Summer Outdoor Grilling Tips

Summer Outdoor Grilling Tips 

There's still time to get in another summer outdoor grill or two. These simple grilling tips will ensure you make the most of your grilled meals this summer.

Always Preheat Your Grill

It's important to preheat your grill for 15 to 25 minutes before cooking. Your grill should be 250 to 300 degrees for low heat, 300 to 350 degrees for medium heat, 350 to 400 degrees for medium-high heat and 400 to 450 for high heat. A preheated grill when keep your food moist, prevent sticking and ensure that delicious sear you're seeking.

Brush the Grill When It's Hot

It's always easier to remove debris from your grill when the surface is hot. Once your grill is preheated, use a wire brush to clean the charred debris from the last meal you cooked. Scrape the grill one more time after use. 

Oil the Grill to Prevent Sticking

Even a brand new grill that has never been used can cause food to stick. Always lightly oil your grill with a paper towel that has been soaked in vegetable oil before cooking. Hold the paper towel with tongs and rub it over the hot grill rack. Never use cooking spray to grease a hot grill. 

Always Marinate Your Meat

Marinating infuses your food with more flavor, but it also prevents the formation of carcinogenic HCAs, which often form when grilling red meat, poultry and fish. Marinating your meats can reduce the amount of HCA formation by up to 99 percent.
