Real Food. Real People.

Summer is around the corner and a barbecue is the perfect way to enjoy the upcoming sunny days with your loved ones. However, it’s often overlooked how much work this activity represents and you will need enough time to plan it carefully. For this reason at Great Harvest in Newtonville, we created the following post containing useful advice on creating the perfect summer barbecue.  

Check Your Grill

You should check the condition of your grill, especially if you haven’t used it in a long time. Look carefully for any visible damage and consider testing it, especially if it’s a gas grill. Remember that you should clean your grill thoroughly and remove any burned food and other particles. If you are having some problems with your gas grill, make sure to check the instruction manual or call a specialist. 

Choosing the Meat

Buy fresh meat and avoid using frozen meat. Also look for the cuts that are best for barbeque: thick cuts with a layer of fat, to ensure succulent steaks. Although most guests won’t refuse a juicy steak, you should also have vegetarian options.  


Lighting your grill 15 minutes before you plan to cook is important to ensure the heat is ready. Having a meat thermometer is a good idea, as it will allow you finding out when your meat is cooked. 

These are just some ideas that will make your barbecue easier and avoid any last minute stress, so you and your family can have a wonderful time together. Remember that this summer is the perfect time to create pasta from scratch, so be sure to read our guide on creating pasta dough.
