Grilling Tips

Before you start grilling all of your food (and after you see these amazing grilling recipes, you will want to!), there are a few tips and tricks you should check out!

  • Prep your grill: Before starting any grilling, you want to make sure that you scrub the grates. This helps to remove any buildup from any past food that you may have been cooking on the grill.
  • Oil the grates: To prevent my food from sticking, I like to lightly brush the grates with oil before placing the ingredients on them. Use a high smoke point oil like canola or vegetable oil.
  • Preheat the grill: We always preheat our ovens, but sometimes we forget to preheat the grill! You want to give your grill enough time to warm up before cooking your food. This helps you have even cooking and helps prevent sticking.
  • Use a meat thermometer: Having a meat thermometer will allow you to keep an eye on the internal temperature for all of these grilling recipes. This will help you avoid undercooking or overcooking your food.
  • Don’t overcrowd the grill: When you add your grilling recipes to the grill, you want to make sure that you give your food enough space allowing air to circulate and ensure even cooking. When you place things too close together or have too many things cooking at once, it can lead to uneven heat distribution and your food won’t cook correctly.
