It’s grilling time in Tennessee and here’s 5 ways to improve your grilling!
My husband is an excellent griller. He knows his way around a good grill. Char-Broil Kettleman Grill would be a great grill that’s reasonably priced for $129 at Lowes or online. It has some great features for a new griller. It has more control over temperature, flare ups and clean up. I need that since I’m so new to grilling. It also has a wide stance and heavy-gauge steel legs that add stability and make it easy to move around.
I’m a so so griller. But my husband knows what he’s doing and I’m just kind of winging it. So I thought if it is beneficial to me it might be beneficial to others to know about ways to improve your grilling. But first check out this video and learn more about the Kettleman grill.
And now the 5 Ways to improve your grilling.
- One way to improve your grilling is to marinate it. When you marinate your meat you are protecting yourself from some of the carcinogens that are found in grilled meat. The acidic marinades really help with this. Anything that has beer, citric juice or vinegar in it is a good marinade. Make sure you let it marinade for a few hours.
- Don’t put cold meat on a cold grill. Let your grill heat up for about 20 minutes and then put your meat on there to grill more evenly.
- Oil up the food or the grill. Do one or the other to see better-grilled food. You can wet a paper towel with oil and wet the grill grate before it is lit. Or you can put oil on the meat itself to keep it from sticking to the grate.
- Leave room for breathing! My husband loves to put his charcoal on one side and cook the meat on the other side. This just allows the heat to circulate and cook the food so evenly. It really does make for a yummy meal when cooked this way. If you’ve not tried grilling this way you must!
- Only flip your meat once. I’m the worst offender about flipping my meat quite a few times. Ideally you should put your meat on let it cook and flip it to cook on the other side one time!
