Cooking on the Weber BBQ PLEASE DO NOT USE IT UNDER THE CANOPY OR THE SUN BLIND.
Wheel it onto the terrace or to the back near the utility room. Mind the walls when moving it! If the gas is not on, rotate the top knob on the gas bottle to O = Open. Press the little red button under the valve. The BBQ may not light if it is windy. Keep the lid closed, turn on the left burner and push hard and hold the ignite switch. Then light the others. NOTE: An empty bottle can be changed for a full one (extras behind the villa). Turn the knob on the bottle clockwise to F (Shut) in case a little gas is left. Gas connections turn anti-clockwise or in the reverse direction to other connections! The bottle will be light if empty. (gas is in liquid form in the bottle). PLEASE USE THE WIRE BRUSH TO CLEAN OFF SOME OF THE RESIDUE ON THE GRILLS WHILE THE BBQ IS STILL HOT.
COOKING WITH THE BBQ
Preheat the grill, lid closed, burners on high. 260/290°C (500/550°F) for 5 mins. Adjust the burners to the required heat then wire brush off any food particles, grease etc. There are two ways to cook on the BBQ: Direct heat (Lid open) for food that cooks quickly: burgers, steaks, chops, boneless chicken, fish, shellfish and sliced vegetables. Indirect heat (Lid closed) for larger, tougher foods: roasts, whole chickens, ribs. Place large food on a rack inside a drip pan. Use drippings for gravy or sauce. Use the plancha tray, which is great for small cut vegetables or shrimps and the like (which tend to fall through the grill!).
