How To Enjoy The Perfect BBQ

Under the COVID-19 pandemic, the BBQ pits managed by the National Park still remain closed. BBQ and party lovers are gearing up for the reunion with friends, to embrace the aroma of delicious food and the atmosphere within the outdoor environment. Barbecue is the magic between wood, smoke and meat, so the fuel you use can dramatically affect flavour. Your best bet is to use Biogreen coconut charcoal, which is 100% natural and chemical free, therefore no harmful chemicals are being passed to your food. It is easy to ignite, smokeless and burns uniformly, so there is no need to worry about the fuel while you are enjoying the perfect party.

Here are some secret recipes from the professionals.

Put everything in a stainless-steel pan, bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes. Remove and discard the spice bag, then blend the sauce to a smooth puree.
