Grilling Tips For Labor Day
Labor Day is just around the bend, and one of the worst things that can ruin a good food binge is funky-tasting grilled food.
Cooking over a gas-grill is a good way to avoid this disaster, but your grill fanatics usually swear by the tried-n-true charcoal grill.
However, if a rookie is in charge and insist that they’re all knowledgeable, you may end-up with burgers that taste like lighter fluid with gook stuck to them.
Here are a few grilling tips, from the Kingsford Products Company, which may save the day.
- Prepare the grill by emptying the old ash and cleaning the grates with a wire brush.
- Pre-heat your grill grates. This helps prevent your food from sticking to the grates. You can really tear-up a burger if it clings to the grates.
- Oil your grates, before putting your meat on the grates. And please, use food grade cooking oil and not motor oil (hey….you’d be surprised..but there are some dummies out-there).
- Make sure the coals are GREY with no black showing. If you rush things and lay your meat on the grill with half-burned charcoal, you’re going to have food that taste like lighter fluid. I’m sure we’ve all experienced that.
Following these handy tips may prevent food-grief and getting the “hairy-eyeball” from your ticked-off guest.
