Grilling is perfect for the weekend. Definitely when the weather is great and the beverages are tasty.
I am not going to preach about the best dry rub, marinade or sauce. Just a few tips to help you master the grill.
- Use your grill brush before you put something on the hot grill. When you are turning your food or adding more, again USE YOUR GRILL BRUSH. This will keep items from sticking to the grates. The grill brush isn’t just for cleaning the grill when your are done cooking.
- Whether gas or briquettes, have one side on a high heat and one side on a low. This way thicker cuts of meat or pork along with bone in chicken can be seared on the high heat for a few minutes per side, then cooked on the low heat to avoid burnt chicken.
- Barbeque sauce is for finishing only or as a sauce on the side! That means don’t marinate with a barbeque sauce; there is typically sugar or high fructose corn syrup in the bbq sauce, which burns quickly over a high temp.
Then again the dog has to eat too, so burn a piece for old times sake and let Fido enjoy!
