Summer Grilling - 5 Grilling Tips for The Perfect Barbeque

Summer is coming fast and it is the perfect time for outdoor barbeque. In this article, I will be giving you my favorite tips for grilling the perfect barbeque. You can use the tips to improve your grilling skills and make people in the family enjoy your food.

1. Always start clean.

When you are about to start grilling, make sure you start with a completely clean grill. You might be cooking a very delicious fish last week, but you surely do not want your hot dog to have that fish smell. Clean your grill each and every time you use it. Rinse it with water, wait until it cools down and then clean the surface with baking soda and the racks with dish soap and water.

2. Spray your cooking area with a non-sticky cooking spray before you cook.

By doing this, it will prevent your meat from sticking when you want to rotate or remove it. You do not want your meat sticks or tears because you do not want to lose large amount of juice from the meat which can cause the meat to dry out.

3. Do not place the food on the grill until you get the temperature right.

You need to be aware of the fluctuation in the temperature because it can cause your food to dry out or burn. If you are using a charcoal grill, do make sure that the coals are completely gray in color before you put the meat on the grill. By doing this, you will allow the temperature to level out and the majority of light fluid to burn off.

4. Do not cover your meat in barbeque sauce before cooking.

Marinating your meet before you cook will certainly add flavor. However, covering your meat in barbeque sauce just before cooking will dry your meat faster. This might even cause your meat to burn. As an alternative, lightly salt your meat. Remember that meat has a natural flavor that can only be brought out by the barbeque process itself and you do not want to ruin that.

5. Do not poke the meat while it is cooking.

This is a common mistake that many barbeque beginners make. Poking holes in a meat will cause the juice inside to leak out which goes to the bottom of the grill. This will only make your food dry and unappealing at best. At worst, it can potentially ruin your expensive barbeque grill.
