    The Cooking advice: Warm (oils) on a low beat before brushing on food for grilling. I cannot understand the word 'beat' in this case. Explain, please.

    It’s a typo. It should read “on a low heat”.

    Note that 'b' and 'h' are diagonally neighbouring keys on a standard QWERTY keyboard. This probably explains the typing error.

    The lower case letters also look similar enough that it only takes a tiny spot on the page for an OCR system to mistake an h for a b.
