"It is better to have burnt and lost than never to have barbecued at all" - William Shakespeare

How to set up Barbeque for the party:
1. For this step, all you need is some lighter fluid, a good quality BBQ Charcoal, and some long matchstick. Remember to make sure that you use natural charcoal (like wood charcoal or coconut shell charcoal).
2. Whether it’s electric, gas or a charcoal grill, clean the wire rack well before using it and give it a good scrape to remove any food residue. These are a few bbq techniques to keep in mind before starting your grill. You can oil it to prevent the food to stick. Preheat the grill before placing the skewers on it.
