Barbecuing is a cultural phenomenon that some people partake in year-round. Unfortunately, it’s the season for sporadic rainfall but after all, Spring showers bring May flowers.
Don’t let a little rain prevent you from enjoying a delicious meal prepared right off your Cal Flame BBQ. Of course, it probably won’t be smart to take the task of BBQing in heavy torrential rainfall, however light spring rain should be no problem.
Protect yourself and your BBQ. Try using a large umbrella or a patio to keep yourself and your unit dry. Remember to allow enough free-flowing air to rid of any excesses smoke and carbon monoxide. The last thing you’ll want to do is get lightheaded while cooking over a flame. Also, pay attention to the winds that accompany rainfall, if you have a lighter grill make sure to use weights to keep your unit from toppling over.
Cooking times. If you don’t have an umbrella with you, and prefer to stay warm and comfortable inside, you must remember to constantly check on your meats! Rain is often accompanied by cooler temperatures, which means it’ll take longer for your barbecue to heat up and longer for your meats to cook. Give yourself a little extra time to prepare your meals on a rainy day.
Don’t leave the grill unattended. Beside winds and heavy rainfall, it’s easy to forget you have meats cooking outside on a barbecue. Don’t let your perfect steak burn and ruin your entire day! Constantly check-up on your grill and food to make sure everything is going smoothly. Don’t forget to use a meat thermometer to check for readiness.
