Spring has arrived, and it’s time to fire up the grill! Here are some tips to get the best results when grilling.
- For better temperature control, consider using a gas grill.
- Instead of soaking wooden skewers in water, save time by using metal skewers.
- Always use a meat thermometer to ensure meats reach a safe internal temperature.
- The more expensive the cut of meat, the less you marinate. Never marinate beef tenderloin, please.
- Just like you preheat your oven, make sure to preheat your grill at least 10-15 minutes before you are ready to put the meat on.
- Don’t use a metal brush to clean your grill. It can scratch the grates, especially if you have ceramic grill grates. Use a nylon brush on the cold grill instead.
- Oil your grates to keep food from sticking. Using tongs, dip paper towels in vegetable oil and coat the grates.
- If you use a charcoal grill, please-for-the-love-of-food, don’t use lighter fluid! This chimney starter is a great alternative!
