4. Check The Heat

Before you start cooking check the heat. The best way to do this is to carefully hold your hand roughly 12cm above the grill and see how long you can hold it for: 6 seconds = low heat, 4 seconds = medium heat, 2 seconds = High heat. 

5. Start it Hot

Ensure your barbecue is hot enough before you start cooking and turn your meat during cooking so that it cooks evenly throughout.
