To get the most out of your aluminium foil trays during National BBQ Week, here are our top tips:

  1. Prepping the Trays

    Before adding your food, lightly coat the trays with oil or cooking spray to prevent sticking. This step is especially important for delicate items like fish or vegetables.

  2. Layering Ingredients

    When cooking multiple ingredients together, place items with similar cooking times in the same tray. For instance, combine vegetables that cook at similar rates to avoid overcooking or undercooking some components.

  3. Creating Foil Packets

    For a steam-cooked effect, create foil packets by placing food in the centre of a piece of aluminium foil, then folding the edges to seal. This method is ideal for fish, shrimp, and even fruit-based desserts.

  4. Monitoring Cooking Times

    Since aluminium trays can speed up cooking times due to their heat conductivity, keep an eye on your food to prevent overcooking. Use a meat thermometer to ensure proteins reach safe internal temperatures.

  5. Reusing Trays

    We are all for sustainability, so why not consider cleaning and reusing aluminium trays when possible? Rinse and gently scrub with warm, soapy water, then dry thoroughly before the next use.

By incorporating aluminium foil trays into your BBQ cooking routine, you can enjoy a more convenient, flavourful, and hassle-free grilling experience.

This National BBQ Week, elevate your outdoor cooking with these versatile tools and savour the joys of delicious, perfectly cooked BBQ treats with friends and family.
