When you are barbecuing meat on the grill or on the breakfast plate, it is important that you pre-heat the barbecue before cooking. The instructions for preheating the Weber Q™ and the Weber baby Q™ follow. Roasting Unless otherwise specified, where a recipe in this cooking guide requires you to 'roast', it is recommended that you use the Weber roasting trivet accessory (large roasting trivet for Weber Q™ and small roasting trivet for Weber baby Q™). Using this accessory allows air to convect all around the roast for more even cooking. It also minimises scorching on the base of the roast. To ensure the bottom of the roast is not scorched by the hot grill bars, a sheet of foil is folded to produce a 'heat-shield' of double thickness. (Double thickness creates an air gap between the two layers of foil which assists insulation.) This foil lies on the cooking grill directly below the roasting trivet (see picture next column). When you are roasting meat you must also pre-heat the barbecue. The instructions for pre-heating the Weber Q™ and the Weber baby Q™ follow. See how the foil is double-folded so that it is wide enough to cover that part of the cooking grill that forms the roof over the burner. Cooking on the Weber Q™ Pre-heating and Barbecuing To pre-heat your Weber Q™, open the lid, unfold the work surfaces, and turn the burner control knob to START/HI (A). Press the red ignition button to light the barbecue. Once alight, allow A the gas to run for 10 minutes with the lid closed. Your Weber Q™ is now pre-heated and ready for barbecuing. Leave the burner setting on START/HI throughout the barbecuing process. Pre-heating and Roasting A B 2 To pre-heat your Weber Q™, open the lid, unfold the work surfaces, and turn the burner control knob to START/HI (A). Press the red ignition button to light the barbecue. Once alight, turn the gas down to LOW (B) and allow the gas to run for 10 minutes with the lid closed. Your Weber Q™ is now pre-heated and ready for Weber Q Cookbook 2.qxd 26/08/2004 9:57 AM roasting. Set the gas control knob to a higher setting once you have placed your roast inside. The setting (C) has proven to be a pretty good guide. Remember, there is no C need to turn the meat when roasting, so try not to open the lid unnecessarily. (See also helpful hints, right.) Cooking on the Weber baby Q™ Pre-heating and Barbecuing A B To pre-heat your baby Q™, open the lid and turn the burner control knob to START/HI (A). Press the red ignition button to light the barbecue. Once alight, allow the gas to run for 10 minutes with the lid closed. Your baby Q™ is now preheated and ready for barbecuing. When you are ready to cook your food, make sure that you turn the heat setting down (B). Pre-heating and Roasting To pre-heat your baby Q™, open the lid and turn the burner control knob to START/HI (A). Press the red ignition button to light the barbecue. Once alight, turn the gas down to LOW (B) and allow the gas to run for 10 A minutes with the lid closed. Your baby Q™ is now pre-heated and ready for roasting. You can now place your meat inside the baby Q™. You will not need to set the gas control B Page 5 knob to a higher setting - leave the gas on LOW throughout the roasting process. Remember, there is no need to turn the meat when roasting, so try not to open the lid unnecessarily. (See also helpful hints, below.) Helpful ™hints for the ™Weber Q and baby Q Always cook with the lid closed No matter whether you are cooking a roast, a barbecue or breakfast on the plate, always cook with the lid closed. Why? Firstly, cooking with the lid closed creates natural convection of the air inside the barbecue. This results in more even cooking with more natural juices retained. Secondly, you will achieve outstanding barbecue flavour that you can’t get by cooking with the lid open. This is produced when flavour-giving barbecue smoke is convected all around the meat. Thirdly, cooking times are greatly reduced (about half of what you might expect on an open barbecue), which means you can barbecue the same amount of food in half the time. Lastly, it’s far more convenient and economical. Because less gas is required to cook foods, you don’t need to fill the gas bottle anywhere near as often (a 9kg gas bottle will last for over 40 hours of cooking). Use ‘natural convection’ to get the best results. Remember, these barbecues rely on natural convection to cook food perfectly. To 3 Weber Q Cookbook 2.qxd 26/08/2004 9:57 AM assist convection, try not to cover more than two thirds of the cooking grill at one time. Whilst they will cook with the whole cooking surface covered, the results are far better if you barbecue in two or three batches when feeding a crowd. When roasting, make sure the height of your food fits inside with the lid closed. To allow the air to convect properly you should use an accessory roasting trivet and make sure you have at least 25mm clearance between your food and the lid. As a guide, a number 13 or 14 chicken, a small leg of lamb or a part of a fillet of beef are all okay. How often should you turn the meat? Your Weber Q™ will produce the most impressive food when you let the ‘convection process’ do its work with minimum interruption. For this reason, resist the temptation to continually turn the food. Each time you turn the food you have to raise the lid, allowing the hot air to escape. When barbecuing meat, outstanding results are achieved if you use tongs to turn the meat (once only) half-way through the cooking time. Roasts, on the other hand, should never need turning. Meat thermometer When cooking larger cuts of meat or roasts it’s nice to know when the meat is cooked properly. You can do this by inserting a meat thermometer into the centre of the meat. Do this at about the time you think it should be cooked. Just follow the directions supplied with the thermometer and you will be able to tell when your 4 Page 6 meat is cooked to your liking. Gone are the days when you have to hack into the meat to see if it is cooked. Using sauces and glazes Only apply sauces or glazes that have a high sugar content during the last 10–15 minutes of cooking. If applied too early they will spoil the food, because the sugar in the glaze will caramelise and turn black. Troubleshooting Problem. Meat tastes stewed and lacks expected barbecue flavour. Solution. Temperature is not hot enough. Make sure that you pre-heat your barbecue as directed under ‘barbecuing’ on page 1. Always cook all food with the lid closed. Problem. Food does not cook in the estimated cooking time. Solution. Temperature is not hot enough. Make sure that you pre-heat your barbecue as directed under ‘barbecuing’ on page 1. Always cook all food with the lid closed. Problem. Strong wind blows gas out. Solution. Turn off gas and allow 5 minutes before relighting. If possible move your barbecue to a position that is protected from the wind. If this is not possible face the front of your barbecue into the wind, so that the wind cannot blow into the barbecue through the air-vents on either side. Problem. The gas will not relight after you’ve been cooking. Solution. The barbecue needs to cool down a bit, so that the gas is not carried away from the igniter by heat rising. Turn Weber Q Cookbook 2.qxd 26/08/2004 9:57 AM off the gas and allow 5 minutes before relighting. Problem. Gas doesn’t travel all the way around the burner, therefore, not producing even heating of the grill. Solution. Hole(s) in the burner tube are blocked by something that has fallen from above. This can happen if the barbecue is not sitting on a flat surface. Lift out the cooking grill, and use a paper clip or safety pin to clean out any residue from the burner holes. Problem. Black residue from the cooking grill sticks to the meat. Solution. Ensure that the cooking surface is clean before you start barbecuing. A quality grill brush will remove the stubborn residue, while hot water and detergent will remove the barbecue grease. Practise Weber Q™ safety • Follow the instructions in your Weber Q™ or baby Q™ owner’s manual for safe lighting and operating your barbecue. • Keep your barbecue at least 60cm from any combustible materials, including your house, garage, deck railing, etc. • Never use a barbecue indoors – that includes a garage or enclosed patio. • Never use a barbecue on a table or stand that wobbles, leans, or is in any way unstable. • Keep sleeves and garments at a safe distance from the heat. • If for some reason you ever have a fat fire turn off the gas at the bottle and close the lid then stand away. Never pour water on a fat fire. • Keep children and pets a safe distance Page 7 away from the barbecue when it is hot. • When you’ve finished cooking, turn off the barbecue at the burner control and at the gas bottle. • Before you start cooking check and empty any accumulated fat from the aluminium tray located below the barbecue. Food Safety • Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and hot water before starting any meal preparation and after handling fresh meat, fish, or poultry. • Thoroughly defrost foods in the refrigerator, not on the bench top. • Use a clean spatula or tongs to remove food from the barbecue. • Never place cooked food on the platter that was used to carry the uncooked food to the barbecue. • Always cook minced meats until they are at least medium (71°C internal temperature) and poultry until well done (77°C). Cooking times In this cooking guide each recipe has the estimated cooking time included. In addition the last six pages are a general guide to help you with cooking times for other cuts and thicknesses of meat. Barbecuing and roasting times listed in this guide are approximate. You may have to allow more time or use more heat on cold or windy days. Try using a timer; you’ll find it really handy. It’ll give you a reminder when your barbecue is pre-heated, when your meat needs turning and when the meat is cooked. 5 Weber Q Cookbook 2.qxd 6 26/08/2004 9:57 AM Page 8 Weber Q Cookbook 2.qxd 26/08/2004 9:57 AM Page 9 Meatballs on a Stick Barbecue Makes 25 to 30 small meatballs For the meatballs: 340g minced beef 230g minced pork 1/3 cup breadcrumbs 3 tablespoons milk 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh Italian parsley 1 egg 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard ½ teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme ½ teaspoon dried onion flakes ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper ¼ teaspoon Tabasco sauce For the sauce: 1/3 cup tomato sauce 2 tablespoons mayonnaise ½ teaspoon red wine vinegar Salt to taste Extra-virgin olive oil In a medium bowl, combine all of the meatball ingredients.
