It is just about summertime, which means BBQ time in the backyard. So, when you do decide to get that grill heated up, try one of these tricks!
While they may sound unconventional, these tips are going to make all of the difference. Everything you need to have a successful BBQ, from enhancing the taste to preventing over-grilling. Try each one of these unique grilling ideas and I promise you will not be disappointed.
Heating Half of the Grill
Rather than heating the entire grill, spread the coals only on one half while keeping the other half cool. This will help prevent overcooking the meat and, at the same time, provide an area to keep the finished meat warm.
Ice The Burgers
I know this sounds a bit strange, but after trying it once you want to ice every burger you eat. However, this doesn’t mean you need to freeze your burgers. While grilling the meat, place an ice cube in the center of the patty. As it cooks, the ice will melt and keep the burger nice and juicy.
Apple Juice Over BBQ Sauce
Try putting apple juice inside of a spray bottle and occasionally spray whatever you are grilling. The juice will give it a unique flavor and keep the meat tender.
Stick Free Fish
If you have ever grilled fish, you know how the struggle of unwanted, leftover fish on the grill. Well, by slicing up a lemon this problem is no more. Place the lemon slices on the grill and the fish on top of the slices, which will prevent the fish from sticking. The best part is you do not need to grill it any different than if the fish were directly on the grill.
More Fish Solutions
Try putting your fish into a salt water brine for at least ten minutes before grilling. This will help prevent the fish from breaking apart while on the grill.
Pre-Grill To Be Pre-Pared
While hosting a BBQ, it can be hard to ensure you are not over/undercooking the meat while entertaining the guests. What is a master griller to do? Well, one smart tip is to pre-grill the meat until it is just about done. That way you are able to be a good host and, when people are ready to eat, the burgers only need to be tossed on the grill for a few short minutes!
A successful BBQ starts with delicious food. When the neighbors smell whats coming from your backyard, they won’t be able to stay away. Share these easy grilling tips and be the envy of your block this summer!
