shouldn't be the cause as we've been doing the same with our Aldi baked enamel casserole d...

Re: BBQ advice - London

Hi mrjack, I use an old Weber Q200 and often cook for six or seven on it without being stressed I've never had a need for a built in thermostat and with your experience cooking on a Weber I doubt if you need one either My brother has an enormous stainless steel BBQ but usually cooks on his Baby Q ev...

Re: BBQ liners

I use an 'Urban Kitchen' BBQ liner on the Weber Q200, directly on the grill Keeps the Weber clean Are these safe to use in the Weber on high heat ? They are made out of teflon and depending on which brand you use they will be safe up to a certain temp. I don't use them. Aiming to keep the bbq clean...

Re: Seasoning new Weber Q grills

Cleaning after cooking is a no no. Weber now advise to leave the gunk on after cooking and give the grill a light wire brush next time you use it, once it's hot. I never put water near the grill though, just a wire brush and a spray of oil before cooking. I'll do that from now on, I wasn't comforta...
