Wood BBQ

Everyone is familiar with a traditional charcoal barbecue, but did you know that there also exists a wood BBQ? With a wood barbecue you use wood as fuel. Barbecook offers two variants of this type of appliance: the Junko wood BBQ and the Rila wood BBQ, two unique models with plenty of possibilities.

How to light a wood BBQ?

Lighting a wood barbecue is just like lighting a fire bowl. You put some kindling and some lighter cubes or wood wool firelighters in the center of the bowl of your wood BBQ. You then build a pyramid of dry wood blocks around it. Light the kindling and firelighters using a match or lighter. Let it burn until the flames have reached a maximum height of 10 to 15 cm. When using the Junko wood BBQ, place the grid, pan or pot so that it just barely touches the fire. Then, just like when using charcoal, you get a glowing mass. After that, it's a matter of keeping a close eye on your fire and always placing blocks where it glows less. The grill session on your wood barbecue can begin!

What are the advantages of a wood BBQ?

The use of a wood BBQ provides a great sense of togetherness and authenticity, because after all this is what our distant ancestors also did: getting together around the wood fire to cook and to talk about life. Cooking over an open fire is exciting and at the same time also very relaxing, because isn't it great that all your guests can gather around the wood barbecue to warm themselves up while you are cooking?
