Anyone can start a grill and cook a decent hamburger. To be a truly awesome griller, you need to know a few grilling tips and we are here to help you! Using our ideas and with a little practice, your grilling skills will be the talk of the neighborhood.
Your equipment is key!
Most awesome grillmasters agree that to cook the best food, you need a great grill. Your grill does not have to be the most expensive one on the market, but you do want to be sure that it is working properly, with an even temperature throughout. Your steaks will not be melt-in-their-mouth delicious if half of it is burned and the other half uncooked.
The perfect set-up makes cooking a breeze.
Be sure to have everything you need close at hand to prevent having to run into the house every few minutes. Seasonings, a spray bottle, spatula and serving plates should all be within easy reach. Use the spray bottle if your fire becomes too high.
A non-stick grill makes cooking even easier.
To make your grill non-stick without using sprays, heat the grill top then rub the cut side of an onion across it several times.
Tin foil can be a great way to make dinner.
Using tin foil is an awesome way to quickly and easily prepare your entire dinner on the grill. Simply cut up all of the food and wrap tightly with foil. Remember to add butter to most recipes to prevent the food from sticking to the foil when it is done.
Remember that meat is not the only thing you can grill!
Purchase a quesadilla grill basket and you can make your favorite quesadillas with the added deliciousness of being grilled! Pizza pans and other stainless steel baskets are also available to make cooking all of your favorite foods easier!
Always make sure your grill is heated enough before putting food on it.
Also, your grill needs to be clean before and after you use it. Even if you cleaned it after you used it the last time, you never know what might have been crawling around on it, so grab a tough brush and scrub that grill top! If you do not have a scrub brush, a ball of aluminum foil will do the trick, too. Clean and hot makes food that you can enjoy.
The internet is full of new recipes to try on the grill. Vegetables and fruits taste awesome after being grilled and your children may even taste them! Desserts can be created, too. The best tip of all is to remember that you do not have to stop grilling when it gets cold! Nothing can break the winter blues as much as the taste of a grilled hamburger!
