By now, your weekends are probably full of the amazing aromas from your neighbors’ backyard grills. Summer is made for barbecuing and there’s no end of terrific recipes you can adapt for your backyard grill. Even though you might consider yourself to be somewhat of a grill master, you could always improve your game by adapting these terrific grilling tips:
Oil Your Grill
The best time to clean your grill is when it is hot. You should always have a wire brush handy to scrape off any debris before you start cooking. Once you’ve given your grill a good scraping, you might want to oil it up while it is still hot and before you place food on there. The best way to do this is soak a paper towel in vegetable or olive oil. Then use your tongs to rub it over the rack. Don’t ever use cooking spray on a hot grill because it will flame up.
Avoid cross contamination
Just as in your kitchen, you’ll be cooking with raw food out on your grill. That means you need to avoid cross contamination. You should use separate cutting boards and platters for raw food versus cooked food. When marinating any poultry or meat you should always make extra marinade to use for the grilling. In other words, don’t use the same liquids that you put your meat in.
Use a Chimney Starter
A chimney starter is a great way to get your fire going if you’re using wood or charcoal. This is a special device that is shaped like a metal canister. You put a couple pieces of crumbled up paper at the bottom of the chimney then fill it with your charcoal or wood. In about 20 minutes, the coals are ready to spread evenly on the bottom of your grill. This means no kindling or lighter fluid is needed. Perfect fire every time!
If your barbecue grill has seen better days, then you might want to swap it out for a new model. Even a grill that is covered in the winter can still develop rust. That is definitely not something you want to be adding to your food! Getting rid of your grill is easy when you turn the job over to Junk King Cleveland.
