3 hot tips for great grilling!
Grilling season is in full swing. Keep these tips in mind the next time you fire up the coals or propane.
Clean the grid. A little housekeeping makes foods taste better and grilling easier and safer. Clean your grill grid and check the grease tray beneath the grill. Clean it before or after each use.
Cut back on flare-ups. Trim excess fat off of meats to reduce flare-ups on the grill. Keep a spray bottle of water handy to spritz small flare-ups if they occur. You can also carefully move foods to a cooler part of the grill, cover the grill with the lid and close the vents.
Check the temp. Don’t rely on foods being done just because they “look” ready! Keep a thermometer handy and check those burgers before they come off the grill. You’ll need to allow more cooking time on cold or windy days and at higher altitudes, and less time when the weather is very hot.
