A BBQ is the epitome of summer however as this season is set to be a little different this year. Masterchef All-Star, Lynton Tapp has shared how he enjoys the quintessential Aussie indoor BBQ with a twist, to inspire families as they continue to live, work and play from home.
These indoor BBQ tips are also perfect to save your BBQ when unexpected summer thundershowers hit. It’s also a great way to get the authentic taste of BBQ during colder weather.
1. Get a Good Grill Pan
Likely you already know this trick if you live in an apartment without grilling capabilities, but a grill pan can really come in handy to replicate those sear marks
2. Grab a Sharp Knife
Besides grilling, preparing your produce is the most important part and a sharp, durable knife is a must have.

3. A Digital Thermometer
I can almost picture the look on your guests face when you carve the centre piece and your steak is overcooked. A thermometer cuts out any guess work when cooking and ensures perfect ‘doneness’ each time.
4. Add Some Smoke
Enhance your indoor BBQ by bringing quintessential flavours to your cooking. Not every ingredient that’s “smoked” tastes the same as something that’s been near actual smoke but including those in a marinade or rub will add to the flavour of whatever you’re cooking. Try using smoked paprika, cumin or chipotle to add smoky notes to your dish.
5. A Bar-B Mate
Lastly, I recommend a solid spatula. A spatula keeps your hands a safe distance from the flames when turning the burgers along with being sturdy enough to lift your whole roast without bending because your mates are too busy at the snacks table.
Oh, I almost forgot, my 6th tip is to dress smart. Nobody wants their amazing food to be accompanied by a shabby looking chef.
