How to cook a barbecue?

The growing interest in the diversity of their food, in the culinary traditions of other countries has found a place in Russia. If earlier, when we went out into the countryside, we cooked exclusively kebabs or grilled sausages on sticks over a fire, but now many families, groups of friends, have a barbecue at a picnic. Let's see how to cook a barbecue, and what you need for it.

The main difference between barbecues and kebabs is that pre-prepared meat (fish, sausages) is prepared not on skewers, but on a special grid. In addition, when cooking a barbecue, it is not necessary to use a fire for coals. Barbecues are usually cooked with gas or electric heat, in the American manner.
