Barbecue Steak Recipe

It can be a little scary the first time that people barbecue. Steak prices are very high, and choosing a good piece of meat is not quite as simple as picking any package up at the meat counter in the store. Care must be taken in all stages of preparation for a delicious barbecue steak to arrive at the finished product of your culinary endeavor.

How to choose a good piece of meat:

When shopping for a good piece of meat at the grocery store, find a package that is a nice bright shade of red completely across the meat. Stay away from meats that are beginning to dim in color on the edges because this color shade changing indicates that the meat has been exposed to air for some time, indicating that the package may have been on the shelf for some time. Freshly cut meat is the best to use for a good barbecue steak.


After finding a package of meat that is the right shade of bright red, feel the package for moisture content. In some areas, grocery stores are allowed to add water or preservative to the meat in order to keep it fresh. This extra moisture will cook out of the barbecue steak while it is on the grill and there is no reason to pay extra for that part of the meat package weight. A good steak to barbecue is red, slightly juicy, and very firm to the touch.

How to barbecue steak:

Grill the meat about 3” above the coals or heat; meat that is cooked too quickly will dry out as it is cooking. Salt acts as a sponge that takes all of the juice away from a barbecue steak as it is cooking. If salt must be used, put the salt on after the steak is finished on the grill. For a medium cooked steak that is no longer pink in the middle, cook from 8 to 10 minutes per side for a juicy and flavorful barbecue steak

Why should you clean your Bathroom Scale? Does it really matter if there is a little dirt attached to it? Yes, it does matter! Your bathroom scale stays in the dirtiest corners ever and sees so many dirty feet every day.

With so many people measuring their weight every day on it, it is bound to get dirty and will show you inaccurate measurements.

So, if you don’t want your bathroom scale to display you wrong information, it is important that you keep your scale clean and dirt-free. However, if you’re looking for a new one, then Homeguyd has covered quite a lot of bathroom scales that fit pretty much every user under the sun.

Regular dusting of the Bathroom scale’s surface

One of the best ways to ensure that your scale is clean is by making sure you dust the surface of your scale every day. Dusting will ensure that the dust doesn’t turn to mud when you are stepping on it with wet feet or cleaning it with a wet cloth. Just lightly dust the scale with a dry cloth and make sure that you don’t put too much pressure on it or else you might end up breaking it.

Removing Grime from the Bathroom Scale

There are high chances that your bathroom scale might be covered with a lot of grime since it hasn’t been cleaned for a while and it might be difficult to get rid of this grime with just wiping or dusting. In such cases, you would need to use a window scraper to remove the grime. In case, if there is grime in the crevices or creeks, you will first need to remove this with a toothpick or something else sharp and then wipe it away with a wet cloth.

Regular Cleaning of the Scale

One of the best ways to clean your scale is by regularly cleaning it with a damp lint-free cloth. Just use this cloth to wipe down the surface and if this doesn’t work, then take a vinegar solution to clean the surface of the scale. Make sure that you don’t use any harsh solution as that could ruin the electric coating of the scale and dry your scale quickly after cleaning it with a wet solution.

Keeping the surroundings clean

One of the simplest and easiest ways to clean your scale is by ensuring that you keep your environment clean. This means that you need to keep your bathroom clean and dirt-free and wash your feet whenever you are about to measure your weight. These small considerations will help you in keeping your scale cleaner for a longer period of time.
