I know that A lot of folks will be out on the grill working hard this weekend. Here are a few things that you will need to make your grilling experience the best that it can be. Follow these steps and your family will be raving over your holiday grilling skills for years to come.
If you want to get the best flavor when grilling charcoal is the way to go! Get your charcoals in the grill, get a fire going and you’re ready to go. Hardwood charcoal usually gives off the best flavor. Briquets that contain lighter fluid will change the flavor of your meat. You should also throw some newspaper in the mix to help get your flames started. Overall, I think charcoal grills give create better tasting food with a great smell.
If you do decide to go with a gas grill, make sure that you have ample propane in your tank. Most propane grills will let you cook more food at a faster pace, and is also more convenient. You can control your temperature with the turn of a dial on a gas gril, and you can still use wood to get that smoky flavor.
Don’t Forget About Your Accessories:
If you’re going to be a grill master you need the right tools and accessories. Having the right tools can separate the men from the boys when standing in front of the grill. It will also make your grilling easier. Make sure you have a pair of quality tongs so you can grab everything on the grill including smaller pieces of meat and vegetables. Also, a spatula is going to be needed to flip your meat. Use a large stainless steel fork to turn over the food that may be a little more difficult. Use a digital thermometer to make sure that your meats are reaching the proper external temperatures. Keep a grill brush handy to make sure that you get all of the extra food and “guck”off of your grill. Grill wipes will come in handy too. After you have brushed everything off of the grill you can use the wipes to help with the clean up process.
Here are a few grilling recipes that you can try if you want to spice up your family barbecue this weekend. Try something different besides the standard burgers and hotdogs.
