Join @CommonCentsMom and I as we co-host this week’s #CDNmoney twitter chat with tips & tricks on how to BBQ on a Budget!
Hollie has shared some of her favourite BBQ tips in her blog post on Common Cents Mom, and I’m all about “harnessing the heat” as seen in this Instagram post last spring:

This meal used 5 minutes of propane with one burner on medium heat. Christa Clips shares easy steps on how to "harness the heat" and BBQ for less!

May 2013: I know me. And “me” isn’t likely going to cook tomorrow night. In addition to our family meal, I cooked a second meal on the BBQ tonight, almost entirely after turning off the burners.

  • Broccoli with butter and spices wrapped in foil took about half an hour, turning once.
  • Chicken breasts directly on the grill about 7 min/side while the BBQ was still at 500 from the first round of cooking.
  • Sliced sweet potato and onion basted with Soya sauce on each of 3 flips needed an extra little punch of flame to crisp up since I’d lifted the lid so many times.
  • Total propane sent on this meal: 5 minutes medium on one burner.
