There are two types of the outdoor grilling: gas and charcoal. I personally own the gas grill and can give the cooking tips using this type of grill, only. It is small, fits well on my wooden deck, safe to use, and does a reasonably good job in terms of grilling.
Here are my best five outdoor grilling tips:
1) Take your time when grilling.
Turn the grill on high and let it warm up for a few minutes. Lower the heat and start cooking, turning meat frequently to make sure that it thoroughly cooked.
2) Pre-cook meat before grilling.
For some meat like chicken, pork, and lamb it is a good idea to pre-cook them before grilling to prevent the food poisoning caused by the raw poultry.
3) Know your grill well.
It is important to know where the hot and cold spots are on your gas grill to make sure that your meals are perfectly cooked for everyone to enjoy.
4) Always test the readiness of your meat with the fork or a cooking thermometer.
You don’t want to eat the undercooked or burned meat, which could cause serious health problems: the heartburn, upset stomach, and food poisoning, to name a few.
5) Clean your grill well after use to get rid off the grease.
It is important to use a thoroughly clean grill each time you want to cook your food to prevent the debris and leftovers coming to your freshly cooked dishes.
I hope all the above tips will make your grilling time successful and fun experience throughout spring and summer. Enjoy!
