In the United States, everyone loves to barbeque. Not everyone is an expert, and for the novice griller, it is important that you understand that grilling is practically an art form and it takes time to perfect it. The important thing is that you learn from your mistakes and that you take the advice of others who have been in the same situation at one point in their life.
Tips on Grilling
The first thing that you should do is to spray your grill with a non-stick spray made for BBQ grills specifically. This will assist you by allowing you to turn your grilled vegetables or meat without the risk of tearing and leaving the best part behind to roach of the rack. If you do not pre-spray your grill, you risk tearing your veggies causing them to lose their juices, become dried out, and spoiling an otherwise beautiful get-together.
It is crucial to the outcome of your meat and vegetables that you do not put it on the grill before it is hot enough. This will cause your meat to become dry and possibly burn. When you are using a charcoal grill, it is very important to let the coals turn gray and let the lighter fluid burn off. Failing to do so will result in food that possibly comes out burnt and taste like lighter fluid.
Cooking with lighter fluid has its good points and bad points. The grill will heat up faster; however, the food you grill will have a different flavor. This is not necessarily a bad thing, and if you choose not to use lighter fluid, you may be in for a very frustrating experience, because it is almost impossible to light charcoal without the lighter fluid.
Meat must be prepared before you put it on the grill. This is a very important step in being a successful griller. The same goes for your veggies taking care to properly prepare them beforehand will lead to a more favorable outcome and the enhanced flavor makes it well worth it.
When grilling meat thoroughly thawing it out is necessary before grilling, bring it to room temperature is also an imperative. Remember to thaw meat out in the refrigerator or in the microwave. Never let it sit out on the counter, you are inviting food poisoning and trust us your guest will remember in a very unpleasant way not to show up at your next cook out.
Always remember to place cooked foods on a clean platter, and never use the same utensil that you used to handle the meat when it was raw. You could be setting yourself up for disaster. Also, remember to wash your hands before and after handling any raw meat. You will also want to wash all vegetables before cooking to remove any uninvited visitors to your cookout.
